Copy urls on any Gfycat page for managing gfys in various formats.


Ctrl+Q: Copy gfy links in sorted order and in plain format.
Ctrl+Shift+Q: Copy gfy links numbered in sorted order.
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Q: Copy gfy links and titles in numbered and sorted order.


Convert urls on any Gfycat page for managing gfys to reddit markdown.


Ctrl+Shift+A: Copy gfy links as markdown.
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+A: Copy gfy links as html iframes.

Gfys will be organized and sectioned by source video if the source can be detected and is valid. Gfys with a title containing [platform@videoID] are currently supported. Gfys containing just [videoID] will assume the platform is youtube.

  • For example, a gfy with the title turtles-[youtube@LXb3EKWsInQ]-1 or turtles-[LXb3EKWsInQ]-1 has a platform value of youtube and a videoID value of LXb3EKWsInQ. The source url will thus be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXb3EKWsInQ or similar.
  • Currently supported platform tags: youtube, vlive.



On any Gfycat page for managing gfys and with tag inputs available:

Ctrl+Shift+X: Copy tags from first gfy on page to all gfys on page.
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+X: Delete last tag from all gfys on page.



Ctrl+Shift+S: Paginate current gfycat profile and add gfy fuzzy search and buttons for sorting and copying gfy links. On hover an overlay presents some gfy information (view count, like count, etc.). Refresh the page when navigating to a new profile. Note that it may take a long time to fetch pages initially.
