 FFmpeg needs to be built with @code{--enable-libquvi} for this demuxer to be
+ at section gif
+Animated GIF demuxer.
+It accepts the following options:
+ at table @option
+ at item min_delay
+Set the minimum valid delay between frames in hundredths of seconds.
+Range is 0 to 6000. Default value is 2.
+ at item default_delay
+Set the default delay between frames in hundredths of seconds.
+Range is 0 to 6000. Default value is 10.
+ at item ignore_loop
+GIF files can contain information to loop a certain number of times (or
+infinitely). If @option{ignore_loop} is set to 1, then the loop setting
+from the input will be ignored and looping will not occur. If set to 0,
+then looping will occur and will cycle the number of times according to
+the GIF. Default value is 1.
+ at end table
+For example, with the overlay filter, place an infinitely looping GIF
+over another video:
+ at example
+ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -ignore_loop 0 -i input.gif -filter_complex overlay=shortest=1 out.mkv
+ at end example
+Note that in the above example the shortest option for overlay filter is
+used to end the output video at the length of the shortest input file,
+which in this case is @file{input.mp4} as the GIF in this example loops
