Convert MPEG to GIF
MPEG to GIF Converter Software converts MPEG files
to GIF in batch. GIF is playable in any web browsers. So you can put MPEG video
on your website or blog by converting MPEG to GIF. MPEG to GIF Converter
Software is an all-in-one video and audio converter. The software also supports
common file format such as AVI, TS, 3GP, FLV, OGV, etc. It could convert H264 to SWF, VOB to TS, 3G2 to TS, ASF to H.264 AVC, BIK to M4V, and
MPEG to GIF Converter Software supports batch conversion
that enables you convert bulk MPEG files to GIF at a time. The software is
fully compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is MPEG?
Popular video format standardized by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG);
compressed using MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 compression; often used for creating
movies that are distributed over the Internet. MPEG movies are typically
saved with an .MPG extension. MPEG uses a type of lossy compression, since
some data is removed. But the diminishment of data is generally imperceptible
to the human eye. MPEG-21 (2001): Multimedia framework (MPEG-21). (ISO/IEC
21000) MPEG describes this standard as a multimedia framework and provides
for intellectual property management and protection. While MPEG-2 is the
core of most digital television and DVD formats, it does not completely
specify them. Regional institutions can adapt it to their needs by restricting
and augmenting aspects of the standard. The Video section, part 2 of MPEG-2,
is similar to the previous MPEG-1 standard, but also provides support for
interlaced video, the format used by analog broadcast TV systems. MPEG-1
Systems specifies the logical layout and methods used to store the encoded
audio, video, and other data into a standard bitstream, and to maintain
synchronization between the different contents. This file format is specifically
designed for storage on media, and transmission over data channels, that
are considered relatively reliable. Only limited error protection is defined
by the standard, and small errors in the bitstream may cause noticeable
defects. The MPEG compression methodology is considered asymmetric as the
encoder is more complex than the decoder. MPEG-2/Video is formally known
as ISO/IEC 13818-2 and as ITU-T Rec. H.262. MPEG-2 is a standard for "the
generic coding of moving pictures and associated audio information".
It describes a combination of lossy video compression and lossy audio data
compression methods which permit storage and transmission of movies using
currently available storage media and transmission bandwidth.
What is GIF?
GIF files are a format commonly used for graphics presented on websites.
GIFs can contain a maximum of 256 colors, and are therefore best for images
that contain simple shapes, a limited color palette, text and other elements
as opposed to photos. GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format. GIF images
are compressed using the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) lossless data compression
technique to reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality.
This compression technique was patented in 1985. Controversy over the licensing
agreement between the software patent holder, Unisys, and CompuServe in
1994 spurred the development of the Portable Network Graphics (PNG) standard.
All the relevant patents have now expired. GIF is still an excellent format
for graphics, and this is its purpose today, especially on the web. Graphic
images (like logos or dialog boxes) use few colors. Being limited to 256
colors is not important for a 3 color logo. A 16 color GIF is a very small
file, much smaller, and more clear than any JPG, and ideal for graphics
on the web. As a noun, the word GIF is found in the newer editions of many
dictionaries. In 2012, the American wing of the Oxford University Press
recognized GIF as a verb as well, meaning "to create a GIF file",
as in "GIFing was perfect medium for sharing scenes from the Summer
Olympics". The press's lexicographers voted it their word of the year,
saying that GIFs have evolved into "a tool with serious applications
including research and journalism". GIF images can also be animated
and saved as "animated GIFs," which are often used to display
basic animations on websites. They may also include transparent pixels,
which allow them to blend with different color backgrounds. However, pixels
in a GIF image must be either fully transparent or fully opaque, so the
transparency cannot be faded like a .PNG image.
