    Link doesn't work anymore but this site works, and it doesn't add any annoying banners https://convertio.co/url-converter/

    While convertio.co works, it's quality is poor. It produces images with static in them. An alternative is giphy.com's vine import service: https://giphy.com/giphylovesvine

    The limitations are: vines need to be imported into a giphy account. Each giphy account is allowed to import vines from one vine account. The giphy account user should be the owner of the vine account from which the vines are imported.

    However, the quality of the new GIFs is very good. Much better than convertio.co.

    That's even better than a video because it loops just like a Vine! Great thinking ;)
