"For the most part I like it."

September 21, 2014  |  By B1GSP1N

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Free! Pretty easy to figure out.

Cons

Like some people mentioned it tries to install a bunch of different software. When installing the first pop up window DONT HIT CONTINUE OR AGREE TO ANYTHING! HIT SKIP AND DECLINE EVERYTHING!!!!

Other than that GIFs turn out small often so you have to play with the dimensions to make it bigger which doesn't always cooperate.
When saving the gif its tedious going through your C drive and picking the place over and over again. If you make one gif then make another and save it to the same place it will overwrite it, so always change the name of the gif after your create it.

Summary

To avoid extra stupid software at setup:
1. Hit SKIP in the bottom left corner instead of accept & install (This would've changed your browser homepage and search engine)
2. Hit DECLINE in the bottom left corner (more crap they try to stick you with)
3. DECLINE AGAIN
4. DECLINE AGAIN
5. DECLINE AGAIN
The only time you're safe from stupid programs is when it says, "Welcome to the Free Video to GIF Maker Setup Wizard"

Other than what I stated in the cons there isn't much to worry about.

"Installed a dozen or so other software packages"

April 28, 2014  |  By samoney

2014-04-28 15:54:38  |  By samoney

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

None - I still haven't used the software because I'm still trying to track down the other programs / toolbars this PoS program installed.

Cons

Installed a dozen or so no-name media players, toolbars, and search engines. Changed my browser settings. Still trying to track find all the things this software package tweaked - don't download it.

Summary

Don't download. Use an online editor or something.

"Read the negative reviews for the truth"

January 24, 2014  |  By johnalternate

2014-01-24 20:58:44  |  By johnalternate

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

that there are negative reviews posted

Cons

Having had experience with other downloads from cnet, I've learned that 5 star comments are not genuine reviews. They are mostly (especially in this case) posted by the creator (in this case: plagiarizer) or a person with a vested interest.

"brazen Chinese programmer"

November 07, 2013  |  By mkamazawa

2013-11-07 19:08:53  |  By mkamazawa

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Just look at the Cons below and you will know the truth.

Cons

The brazen Chinese programmer packed other software author's program and submit to download.com. The origin software is Free Video to GIF Converter at http://download.cnet.com/Free-Video-to-GIF-Converter/3000-2186_4-75628588.html

Never download this software.

And, all the review is from some

"Other reviews by same person"

November 06, 2013  |  By TheMongoose2

2013-11-06 23:31:42  |  By TheMongoose2

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

I can't really see any.

Cons

Unfriendly interface, doesn't allow you to use the entire video (only uses whole seconds, so if you have already used another program to trim a video to appropriate length and a fraction of a second is there, it does not see this as something to be used), Can't preview, have to choose your own dimensions (no presets), gif moves SO slowly once it's created - does not move at video rate, even if this is selected. You're better off using one of the web based gif creators that watermark the gif. don't waste your time here.
