Side note: I absolutely despite how Twitter bakes all GIFs into videos and prevents you from saving them as GIFs.
Hilariously bad ui.
Having worked in analytics for a long time I've seen countless examples of metrics like these being needlessly optimized so I find it harder to laugh at.
Usually lots of errors like the following from ffmpeg, then the audio is about a second behind the video
[mp4 @ 0x98668b4620] Non-monotonous DTS in output stream 0:1; previous: 132227, current: 131204; changing to 132228. This may result in incorrect timestamps in the output file.
(I also resent websites which put transparent divs over images or videos to prevent Save-As, but this is really widespread)
I agree. Did anyone write an extension that lets you click on an image, and which would then dig down through the DOM and find its actual source? I'm considering learning how to write browser extensions just to make that.
(And all this time, I've been doing it manually with Imgur images and MTGCardMaker.com. Tangentially, here is an album of MTG cards I made to try and "port" common Powershell functions to MTG: https://imgur.com/a/4sa6v)
This is the best approximation I've seen: https://www.giphoscope.com/
Gonna call it now - physical digital trading cards, animated.
It parses the card names and IDs from a CSV file here:
And calls create_mtg_gif, which calls get_giphy_gif, which requests GIFs from the giphy API by searching for the card name, and then finds one that has an appropriate aspect ratio.
That's hard to believe.
Anyway, this feature its missing for the time-less accounts (e.g not time-sensitive tweets), such as the one featured in this project and other ones like @AwardsDarwin @DeviantArt, @greatestquotes
I like the idea though.
