Export your Vine videos to Giphy

Twitter announced last week that it plans to shut down its "six seconds or less" video service Vine in the coming months.

The company is going through financial turmoil currently, and as part of the restructuring of Twitter, it made the decision to put Vine to rest.

Twitter confirmed that it won't delete any Vines -- just yet -- that users of the service have created, and that users will be able to access and download their Vines.

You’ll be able to access and download your Vines. We’ll be keeping the website online because we think it’s important to still be able to watch all the incredible Vines that have been made.

While you can download all your Vines directly to one of your devices, you may prefer them to remain accessible online. That's the case on the Vine website for the foreseeable future, but Twitter will pull the plug on Vine eventually.

Giphy, the popular animated gif service, has created an online tool that you can use to export all your Vine videos (Vines) to the service.

The process requires a Giphy account which you can create for free. All that is left to do afterwards is to paste the Vine profile URL on the Giphy "loves" Vine website, and hit the go and import buttons.

Giphy downloads all Vines of the profile first to turn them into animated gifs afterwards. The process may take a while depending on the number of Vines uploaded to the selected Vine account.

Please note that you are allowed to only export one Vine account for each Giphy account. This means that it is not suitable for backing up videos that you are not the creator of.

All created animated gifs are added to your library on Giphy from where you can access them. Giphy links to the original Vine and provides an option to download the source video under the "advanced tab on the website.

    The Onion has a comment on the demise of Vine:

    ‘“It was good in its heyday, but attention spans have really dropped since 2013.”
