How to convert GIF to MKV?
You can convert GIF to MKV with MConverter in three easy steps:
Choose GIF files from your device
At the top of this page, drag and drop your GIFs. You can also click to select GIF files using your operating system's file picker. Another method is to press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V (⌘+V on Mac) to paste a GIF file you have copied to clipboard. Converting a folder with GIF files to MKV is also supported: simply paste or drag and drop it.
Click or tap on MKV from the list of target formats
Alternatively, you can use the search field to quickly find the format you need, whether it's MKV or something else.
Download your MKV files, after MConverter has finished processing them
There's an option to automatically download the converted MKV files, so you don't have to press the download icon for each MKV. On desktop platforms, you can download the MKV files to a different folder by clicking on SAVE TO... You may see a share icon as well. Use it to directly share the MKVs with other apps.
About the formats
Image file formats
GIF is a widely used image format which supports displaying animations. Its name is synonymous with short, silent, looping videos. However, due to limitations in the design of the GIF format, the animations cannot be very long or have lots of colors, without the file size becoming extremely large.
Optimize GIF Size
To make GIFs smaller in size without reducing quality, you can convert it to a newer, more efficient image format like WebP – which also supports looping animations. Alternatively, you can convert the GIF to a video.
Animated GIF Maker
MConverter lets you create GIF animations from videos. The resolution and frame rate of the original video will be kept, so you can make smooth 60fps GIFs. For greater compatibility, the maximum duration of the created GIF animation is 2 minutes.
Video file formats
MKV files are MatrosKa Video files. Like the Russian Matryoshka doll, which contains multiple smaller dolls nested inside each other, the MKV format can contain multiple video, audio, and subtitle tracks inside a single file. This makes it convenient to have one video with a number of audio and subtitle tracks in different languages, all inside a single playable file.
