There's an app called Boomerang for Instagram, and it basically takes a 3 second video and then plays it in reverse, and makes it a gif. I'm pretty sure that's how this gif was made
Feels like cheating to allow these on /r/perfectloops, IMO
I'm not sure, but here is the official description.
Boomerang from Instagram makes everyday moments fun and unexpected. Create captivating mini videos that loop back and forth, then share them with your friends.
Find something (or someone!) that's moving, or create a video selfie by switching to the front-facing camera. There’s just one button. Tap it once and Boomerang does the rest: shoots a burst of 10 photos and turns them into a delightful mini video. Share it on Facebook and Instagram right from the app, or save your video to your camera roll to share later.

I can play, create & send videos with Instagram.
You are talking about an other app: <strong>Boomerang from Instagram</strong> and how it interacts with Instagram I presume. So your thread title is somewhat misleading.
I think that all the people that replied to you so far gave some feedback about Instagram itself.
Maybe I'll install it & test later, too busy @ the moment.
There's an app called "Boomerang" made by Instagram.
Pretty sure it's just the bommerang app for instagram: https://apps.apple.com/au/app/boomerang-from-instagram/id1041596399 https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instagram.boomerang&hl=en_AU
No the GIF is not lagging or failing to load properly. The OP link is a direct capture from Instagram.
The workaround for now is to use your camera app to record a short video and then share it from the Instagram camera (to your story). Here's an example of how this turns out when you do it this way: https://gfycat.com/gifs/detail/FatBlackandwhiteJackrabbit
Notice there is no jarred movement (aside from destabilization from the OP3's camera), no lag and no overly "compressed" looking artifacts.
For Instagram's Boomerang feature, you can use this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instagram.boomerang&hl=en
It lets you directly capture a Boomerang fairly easily and share it directly to Instagram (though not directly to the story). From my [limited] testing, this app results in a better capture than Instagram's built-in one but I have to do more tests in different lighting to know for sure.
I hope this helps some people that were feeling frustrated. I meant to post this sooner when complaints first arose. The solution was hidden in the comments but I had been using it for some time.
I hope Instagram can start using the actual camera API now.

Maybe try Instagram's new app?
