What is it?

The giflayer API was built to provide a fast, simple and cost-effective way for developers and businesses to automate the process of converting video to GIF, supporting all major video portals (e.g. YouTube, Vimeo, Vine, ... ) and direct URLs containing video of any format.

Our Video to GIF REST API relies on a powerful GIF rendering engine capable of generating animated GIFs at unparalleled speeds and resolutions of up to 30 frames per second, as well as cropping, resizing, creating video trailers in GIF format, and much more.

Requests to the API are made using an easy-to-integrate URL structure (SSL available), API results are delivered in lightweight JSON format, and GIFs are returned within seconds. Customers subscribed to a premium subscription are assigned a specific number of dedicated server entities, allowing them to request multiple concurrent API calls at once.

Who runs it?

The giflayer API is a product built and maintained by apilayer, an Austrian technology company aiming to help developers, startups and larger companies automate and outsource complex processes by serving them with dedicated and handy programming interfaces.

Our goal is to offer quick and simple access to our software with the objective of speeding up development of your applications and easing the burden on your back-end.
