    I wonder if there's a way to add HTML or HTML5 video to posts like how you can add images? If not then can it be added?

    I have a GIF thread and it would save so much bandwidth if I could convert everything to HTML5 video using Gfycat and then embed those.

    Upload video to youtube and use the youtube tag

    [youtube]<youtube tag string after the "v=" part of the url>[/youtube]

    I was thinking of this but the problem is they don't loop like a GIF, however Gfycat has set it up to loop.

    How long are the gifs? Just make a video that loops 4 or 5 times, so they get the idea. (Though, I could see that replay could be a problem, since embedded youtube video tends to go to the "related-video/you-might-like" view at end.)

    You tube videos are the only video content members can embed in posts.

    This one simulates a loop, but it only goes on for ten hours


    (admittedly, the original source was a flash animation, not a gif)
