just a small thing that allows you to loop videos that people upload, kinda like the one youtube has (for mp4, mpeg, etc)
WHAT DO WE WANT?
WHEN DO WE WANT IT?
We already have a checkbox to put the media in spoiler. It would be easy to put another one on to indicate that a video need to be looped 🤔8
Seconded. I've got an emotes bot that works fine with gifs, but it would be MUCH nicer for our mobile/low-bandwidth users if we could use MP4s instead, since the filesize is so much smaller. The only thing we'd lose if I did that is the ability for videos to auto-loop.
Seriously, I can't believe this hasn't been added yet. It would be so much nicer if we could set videos to loop.5
Perhaps just loop any video under 10 seconds by default?1
I'd love this feature as well. In reply to the last comment, I don't think it's even necessary to limit the looping to videos of a certain length. There's no reason not to auto-loop all videos IMO, what with all the ways to stop playback.3
A looping video option would be awesome, yes!4
YES! Looping plz!!2
seriously please make this possible3
Agreed. Auto-looping of short video clips (optional or default) would be hugely valuable. This request remains very much relevant in July 2021.2
Is discord like the only social media that doesn't loop videos? Guess they really want people to keep using GIFs and struggle with the 8MB limit3
more importantly than struggling with the 8mb limit, seems like they just love seeing people waste their mobile data limit3
funny since gifs are massive in size0
Most definitely want this. Mp4 can be smaller that gif and still have higher quality.0
We want this!!!
It could be an option in the app settings or even just a context menu upon right-click (even better)...
YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, and even Facebook all have this0
For the benefit of anyone else who stumbled upon this via Google, you can get videos to loop by using the greasemonkey / tampermonkey extension and creating a script. I found an old one that didn't work from around 2018, and fixed it to work for 2022;
