Learn How To Convert WebM to GIF Effortlessly
The main difference between GIFs and WebM files is that GIFs are just a set of still images while WebMs are video files at their core.
They both share the same format, which is based on VP8 compression. However, other than this technical aspect, the two formats differ greatly in how they are encoded.
WebM files are larger than GIF files and need more bandwidth for the animation. A GIF file has an animation compressed into a smaller size which can be loaded quicker. In other words, your website will load much quicker when you have an animated GIF on the page in place of a WebM file.
DoNotPay is here to help you understand how file conversion works using different tools. Once you sign up for DoNotPay, you’ll be able to convert WebM to GIF safely and in seconds! What’s best, you can use our file converter to convert hundreds of other files as well!

The most obvious disadvantage of using online WebM to GIF converters is that they aren't completely secure. When you upload your files to an online service, they are being stored on their servers. With so many shady websites and dubious “free” online converters out there, there’s a high chance your data will be sold to third parties.
Additionally, files downloaded from these sketchy sites may infect your system with malware and viruses. They will hamper your device’s performance and might even give hackers access to your personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.
Another drawback is the lack of control you have over the conversion process. You may not be
able to control the speed at which the animation plays back or save your final product for future use or re-editing. Also, the quality of your converted files could be poor.
Keep in mind that some online file converters will only give you one free conversion at a time. You will either have to pay or wait for enough time to pass to get another free conversion.
Before using an online converter, take the following steps to ensure the safety of your data:
- Check if the website uses SSL encryption
- Look for any logos that might indicate which company owns and operates the tool and the website, and look into said company
- Read user reviews of the tool to see other people’s experiences
Using our file converter, you don’t have to worry about the safety of your data. We will automatically delete all the files you uploaded after 24 hours.
