You can make high quality animated GIF images online for free, with lots of customization options.
The Imgflip watermark helps other users see where the GIF was created. We really don't want your GIFs to look bad though, so we made it as small as possible while still being readable, and it will not even show up on tiny GIFs. You can disable the watermark completely with a Pro account, if you really need to have watermark-free images.
Some of the popular supported video formats are flv, avi, mov, mp4, mpg, mpeg, wmv, 3gp, asf, swf, ogg, h264, rm. But there are hundreds more...
Imgflip Pro gives you 100MB for uploads and 70MB for video URLs! Large videos can take much longer to download and convert to GIFs, and they are rough on the servers. If you're only using a few seconds of the video, you can try to find a shorter version or use a computer program to chop up the video.
Make sure the video resolution is 480P or higher for any videos you upload. This is the youtube format imgflip uses most, and gifs will generally look great up to a width of 640 when using 480p video. Framerate (FPS) is also very important - your gif will be slow and choppy if the FPS is low. Imgflip Pro will allow you to create even higher quality GIFs by raising the limits on various settings.
Most of the time, this is caused by an old or weird video format. Some video formats don't allow image frames to be extracted as accurately. The best way to fix this is to find a better video source. On youtube, videos with high quality options will give better results.
This can happen if you selected a small portion of the video such that only one frame was used. It can also happen if you're using internet explorer: the gif itself works fine, the browser just doesn't play it.
