GIF YouTube is the YouTube-to-GIF converter we’ve all been waiting for… well, GIF lovers at any rate. It uses the ‘do one thing well’ mentality to very easily and effectively turn any YouTube video into an animated GIF of your choosing.

The best part of this converts is that it’s about as simple as it gets. No copy-pasting the YouTube video’s URL or using an extra application or extension. All you need to do is type “gif” before “youtube” in the URL and you’re on your way to creating your GIF: i.e. www.youtube.com/videourl becomes www.gifyoutube.com/videourl.

Once you’ve done that, you simply choose a start time, select the desired duration (up to 10 seconds) and you’ve got yourself a GIF that’s ready to share or save. Doesn’t get much simpler than that.
