FLV Video Format FLV Converter
The FLV file, or Flash Video File, was originally developed by Macromedia, a company who were later acquired by Adobe Systems in 2005. FLV files can be opened using software such as Adobe Flash Player and VLC.
Historically Flash video became the de facto file type for almost all video players in the early days of video on the Internet, thanks to the popularity of YouTube, and also the Flash plugin for web browsers, which ensured widespread support for the format. In later years the popularity of the format waned, not least when Apple made a move to HTML5 as their standard file type for streaming video. Sites wuchg as Hulu, Netflix and YouTube itself followed suit in moving to HTML5 for video playback, and in doing so almost killed off the FLV file format.
The file is similar in construction to the standard Flash file (.SWF) in that it stores the audio and the video in much the same way, and just like the standard Flash file it cannot be viewed on iOS.
GIF Image Format GIF Converter
The GIF gets its name from the fact it is an image file saved in the Graphical Interchange Format. The GIF has been around for 30 years and its history is legendary - it has gone from the brink of obsolescence to widespread use thanks largely to the advent of social media and Internet meme culture. The original intended use of the format was quite different to its use today. Created in 1987 by CompuServe and developer Steve Wilhite it was designed to save precious memory whilst providing a convenient container to display images. In the early '90s GIF's were replace by the new JPG and PNG formats, which offered sharper image resolution and more efficient image encoding. However in recent years the GIF has enjoyed something of a renaissance as it offered a widely supported and easy to use method for creating short animated clip (or "memes"). Websites such as Giphy and Tenor built on the back of this trend, and Twitter and Facebook also offered native support for the format.
