Convert any YouTube video to GIF with gifyoutube.com
You can convert any YouTube video to GIF using the URL.
Everyone loves GIFs, but figure out how to make them not a common knowledge. Well, it should be, because all it takes is a little YouTube URL trick.
To create a GIF from a YouTube video:
- Select a video to watch on YouTube and search for the URL at the top of your browser.
- Add the word “gif” just before the domain name reads, “www.gifyoutube.com/[your-video-tag.’
This will bring you gifs.com, with your video already downloaded and ready for editing. Here, you’ll find a list of options to the left side with a timeline bar along the bottom of your video. You can set the GIF duration, crop its frame, add captions, and more.
Click “Create gif” at the top left and it will prompt you with a GIF address and a set of tags. Then click “Next,” and you have a handy landing page through which to share your newly minted GIF. Keep in mind that you can only download this GIF to an offline file by subscribing to gifs.com.
