It seems to be all the rage these days.
A video “gif” is a silent video embedded to a site in loop mode. I guess the audio is an optional thing but most go without it.
Step One: Prepare the video file
Use your favorite video editor to trim your video down to just a few seconds. To be an awesome looping “gif”, try your best to make it look seamless. I used kdenlive but almost any modern video editor will work. Render it out to either mp4 (h264) or webm (vp8) or both if you’d like to keep compatibility.
Step Two: The Code
It’s pretty easy. This even works on WordPress.
If you want to add support for h264.
Enjoy your creation!
Now obviously I don’t expect everyones to be as awesome as mine but I’m sure you’ll figure it out.
