WebM vs. GIF: How to choose
WebM was introduced by Google in 2010. The format was created for both audio and video as an open-source container based on HTML5; it originated from a Matroska media container.
GIF was developed in 1987. It’s basically a graphic format, but it also supports short animated images.
