shundhammer/qphotoview: Qt-based photo viewer that concentrates on what photographers need.
I like how salty this guy is about all the "other" Linux image viewers. Gave a shoutout to 'xv' though!

Minitube, YouTube app for Mac, Windows and Linux
You really *do* need to set up a Google API key for YouTube (v3):
Google is now requiring an API key in order to access YouTube Data web services. Create a "Browser Key" at https://console.developers.google.com and enable the Youtube Data API.

The key must be specified at compile time as shown below. Alternatively Minitube can read an API key from the GOOGLE_API_KEY environment variable.

Also, when building 2.9 from source (since 3.x is broken on Ubuntu 18.x and elementaryOS 5.0, Juno), you need a few more packages apart from those mentioned in the GitHub README:
<code class="language-bash">
sudo apt install libphonon-dev libphonon4qt5-dev

Manual:Image administration - MediaWiki | https://www.mediawiki.org/
Animated GIFs don't scale with the built in PHP routines. And yet the cached (broken) thumbnails aren't refreshed without expiring the cache.

This combination of stuff was required after I discovered that I had to enable ImageMagick in order to get thumbnails of GIFs. Sometimes you need to purge the old version of a page, or change the thumbnail size in order to get the other sizes to be regenerated, but this does work. Also, if the GIF is large to begin with, you'll get a warning that the thumbnails won't be animated (this happened for me for a 1360x816 px image).

<code class="language-php"># source: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Image_administration#Image_thumbnailing
# this should enable scaling of GIF images; built-in PHP routines won't
$wgUseImageMagick = true;
$wgImageMagickConvertCommand = '/usr/bin/convert';

# if rendered thumbnails are older than this timestamp, they are regenerated
# copy-pasted from https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgCacheEpoch
$wgThumbnailEpoch = 20190314215957;
$wgCacheEpoch = 20190314215957;

# temporarily remove shell time and memory limits (if necessary)
# source: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgMaxShellMemory
#$wgMaxShellTime = 0;
#$wgMaxShellMemory = 0;
