Wow, this command below reduces the size and keeps most of the color. Sweet!
avconv -i lorenzs.mp4 -pix_fmt rgb24 -r 10 -f gif - | gifsicle --optimize=3 --delay=3 > lorenzsg.gif
Video to .gif formatLorenz attractors generated with python, scipy, numpy , matplotlib, avconv and Lorenz software.
So this is a test to see if the Lorenz video can be seen as a gif using these commands.

I will just publish and change it. It is webm originally with Vp8, but what Goog did to it, IDK.
Okay, I published it and then I can see it uses flash and I don't do flash. I will put it on my web site where I control formats. I am doing conversions with avconv so it may be a day or so. I will put the code there also.
