Thanks! The Gfycat and Imgur gifv are two "special" types as they render an HTML page. They then determine what capabilities the browser has and then chooses the most appropriate method of display (.gif, shockwave/flash, webm, etc). I don't really know how best to handle these right now. Any thoughts?

Easiest way is to translate these urls directly to the .gif link but if they change anything it breaks.

mp4 || webm formats + HTML5 video elements is what they (RES) are doing in code. Well, that is what all these "new gif" things are, just video. It's pretty simple but I'll need to verify a few things before moving in this direction as the video tag isn't well supported on mobile.

They both fail to a .gif so I can "fail" it until I get around to the video. From what I've seen, the vid filesizes aren't record breaking reductions compared to .gif files... but you can stop/start, so it has that going for it, which is nice.
