    Pros: 

    Love the messenger integration

    Cons: 

    - Would like to see a bigger screen or multiple animation style drawings

    - Can be a bit slow to compile

    I tried the app in messenger and it works nice

Seriously, this deserves to be in a PH collection named "Hall of Fame"
The homepage does a poor job of communicating why you would want to turn a GIF into an HTML5 video. Check out the About page for a demo and more information on why this is awesome. From the site: - Speed - Average is 8 times faster. - Unlimited size - No need to use inferior hosts. Have that 25mb gif you want to share? No problem! - Nifty features - Play in reverse, slo mo, speed up, or pause and analyze frame by frame.
Fortunately, this has been adapted as the default choice of "gif" sharing on Reddit. :) So blazingly fast and smooth, you wonder why everyone doesn't support HTML embedding (or automatically convert GIFs --> HTML5 video).
Love the product fun and easy to use I tried it in messenger, great way to send a sketch!
