GIFYouTube – create cool gifs from any YouTube video instantly

gifyoutube

Sorry we’ve got to say it…sometimes GIFs can be a lot of fun. There are times when a whole video is too much, and yet a still image doesn’t say enough, and that’s where these animated images come into their own. The problem is making them. It can be a real hassle trying to grab exactly the few seconds you want. But not any more.

GIFYouTube is a new online service which lets you create your own animated images for fun and/or profit, using nothing more than a YouTube video URL address. Just find the video you would like to grab a bit of, and add the letters gif to the address. Like this https://www.gifyoutube.com/watch?v=ZBAGEeOms-8 .

Give it a name, and select the start time and length of the clip you want to capture, and that’s it.

The system will chunk around for a while (better to use short videos if you want a fast response), and spit out a ready made GIF which you can use wherever you have the need. Like this:
