Need help saving video!

Postby CGgater » Mon Dec 10, 2012 9:42 pm

A few of you have short video loops in your signatures. I'm trying to save them to my computer, but they are saved as a picture, not moving video. Under file type, my only two options are gif or "all files." Can somebody hook a brother up?

.gif file extension sounds like the file you're looking for.

Not exactly sure what the problem is.

Are you attempting to save a .gif file and it's somehow saving as a .jpeg or .png file?

Save it as a .gif. You can open it up using any Internet browser. Most image viewing software will only show the first frame of the file. Mac or Windows?

Save it as a .gif and when you want to open it use a browser(after saving - right click - open with - internet explorer).

Also worth mentioning, the thumbnail will be a still shot.

They're saved as a gif. My old computer using XP was idiot proof. My new computer with windows7 apparently is not. :?

If the file format is correct and is not damaged/corrupted, you should have no problem attaching the file to your signature block (ex: [img]filename.gif[/img] ) and/or opening the file with your Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.). To do this (on Windows 7), right-click the .gif file > Open with > Choose default program... > Other programs (drop-down) > desired Internet browser

Correct. They'll only be animated in a viewer or when posted.

Just save them to on online photo account. I've still got a photobucket account that is for nothing other than sleazy images and gifs that I like to post online.

I like sleazy.

Not everyone, as Disney had to change the movie title from "Snow White and the Eight Dwarfs" to seven because they were forced to take out Sleazy by the MPAA.

However, you can thank the porn empire for making sure that Sleazy stays around...
Alv: We have no excuses for this humiliating loss. We have only ourselves to blame. Tennessee most definitely deserved to lose.
Alv: You do realize your signature bums me out more than any other Jort rabble on the GSMB...Any chance you would...remove it?
