The encoding speeds available with MP4 to GIF converter are ultrafast, superfast, very fast, faster, Fast, medium, slow, slower, very slow. The slower the speed the better is the compression.

  • Does it support both Android and iOS platforms?

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


  • 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 MP4 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.


  • What are the video framerate?

    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. With MP4 to GIF converter you can select the frame rate which you want, according to your need. The frame rates available with us are 24 fps, 30 fps and 60 fps and custom, in which you can type in your desired frame rate. 24 fps are ideal if you want a cinematic look, 30 fps for TV and live sports and 60 fps is ideal for walking videos, blowing candles etc.


  • 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.


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

    MP4 to GIF converter provides all the standard resolutions i.e., 1080p, 720p, 480p, 360p, 240p and 144p. Keep in mind that a higher resolution file size will be more than a file with 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.


  • Will the quality of my videos decrease after converting?

    MP4 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. MP4 to GIF converter also allows all the standard resolutions from 144p to 1080p.


  • What is video encoder?

    Video encoding is a process done to make video files smaller through compression. It is done to convert analog 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 a software that is not capable of playing the video of that codec, the playback fails. At MP4 to GIF converter you can find two best different codecs available, H.264 and MPEG4.


  • 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.

Details of MP4 and GIF file format

Format MP4 GIF
Short Name MP4 GIF
Full Name MPEG-4 Part 14 Graphical Interchange Format File
Category Video file Raster Image Files
Pros Offers multi-platform support. Easy to use. Easily distributable. Compression at a high level while creating smaller files, which makes it perfect for video streaming or compressing high-definition audio-video files. Can content metadata. Can be integrated with 3D graphics and other tools to interact. Supported by all platforms. A versatile file format. The file size is little. Images that appear to be professional. Better Message Conveyance Transparency is favoured.
Cons Codec difficulties might cause audio to drift out of sync with the video. Playback and editing may necessitate a significant amount of computational power. Because it is a lossy format, a higher degree of compression and smaller file size would result in audio and video quality reductions. Because of its popularity, copyrighted files can now be illegally distributed. Pattern with a limited colour palette. It is not possible to edit. It Is Important To Have A Good Internet Connection.

Basic information MPEG4 is a file format for storing media types defined by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group, while it can also store other media types. .mp4 is the most common extension for this type of file. It's a type of multimedia file used to save a movie or video clip. It could also include graphics or subtitles. MP4 is an abbreviation for MPEG-4 Part 14 (MPEG-4), a container format based on the QuickTime File Format (QTFF), which is utilised by.MOV and.QT 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 MP4 files employ the Moving Picture Experts Group's MPEG-4 compression standard (MPEG). The audio and video tracks are compressed separately in this format. The video is compressed using MPEG-4 video encoding, and the audio is encoded using AAC compression, which is the same as that used in.AAC files. Apple and other mobile device manufacturers frequently utilise this file type to store audio, still photos, or video. Audio books, songs, movies, videos, pictures, and podcasts are all examples of this. MPEG-4 is a popular video streaming format. Many MP3 players claim to be able to play MP4 files, which basically implies they can play music and some video files (albeit not always true MP4 files). The MP4 extension allows you to download or stream movies, videos, and audio files. 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.
