Video to gif, large file size ~3-5GB. Will it work?

Ask questions on how to capture or convert web pages or HTML into images, CSV, PDF or DOCX documents as well on how to convert videos into animated GIF's using our API.


I am currently setting up a process that is analyzing video data.  The videos are not from Youtube Vimeo or other popular sites, they are generic data storage urls where you could watch it in the browser, and where I will request the file to download.

I currently use Grabzit for a lot of stuff and it works well, but I've never tried Video to Gif, will it work for files as large as 3-5GB?



Can I use Nodejs Grabzit to do Video to GIF for videos that are 3-5GB?

Hi Scott,

Yes, you can but it won't conver the whole thing just a snippet. This calculator shows how the max total resolution is calculated.

Hope that helps.
