Title: A SYSTEM AND METHODS FOR DYNAMICALLY GENERATING ANIMATED GIF FILES FOR DELIVERY VIA THE NETWORK
Abstract:
A system enables delivery of video clips as animated gif files embedded in e-mail messages sent over a network. The system receives a request to send a video clip via an e-mail. The system fetches the video clip and metadata associated therewith. The system decodes the video clip to a plurality of images. Then, respective of the plurality of images, the system generates an animated gif file. The system further generates an overlay respective of the metadata and adds the overlay to the animated gif file. The system then provides the overlaid animated gif file to, for example, a user device via the network.
