GIF Maker — Video-to-GIF Creator

Step 1: Add Video File or Video Link
Choose video by entering YouTube or video URL, dragging and dropping a video file, or clicking the blue button to browse your files. There are no files size or duration limits for the videos you use. Gfycat supports .MP4, .WEBM, .MOV and many other video formats.
Tip: Videos that are 100s of MBs or greater than 1GB will take a long time to upload to our system from your device. We recommend using smaller files unless you are on a very high-speed connection.
