Son of GIFV

Convert animated GIFs to GIFV format

Animated GIFs are large. The GIFV format introduced by Imgur solves this problem by converting animated GIFs to MP4 and embedding them in an HTML page. This plugin leverages the Imgur API to convert animated GIFs hosted on your WordPress site into locally hosted GIFV URLs.

  • Adds "Convert to GIFV" to the Media Library
  • Creates URLs for converted GIFV files (ex: mysite.com/animated.gifv)
  • Twitter card and Facebook opengraph support for sharing
  • WP-CLI support via "gifv"
