How to convert a GIF to a video

GIFs are perfect for getting the audience's attention. Our brain is built so that it's more likely to be interested in something that's moving than a static picture.

You can create a GIF from any video, it is very easy to do with Clideo.

It works online on any device including Mac, Windows, Android, and iPhone — no need to install a third-party app or software. The free video to GIF converter supports uploading of all the modern formats such as MP4, AVI, MOV, VOB and more. Also it’s completely secure for your files as our website is protected with an SSL certificate.

Three simple steps separate you from learning how to turn your video into a GIF.

  1. Upload your clip

    To start, you need to open Clideo's Video to GIF Maker. Click "Choose file" to add a file directly from your device.

    If you have a URL of the clip that you want to edit then tap the down-facing arrow and paste it in the appropriate box. In the same drop-down menu, you can choose to upload from cloud storage: Google Drive or Dropbox.

    Alternatively, you can make a video loop. For that, choose how many times you want it to be repeated: 2x to repeat the video twice, 3x to repeat it three times, and so on. If you look down, you will see how long your video has become. For converting it to another format, call the menu on the bottom left.
