Convert a gif to mp4 with ffmpeg, looping it enough times to ensure it meets
Instagram's minimum video length limit.
infile | A valid gif file to convert. If given a URI, this script will
try to download it for you and then convert it.
outfile | A target filename for the result. If the output filename is not
specified, it will be placed alongside the input file with the
extension '.insta.mp4' added.

# then also provides us with the fps which we need anyway)
