aTube Catcher

Pros and Cons:

      + aTube Catcher is packed with lots of features. It is promoted as a tool for downloading videos, but allows you to do additional things such as conversion of GIF to video files or WMV to GIF among others
      + As much as it might be free, it does not have ads. It means chances of clicking unwanted links while using it are zero, or trying to maneuver around ads while using the app
      - The app is not fast in comparison with others. While its time is not inconvenient, there are faster tools out there in case speed is everything
      - The Help menu might be elaborate, but the aid provided is very inconsistent. The feature of the app provides some important links to tutorials for users and while they might be very helpful, some guides and tutorials are not. However, if one has time and sorts them out, lots of useful information can be found.

Part 4. GIF and Video

GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) refers to a bitmap image format created in 1987 by CompuServe. As a result of its portability and wide support, it is one of the most widely formats used on the internet. GIF supports 8 bits for every pixel and below, ensuring that one image can reference about 256 different colors in a palette. The colors are selected from the RGB 24-bit color space. In addition, GIF supports animations where each frame is accorded a 256 color palette.

GIF's video feature

GIF contains the dynamic picture video feature meaning that its video frames can be played without the need of plug-in, for instance watching movies through GIF files.

Difference between video and GIF

The GIF file might have some video features, but there are a number of areas where video and GIF differ. Firstly, video comes with its own sound while GIF animations do not. Also, GIF files are much smaller while videos are usually much larger in terms of size. At the same time, a number of video formats have a higher resolution as well as a picture of a higher quality with GIF limited to about 256 colors only. Video is habitually used for personal or family content, including movies, with GIF mostly limited to web pages only.
