Create your custom GIF and Add to DEV articles! 🤓 Convert Video 📹 file to GIF (FREE) 👏 (with video demo)

Sharing GIFs is an awesome way to show your work. If we want to show a little demo, report a bug or share any fun thing we really like GIFs 😊

We, the writers/authors, love to add cool GIFs on our article. Or sometimes we just want to share on Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn.

There are a few paid tools which help to do that. But of course, we, developers can use Terminal and FFMPEG to make our own GIFs free 👏

So, I am showing a really easy to create GIFs from a video.

We can create any screencast video and can just convert that to GIFs, just from our Terminal! 😎

We can convert MP4 /AVI etc file type to GIF.

I have used MacOS for this demo.

Cheers!

As I am trying to contribute contents on the Web, you can buy me a coffee for my hours spent on all of these ❤️😊🌸
