Re: Converting gifs to MPEG, via one means or another...

I have used the makempeg script that is on my Linux distribution.  It is from the University of Minnesota from a number of years ago.  It works fairly well.

However, I'd probably choose to make it into an animated GIF.  I use gifsicle ( http://www.lcdf.org/~eddietwo/gifsicle/ ).  I started using this because the files are smaller than with MPEG's and you can change the amount of time between frames. 
With 60 frames in a movie, it would flash by using an MPEG in two seconds.
