How to turn a video into a gif into a stamp - You guys are my only hope!

So, I have this twelve second video I want to change into a gif to make into a stamp like the ones you find on deviantART. Only problem is, I have no idea how to do that. There are no tutorials on dA, and some articles I found on Google use programs that require money to purchase, which I don't have because I am too poor.
:iconsawbplz:


But what I do have is:
The video saved on my computer (type is MPEG-4 Movie (.mp4))
Photoshop CS2
GIMP
Lots of time.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Mean and/or rude comments are not.

I don't know shit about converting videos to .gifs, but if I had to, I would take screenshots of that video every 0.5 seconds (or 0.1, if you want smooth animations), then paste them onto Photoshop. You should be able to make a gif from there.

But the tool the below poster linked works too.

But that would take a long long long ^^; But I think that would work with smaller videos though, so thanks :D

It's only 12 seconds, that's why I suggested that xD

Benderconverter is an online video converter that can convert movie files to animated gifs.
Then from there you can create your stamp in CS2 or Gimp.
