Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I have to create an account to use the converter?

    Our website does not require you to sign up or create an account. The platform is absolutely free and you can compress as many files as you want.


  • What is video bitrate?

    Bitrate refers to the amount of data transferred at any given time. A higher transfer speed means more data passes through, and a higher bitrate provides a better-quality video. Simply put, the higher the bitrate the better is the quality of your video. This doesn’t mean you can go overboard with it. Higher bitrate also means higher buffering time. So, it will all depend on your requirement. Bitrate is measured in bits per second(bps). Since bits are lesser values, we use terms like kilobits, megabits, gigabits, depending on the usage. With MKV to GIF converter you can select your own bitrate, at which you want your videos to be processed. The default measurement is kilobits per second. AVI to GIF converter allows you to choose encoding speed i.e., the speed at which you want to convert the video and save it for download. The encoding speeds available with MKV to GIF converter are ultrafast, superfast, very fast, faster, Fast, medium, slow, slower, very slow.


  • What is video encoder?

    Video encoding is a process done to make video files smaller through compression. It is done to convert analogue recordings into digital and to make videos that you would play on the internet. The tools used for video file compression and playback are known as “codecs”. There are many codecs available such as H.264, MPEG-2, VP9, WMV, HEVC and Quicktime. A video may be compressed using different codecs and if you don’t have software that is not capable of playing the video of that codec, the playback fails. At MKV to GIF converter you can find the two best different codecs available, H.264 and MPEG4.


  • Will I be charged to use the website?

  • Can I Extract Audio from my video files on this platform?

    Yes, MKV to GIF converter has an Extract Audio feature with which you can extract the audio from your video files. After uploading your file, you need to select the file format in which you want your audio, and the audio quality. After selecting the desired output format and audio quality, you can extract the audio. The file formats available are MP3 and ACC. The available audio qualities are 48k. 64k, 80k, 96k, 128k, 256k, and 320k. We also have a feature to remove the audio from the video completely.


  • Will my uploaded files be saved on the server?

    Our website works on cloud server and does not save your files. Your files will be completely safe with you, after you have converted your file.


  • What video encoder should I choose?

    The best video codec is H.264. Almost every device that exists supports this codec and it is the most commonly used codec. You can watch H.264 encoded videos on laptops, smartphones, desktops, smart TVs, tablets, gaming consoles and almost every other device which supports video formats. MPEG4 has a slower compression rate as compared to H.264. The image quality and playback are more fluent for files encoded with H.264 encoder. It also has a small file size as compared to MPEG4. Videos are made by multiple still photos taken and projected onto a screen, per second. Frame rate or frames per second is the speed at which pictures are shown in a second. For a normal motion picture 24 frames per second is the standard rate. It means 24 pictures are shown within a second, which looks like a video.


  • Does it support both Android and iOS platforms?

    Yes, our website works on browser, and therefore supports both iOS and Android platforms


  • What are the resolutions available and what will be size of the file of different resolutions?

Keep in mind that a higher resolution file size will be more than a file with a lower resolution. The size of the file will also depend on the length of the video, the resolution, the aspect ratio and the CRF values. AVI to GIF converter allows you to choose the quality of the video as per your requirement. If you want high-quality video, you can choose a higher resolution and the file size will be bigger. But if you care about the size of the file and can compromise in the size then chose a lesser resolution.

  • How long will it take to upload my video?

    The time taken to upload your video for converting depends on the size of your video. Better quality videos with higher resolution will take more time to upload as compared to low-quality videos with lesser resolution. It also depends on the type of video you want to convert. The larger the size of the video, the longer it will take.

Basic information A video file saved in the Matroska multimedia container format is known as an MKV file. It can handle a variety of audio and video codecs, including.SRT,.SSA,.USF (Universal Subtitle Format), and VobSub subtitles. Short video clips, TV shows, and movies are commonly stored as MKV files. A GIF file is a graphic file that has been stored in the Graphical Interchange Format (GIF) (GIF). It can have up to 256 indexed colours and a colour palette that can be a predefined set of colours or customised to the image's colours. GIF files are kept in a lossless format, which means that the image's sharpness is not affected by GIF compression.
Detailed information The Matroska Multimedia Container (MKV) is an open and free standard for video data storage. The file can contain an unlimited number of audio, video, image, and subtitle tracks, making it a handy way to save movies, full TV programmes, and more. The user can jump to all of the different data tracks in the raw format. It's comparable to the.AVI,.ASF, and.MOV formats in that it may have a variety of video, audio, image, and subtitle tracks. Matroska Video files are multimedia files that use the Matroska container format to store one or more video tracks and are identified by the.mkv file extension. The MKV format, which is commonly used to save short video snippets, TV series, and movies, has gained popularity among anime fansubbers. Many of these users add subtitles, and the MKV format is particularly handy because it allows for several audio and subtitle tracks to be combined in one file. Because of its ability to move images, GIF is the most used image file type on the internet. GIFs are a popular web graphics format, particularly for small images and images with text, such as navigation buttons. JPEG (.JPG) images, on the other hand, are better for displaying photos since the number of colours they may display is not limited. GIF images can be animated and stored as "animated GIFs," which are frequently used on websites to display rudimentary animations. They may also contain translucent pixels, allowing them to blend in with a variety of colour backgrounds. However, unlike a.PNG image, pixels in a GIF image must be either entirely transparent or fully opaque, therefore transparency cannot be faded.
