Now your server's players can have sprays again! And BETTER!
If you didn't know, having sv_allowupload and sv_allowdownload on are security holes. Malicious players can gain access to any custom files you have, such as your server.cfg, and can even upload things to your server.
So, if you haven't already, you should set these to 0. This breaks default gmod sprays!

This addon replaces default sprays with a safe version. You should still set the two server convars to 0.
This addon lets your players easily use URLs for images. It creates a map-conforming mesh to display the sprays on. This does not hurt anyone's framerate (with special options for really bad PCs). This supports videos, such as webm, gifv, and even youtube URLs (which are muted).

All you have to do is add this workshop item to your server, or subscribe if you're a user wanting this for singleplayer.
This overrides the spray bind to create a SprayMesh, and informs users how to use it!

Update (August 2016): At this time, Imgur is converting all videos to mp4 instead of webm (masked by the "gifv" extension). The Source engine won't let me use MP4 videos for sprays. The workaround is to download the video off imgur, then go to to upload it. Gfycat will make you a webm URL to use with this mod.

I didn't want to use spraymesh anymore, but after removing it from the workshop I still get the message "this server uses spraymesh. . . " what should I do to remove it completely (excluding reinstallation of the game).

you press your normal spraying keybind, then check your console for instructions

@Bletotum Ive placed the console commands. ive set the command. and it just plays only for half a second then goes straight back to being the Black Square saying to activate Videos.

Am i doing something wrong.
Bletotum  [author] Jan 3 @ 7:54am 
@greatsuperfatman There's a console command to set videos to work. If you set it clientside (on your gaming computer) and then exit the game normally with the Quit button in the menu, it will be saved for future sessions. Just to be sure, try using the command while in singleplayer with a map open. To see available console commands, set your spray url to something invalid and place a spray, then look in your console at the help text.
