Facebook has now added the ability to link and properly display .gif files., directly in one’s timeline (as opposed to clicking a link and opening a new page to an outside URL). I was wondering if such a share option could be added to this script?
Thanks! The script, as it is, looks great!
Hey Ron, I’m not a big social guy – but if I’m following you correctly you’re wanting to share a Hyena GIF? You could attach a standard share plugin to a Hyena GIF, but you’ll lose all of the Hyena functionality – that wouldn’t be pulled over.. :/ Let me know if you had something else in mind?
Thanks for the really quick reply. No, you nailed it; it’s the functionality I was looking to pull over. Giphy.com (image sharing site) is the leader in this new trend, simply because their script already had the ability to do what I’m looking for. It wasn’t by design, on their part, as much as it was sheer luck (my speculation).
Thanks again! Still a great looking script!
No problem, many places now do video conversion for this type of thing. Hyena doesn’t convert to video (there are a lot of advantages to that, like ease of customizing and image vs a video), but in the case of pulling something over to facebook or something, an online GIF site is probably best
Hello, Would you have more image on the script? I do not voice how to use it ? thank you
Hi Gwenm, I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking? (sorry)
Hi, I do not understand how the script, the demo does not show the operation but the result. I would like pictures or a demo to see if it’s too complicated for me.
Hi Gwenm, gotcha, here’s a link to the documentation which should help http://crusader12.com/Envato/Docs/Hyena/
jquery-Hyena-2.1.css does not validate at W3C CSS Validation page. 20 errors are reported. How come? I am having rendering issues with latest Opera browser for Windows. Thanks for your reply.
Hi, I see the rendering issue in Opera and will get on that asap – looks like a simple fix. CSS validation is not a requirement on any market.
UPDATE: So, I went to attend to the Opera rendering bug which was related to a bug specific to an older version of Opera. It appears they’ve fixed it and I’ve checked the demo page on the latest version of Opera on PC 34.0.2036.31 – no issues.
Hi, thanks for your attending the issue. As for CSS validation, I agree it’s not a market requirement. In fact, it’s a web standards requirement. As for the Opera issue, unfortunately I still see it: please take a look at http://media.supersaas.it/gif/index.html With latest Opera (ver 12.17) on Windows XP the behaviour of Hyena player is different if compared to other browsers such as Chrome, FF and IE 11. Thanks.
Sorry, IE 11 does not belong to the list.
I’m running the latest version of Opera (just updated yesterday) and Windows 7 – your link on my system looks identical to all other browsers you listed. I’ve cleared my cache, check the console, etc – everything is fine here. This has to be related to either something specific to XP or your install. You may want to double check to make sure you’re actually running the latest Opera as I did verify an issue with older versions of Opera. http://envato.d.pr/GvYS http://envato.d.pr/ywr
I love Hyena loads real nice on my home page, but I was wondering if there was anyway to add text on top of the gif upon Hover. I am showcasing videos my production company shot and would love to be able to title it easy without having to throw text inside a video editor and have it baked in the gif.
No there currently isn’t any text support – but this is an interesting feature for the future Hyena doesn’t use videos though, so all you’d have to do is add the text on all frames of the GIF except frame 1.
Ah, you might be better off just leaving Hyena/the GIF out of it altogether and just positioning another DIV right on top that contains your text. Then just hide the text on hover and pass the hover event down to the Hyena container to trigger the Hyena effects
Any chance of this being updated so that it can actually pause a gif, and not stop it? All your examples on your demo page, stop the gif, and start it from the beginning of their loop. I was hoping for something that pauses it where it is currently playing in the loop, and resumes when clicked again.
Hi, not at the moment, since that would entail playing/stopping GIFs in an entirely different manner than how Hyena currently works – it would basically be a completely different plugin.
Hola, es posible crear GIF con este script? es compatible para poder compartir con facebook?
Hi, sorry I don’t speak Spanish.
Hello, you can create GIF with this script? It is compatible to share with facebook?
when there will everything is possible right?
Hi, I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking, but this script was written to add media player style controls to animated GIF files. It doesn’t actually change the format or alter the file in any way and the file is technically still available in the DOM for Facebook sharing, linking, other manipulation, etc.
Thanks for the answer , my question is :
1. You can create animated GIF with this script or only for publication?
2. If the publication is compatible ANIMATED GIF for publication in facebook as they now do in giphy?
Hi, 1. It doesn’t create animated GIFs – you supply the animated GIF and it creates playback controls and styling options for your animated GIFs.
2. The GIF isn’t altered so you can use another plugin to share the GIF as you normally would (Hyena doesn’t get in the way)
Thanks , now I proceed to purchase.
Last question , as I can obtenter the GIF url to share on facebook?
This is very important because I need to share my GIF on facebook groups.
There isn’t any sharing functionality built into this plugin, but you can use any other social sharing plugin for that. You can use GIFs from Facebook or other external sites on your site with Hyena (GIFs don’t need to be on your server). Setting up social sharing of your GIFs will be no more complicated than if the plugin wasn’t being used at all – but it just shares the GIF
Will Hyena support other script than wordpress?
Hi, what did you have in mind? There is the standard jQuery plugin which has all options and can be used on any CMS. You can find that here: https://codecanyon.net/item/hyena-gif-animation-controls/6927684
I have a website running on php and when members post GIF format to the timeline the picture appears but with no GIF functions, I have created a fake ID on my site for you to check and let me know if this gif module can be integrated within the script, thanking you in advance.
Hi, the jQuery version acts on GIFs that are on the page when it loads. After your PHP script runs and the page has finished loading, Hyena will kick in and track down your GIFs with class=”hyena” (or whatever you want to assign to them) and initialize the plugin – making them have media players, interactive events, etc. Anyway, the jQuery version linked above will work on any CMS since it comes into play after the CMS builds the page. If it doesn’t work out for you, I’ll happily provide a refund
I will go ahead and buy it, hopefully I don’t need the refund.
Thanks – let me know if you run into any issues and I’ll be happy to help out
This is sweet. Kinda like cinemagraphs. Can I place these on social media sites?
Can they just loop indef?
Curious to how they may play on facebook, etc with a tap to start, scroll. That won’t work on a social site
