Repeating video clips
#1
I notice a few people on ALL like SciFi and others have video clips in their signatures that repeat over and over, and you don't need to press 'play' like YouTube videos. How do you do that? It looks really goodSmile

They're called 'Gifs'

There actually animated images rather than videos but you can make them in multiple ways the easiest being using a site to make one from a YouTube video

if you want to know more look here:

They're just like normal images, only compiled into a series continually played in a loop. You can get them from anywhere really, just search for 'gifs'.

Thank you both so much for that!! I had heard of gifs, but I had no idea that was what they are, so I will have a look and see if I can work it outSmile

Thanks once againSmile

Yeah, the format GIF actually stands for Graphics Interchange Format which kinda makes it make sense. There's lots of websites that have them, in fact I'm sure you can choose from a default list on this site for your avatar... I remember a butterfly that flaps its wings.

It should probably be pointed out that not all GIFs are animated, just the ones with multiple frames.
