Convert video to .gif really easily. See this commit to my help files as an example:
#Alright, so this should automatically convert a given video into a gif called optimized_output.gif
# See here for explanation:
ffmpeg -i $1 out%04d.gif # Extracts each frame of the video as a single gif
convert -delay 4 out*.gif anim.gif # Combines all the frames into one very nicely animated gif.
convert -layers Optimize anim.gif optimized_output.gif # Optimizes the gif using imagemagick
# vvvvv Cleans up the leftovers
rm out*
rm anim.gif
