Why Would I Want To Turn An Animated GIF Into A Video
One of the main reasons for converting a gif is that many social sharing sites do not support animated GIFs. And they only allow uploads of certain file sizes.
For example, Instagram and Facebook, at the time of writing do not support animated GIFs . You can upload them, but all you will see is the first frame. You will get no animation.
Other social blogging sites like Tumblr have a restriction in both image dimension and file size when it comes to uploading animated GIFs. Files over 1 MB or larger than a height or width of 500 px can not be uploaded. Or if you do they only show up as still images.
