These are the 5 most asked question right now
What formats of videos can i use with Vide-Gif?
It is difficult to list all formats. The general rule is "If it plays in Windows Media Player you can make a Gif out of it".
Here is a non complete list of video formats we have tested
.avi Audio Video Interleave File
.mov Apple QuickTime Movie
.mp4 MPEG-4 Video File
.mpg MPEG Video File
.rm Real Media File
.vob DVD Video Object File
.wmv Windows Media Video File
How long video file can I use?
This is up to you. The important thing to bare in mind is that the you control how large your Video Gif becomes. Do not use every frame when you create your video gif.
3. How do I make the Gif move slowly?
Enter the settings and increase the value of Display Time. Display Time determines the amount of time each image is displayed
4. The Video-Gif installation fails, why?
The first thing to check is if .net is installed. If it is not please download it here. Once it is downloaded you simply doubleclick the installer and follow the instructions. You should estart your computer after the installation before installing Video-Gif.
5. Can I create a Gif from x video format? 
You will need to have a codec or splitter installed for the format. If you can view your video in windows media player you most likely have the required codecs installed

What is the Microsoft .NET Framework and why do I need to install it?
The Microsoft .NET Framework is a component of the Microsoft Windows? operating system used to build and run Windows-based applications. We use it to make Video-Gif a first class application.
How do I know if the Microsoft .NET Framework is installed on my computer?
You can check to see if you already have the .NET Framework installed by using the Windows Control Panel. Go to Add/Remove Programs. Look for Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. If it's not there, you'll need to download and install it from here.

Can I add a starting image on my Video Gif?
You can drag n drop image files to the Video-Gif image list. When adding single images to a capture video make sure the images are of the same dimension as the video you want for best quality

Does many different colours effect the quality of the Gif?

GIF is a rather old image format that was available even before the world wide web. GIF files can be still images or they can be animated images as the ones you can create with Video-GIF. One of the limits of the GIF file format is that they use a palette of 256 unique colours. These colours need to be the same for the whole animated GIF file. When you save a GIF file with video GIF the program will go through all images in the animation and try to create an optimal palette. Even so, for some animations you are going to notice a lower quality due to the necessary change in colours.
