Clear your cache and temp files, CTRL+F5, try incognito, different browsers and if nothing works then your ISP is probably timing out during heavy loading or has blocked the host website.

I have a related issue recently: I still see all GIFs/MP4s in old posts, but when I add a new link it doesn’t show the preview/player anymore. Here is for example a GIF which is not previewed…

while exactly the same link was used in this older post from me and still does work:

Anyone has a solution for that?

SOLUTION FOUND (thx @Saiel!)

Add a little “i.” to the imgur URL and it works again! So, instead of this URL (which gets copied into the clipboard if you click “Copy Link” on the imgur website)…

you need to write this:
