(Please be patient, video conversion may take a while, especially for long gifs with high frame rate)
Upload and convert video to GIF
With this online video converter you can upload your mp4, avi, WebM, flv, wmv and many other popular types of video and rich media files to turn them into high-quality animated GIFs. Source video file can be uploaded from your computer or smartphone or fetched from another server by URL.
After upload, you can select the part of the video you want to cut, entering the start and end times. If nothing is selected, the converter will make a GIF from the first five seconds of the video clip. If you want to change the dimensions of the GIF or crop out only part of the video, you can use our resize and crop tools on the GIF after finishing the conversion.
We offer MP4 to GIF, WebM to GIF, AVI to GIF, MOV to GIF, FLV to GIF, as well as 3GP, OGV, M4V, ASF, and other format converters. It's possible to convert transparent video (with alpha channel) to transparent GIF as well. It can also convert some SWF (flash) files, but currently, not all of them.
- Frame rate (fps) is the number of frames shown each second. A higher frame rate gives smoother and more cinematic animation, thus increasing perceived quality but greatly increases the file size. Choose accordingly for your needs.
- To keep the file size and processing time reasonable, we limit the maximum length of the part you can select for conversion (duration) depending on the selected frame rate. If you want to create longer GIFs, you have to select lower fps. Maximum length at 5 fps is 60 seconds; at 10 fps it's lowered to 30 seconds, and so on.
- Pause the video and click "Use current video position" to get an accurate start and end time for your GIF.
- Use our crop, resize, and optimization tools below the output image, to adjust the dimensions and file size.
If you are looking for a tool to perform conversion the other way around (GIF to Video), give our GIF to MP4 or GIF to WebM converter a try.
Or if you want to make a GIF from multiple images, use our GIF maker instead.
