Most of the gifs in library not loading

Most of the older content in my library is not loading or playing, like I can still see them in my library, edit the title or add tags so I know they aren't deleted or something. Curious if anyone else is suffering from the same issue.

already contacted support two times and both times got nothing in return

Nudity is back on

Looks like Nudity is back on Gfycat. Seeing it a lot now and reporting it does no good.

gfycat player broken?

Noticed this problem yesterday when I watch some videos or gifs, whether it is on reddit or the gfycat site, the clip is being played but it is not centered and when I click the HD button it makes it worse. (sd 1) (sd 2) (hd 1) (hd 2) Is this just on my end? Any solution to fix this problem? I'm currently using Google Chrome Version 107.0.504.63. Thank you!

Gfycat videos not playing automatically in HD.

I've noticed that the footage I post on Reddit always comes out by default in SD quality in the desktop version and very low quality in the Reddit mobile app. However, when I use third-party Reddit apps, the videos/gifs play in the HD quality I uploaded them in. Is there any way for me to set up any settings that would allow for gifs to be played automatically on HD on the official Reddit platforms so other users can view my content in better detail?

Gfycat's policy on linking/embedding gfys on aggregate websites

What's gfycat's policy when it comes to embedding and direct linking to gfys from let's say an archive website for a subreddit.

I've seen quite a few websites that offers better search functionality than reddit or gfycat and they just directly link to the giant version of the gfy in the <video> tag. What's your stance on this?

No Response from Support

Have been trying to get gfys reviewed for the past two weeks. Have tried the email and the reddit option to message mods no response. Seeing as the last post hasnt been answered either would like to know what the situation is with support and would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Have to log in every time now

Been using gfycat for a few years now and the past few months i have to log in everytime i visit. Not only that, every time i change pages it'll log me out. Anyone else having this issue? i've tried deleting the cookies for gfycat.com but it doesnt fix it.

Update Clarification: So it seems i can navigate the website within the same tab without having to log in again but if i open a different part of the website in a new tab(i.e. middle click) it will do it.

Signing out when opening new tab?

So when I am uploading, I like to open my profile in a new tab as to not interrupt the upload. And every single time I open gfycat in a new tab, it signs me out. This also happens if I just close the tab, and open gfycat again; I'm signed out. Why do I keep getting signed out?

error count from ctrl shift j menu goes down the more i spam ctrl f5 ?

so when i load the page it keeps some cache where it looks like this https://i.imgur.com/GYYYA97.png

then when i ctrl f5 it will look like this https://i.imgur.com/uj7QS7S.png

now the important thing to note is all the errors are now in blue and located here https://i.imgur.com/Atf61h2.png

and expanded on look like this https://i.imgur.com/O9DjpjJ.png

but if do another ctrl f5 https://i.imgur.com/v3QAhRs.png suddenly its lower

and with very refresh it gets even lower https://i.imgur.com/e1wW7Eo.png

and then i haven't been able to get it to go any lower than 15 errors https://i.imgur.com/Cxqwz8f.png

and i know nothing about programming but could this have anything to do why its a 50/50 on whether i can upload or not

also why does it always have the same errors when i 1st load the site forcing me to ctrl f5 to clear them

Show search results only for specified tags for an account

Hi, is there a way to search for GIFs for an account with specified tags and only shows the result for that? Currently I can do like "@username #tags" and it will show GIFs by that account with the specified tags for the first few posts. But, the latter ones will then show posts by different accounts, and sometimes different tags.

Is there a way for the search results to only show GIFs of the specified account and tags? Thanks in advance

Why is it that every time I make a post with sound, people say "there's no sound"?

https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/vi4s2w/in_insurgency_sandstorm_if_someone_fires_an_rpg/

https://www.reddit.com/r/insurgency/comments/vi4rko/someone_thought_to_code_it_so_that_when_someone/

All the comments say "there's no audio". But there is audio. The audio works fine on my desktop and on my mobile. I don't have to go through any extra steps to make the audio work. I don't have to turn it on, or hit volume up, or leave Reddit to go to the gfycat website. This has happened before too. Even though I click the sound option and the sound works fine for me, everyone always says there's no audio when I use gfycat.

I'd love to use it because it supports 60fps and Reddit doesn't, but it's kinda useless for gaming clips if the audio is gonna be buggy like this.

Too many issues

Honestly what is the problem? First i spend 30 minutes trying to figure out why i can't upload my video in create. Guess youtube blocks gyfcat yet on the website it claims youtube works. Then i upload the raw video from my PC and it gets stuck forever on encoding. I try to make an account so i can check my library for it and nothing happens when i click submit as i create a username and password. So many people use this yet it handles like some POS 3rd world country's highschool assignment website that got a D-

Upload multiple gifs with sound at the same time?

Something I've been doing recently is trimming out bits of footage as clips and uploading them as a bunch to Gfycat. Recently, I've learned that it is possible for gifs on Gfycat to contain sound. This is super helpful, since I use Gfycat to reference footage for use in future projects. Being able to simply download the mp4 file from the site itself, instead of having to dig up the old file, and reference a timestamp would save me tons of time. However, the process of uploading gif with sound is a bit tricky.

As to my knowledge, I can only upload gifs with sound if I go to the create tab, select a video individually, click the continue button twice (through trim and captions), and at the very end select the "sound on" option before clicking finish. Seeing how I've already trimmed the footage and do not wish to add captions, is it possible to set sound on as my default preference and upload multiple gifs at once? This would save me tons of time instead of having to do them all individually.

Uhm... I can't Sign Up, stuck at the screen.

I fill out all the info, do the Captcha, I press Sign Up, and nothing happens.

I tried it on different browsers, but it just kinda "loads" a bit in the blue Sign Up button, but nothing happens.

Encoder gives me "something went wrong" error when I try to load a video with a long subtitle or many subtitles

Video without subtitles works fine: https://gfycat.com/pleasingimperturbableblackmamba

The subtitles I tried to add:

"201 meters - didn't register the hit. Moved closer - value didn't update. I shot second time from <200m - shows previously dealt damage. Moved further - shield visually regenerates while I'm hitting it."

The same happens when it cut in 4 smaller subtitles. Also, the same happened with my another video.

So, the question. Is it caused by Gfycat or videos themselves?

Thanks in advance!

P.S. gfycat.com/create

Thumbnails appear to be down across Reddit over the last two hours

I noticed some of my gfycat links didn't have thumbnails on Reddit, so decided to search to see that most recent gfycat uploads to Reddit don't have thumbnails right now. Something wrong on Reddit or Gfy's end?

Collection description's gyfycat

Where can i see/change my Collection description's and tags that i choose for collections.

When i make a collection, i am giving the option to describe it and give it tags, but i can't see those tags or the description late. Is this just how it is intended? would be nice if we could personalize/categorize collection's better.
