>converting video to gif because no sound
Listen up motherfucker, don't.
Gifs are a great format, but they're an specific format, they do one thing and they do it well, and that thing is lossless animation with a limited palete of indexed colors. See these gifs? Converting them to webm would cause a loss of quality and a size increase because they require what gifs excel at.
Can you get a good video to gif conversion? Maybe if the planets align, the source is lossless
, and there's less than 256 colors. In that case you'll get a good compression, but as a rule of thumb gifs are only good if they were made as gifs. Here's the thing though
WEBMS ARE AN INHERENTLY LOSSY FORMAT
They were made for one thing and one thing only, streaming. They crush shit down into oblivion as to make it small as possible but have it still look similar enough. Converting that into a gif is the most stupid braindead retarded thing there is.
Even if the original source was a gif the compression adds new colors sending it over the treshold, and a fuckton of artifacts which the gif format simply wasn't made to work with. That means webm to gif compression bloats the size while decreasing quality
