GIFYouTube turns any YouTube video into an animated GIF

Animated GIFs are a "plague" that continuously reminds me how on Earth do we still put up with a "last-century" obsolete technology to provide short animated images, instead of forcing everyone to agree on a new, more efficiente, standard for it. But as people say, "if you can't beat them..." Today I'll let you know how you can easily create a animated GIF anywhere, without any extra tools.

There are lots of services that allow you to turn YouTube videos into animated GIFs, but this one will be the one easier to remeber: GIFYouTube. Why? Because you just need to head to a YouTube video page and then add "GIF" in the URL:

So, if you have something like

  • www.youtube.com/watch?v=... 
You need to add GIF so it turns into:
  • www.GIFyoutube.com/watch?v=...

Then you just need to select the starting position and the duration for it (with a realtime preview of how it will look like), and then go ahead and create the final GIF that you can share or download.

Can't get any easier, can it?
