GIFs have now regained popularity and anywhere we see, comments with picture, mostly they are GIF. If you are someone who constantly searches for GIF around the web so you could use it, or one who wants a favorite clip turned to GIF, you can do it now with atmost ease. No need for any software to e installed on your PC , download entire video from YouTube or any hard stuff.
Just add “gif” to the YouTube url and you are done. All you have to do is select the time between which the GIF is to be made and TADA you have your custom GIF. Just prefix the word “gif” after “www.” and before “youtube.com” as www.gifyoutube.com/watch?v= and the options to turn to GIF will appear before you.
This is not an official service from YouTube, but is an third party service that uses similar url pattern as youtube’s to provide you the service. It fetches the video from youtube and its internal GIF processing engine converts the frames to a GIF. Go on and try some for yourselves.
