So I installed and registered successfully. Then why does it still have a link on the top of program near the Help for "Special Offer for Lifetime License"? Is this program going to expire/self-destruct sometime in the future? The "Licence details" on this page says "unlimited". Just curious.

Tried it on an MP4 video, and got a message saying it was not a supported video file type, or something to that effect. Thing is, the promo here at GOTD has MP4 as the first of file types supported for conversion to GIF. Almost all of the videos I have saved on my hard drive are of that format, and as the promo states it is a supported type, I have to wonder why the Video to GIF Converter is not recognizing that as a supported file type.

Are any other users having this issue?

Nice, easy to use, single use graphics utility for your toolbox. Crop is useful when you shoot in portrait (like many, many phone videos out there) and don't want to include the black bars in the .gif. I do wish I could use the arrow keys to nudge the crop area rather than very fine mouse moves or typing in coordinates. Also a bit strange that when you first open the crop window the whole area is not select until you click the "Use Crop" checkbox, but really that's minor. Nice job Thundersoft. Thanks!

I had an earlier version and both have worked more or less fine. A couple of issues: one, I find it cumbersome to trim the video; only a handful of frames are shown at a time, and you have to wait for more frames to load either before or after the segment that is shown. The easiest way is to play the video and then pause where you want it, but finding the exact spot can be a bit fiddly. The thumbnails are small for my terrible vision.

The second issue is that the program seems to import my phone videos either sideways or upside down, and there is no rotate function. I realize that the issue with the orientation of imported videos probably originates with my iphone, but being able to rotate sideways videos seems like it should be a key feature. There is a flip function, and that works for upside down videos (flip vertical, then flip horizontal), but nothing for sideways video. I ended up making the gif sideways, then using an online editor to rotate it to the correct orientation, But this seems like something that the program itself should have allowed me to do.

For free, I can live with the issues. But I don't think I'd pay for it.

jo, Can you trim the video in another piece of software and then just convert that whole video to GIF?

Mike H, Probably. And I could probably use something else to rotate the video as well. But it would be nice if it were easier to do all within the same program.

Got a slightly lower version, 2.4, when it was offered a while back and it's one of those small, simple to use programs that just does what it needs to without any fuss. Having recently bought a new laptop I'm glad to see this offered again as it means I can pop it on that one, too.

Tried it and basically it works. I had two issues. First, it did not appear to import AVI files, although it imported MP4 and MKV just fine. Second, the custom output size option does not offer to maintain the aspect ratio of the original (or the cropped original if you use that facility) so if you need, for example, a certain fixed height for your GIF then you have to calculate the appropriate width and enter it manually. As a frequent creator of GIFs from video I find this a pain. Apart from these gripes I found that it functions well.

One more complaint, on closing, it does not remember the source or destination folder so the next time I run the program it reverts to the defaults. Since most users probably use specific folders for their videos and gif files this seems like a bit of an oversight.

I have had an earlier version Video To Gif and it did a great job with no glitches. Install was easy then and I downloaded this version and the install was fast and easy. Thank you! It's a keeper!
