Video memes are extremely popular online, whether you’re sharing them with your friends on Facebook or posting them on YouTube. If you have some video clips and pictures of your own, creating and sharing your own video meme can be a fun way to stay connected with your friends while still showing off your creative side. If you’re new to the concept of video memes, though, it can be hard to know where to begin. Never fear, though. You can always get inspired with countless templates from a free video maker. 

We’ve compiled this list of five top sites to make a video meme that will help get you started on the right foot!


With Boomerang, you can capture video and turn it into an animated GIF or stop-motion loop. If you’re editing long segments of film for a meme, Boomerang is a valuable tool for curating your content. Additionally, it allows you to animate text using its built-in caption creator. This is perfect for creating funny memes with words. 

The mobile app also comes in handy when you want to create videos without having to boot up your computer. Plus, if all else fails, Boomerang has a feature called Rewind that allows you to edit out mistakes as well as insert missing scenes. It doesn’t always work perfectly (memes need flaws), but it works great in an emergency.


Of all of these options, GifMaker is one of our favorites. It’s simple, easy-to-use interface is perfect for first-time video meme makers. Its menu offers quick access to each of its features so you can easily choose your text, background color and font type. Most importantly, it’s free! The only downside to GifMaker is that it currently only supports still image backgrounds (ie. no moving images). So if you want that cool kitten running at breakneck speed in your memes, try something else on our list instead. But if you just want to superimpose text over a solid color or use photos from another site, then start here.

Splice Free Video Maker

This free video maker gives you access to templates and pre-made videos. It allows you to customize them with your own voice or text and image content. If that’s not enough, they also offer custom service packages.

Final Word

In short: what separates these five services from free alternatives? Quality and ease of use. The top free tools aren’t bad, but as soon as you want to take things beyond quick logos or banner ads, it quickly becomes apparent that a small fee is worth paying for advanced features and solid customization options. Nevertheless, just opt for the one that best fits your preference. And then, have fun creating meme videos!
