How to post a gif

I am testing a simple method to post a gif. Sometimes videos are too long to upload. But simple apps exist to covert a section of a video into a small gif that can be labeled and uploaded as a small file. 

Here is an example. This was made using app called ImgPlay. 

This is an image. Below it should be a gif. – Looks like even when I upload a gif from my phone; only the first frame is getting uploaded. Need to fix this; to be contd. if you have done this before; please leave a comment below.

    @manu,

    I’ve used the 5seconds gif app successfully in the past. The app is free and very intuitive to use. I recommend it. You can even pay a few bucks to make 10s gif, but that might be unnecessary for most times.

    Need something like this Manu.. Been quite frustrated with the quality that moviemaker dumps out. Also what apps do you use for processing videos.?

    Thanks Saad. I used imgplay; and can make the gif. I am having trouble loading a gif.

    Is the above gif playing when you see the site. On my iPhone; it’s a static image.

    Cheers
    Manu
