How to Convert a Video to GIF in Node.JS

In solid marketing strategy, gaining audience recognition and conveying your message quickly and efficiently is key. Using GIFs as part of your online outreach will check both boxes, as the format is compatible across most social media platforms and pulls interest without losing your audience’s attention as a longer-form video might. You can use this Cloudmersive API in Node.JS to convert any of your videos to GIF format and upgrade your online media marketing.

The first step in the conversion process is installing the client software:

npm install cloudmersive-video-api-client --save

If you prefer, you can also add this snippet to your package.json:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-video-api-client": "^2.0.1"
}

Then, you can call our function, VideoConvertToGif:

var CloudmersiveVideoApiClient = require('cloudmersive-video-api-client');
var defaultClient = CloudmersiveVideoApiClient.ApiClient.instance;

With this, you can boost your presence online and increase the sharing power of your content. You’ll find your personal API Key on the Cloudmersive website, providing access to 800 calls across all of our APIs.

There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.
