Web: GIF YouTube is a simple webapp with a single purpose. It wants to convert YouTube videos into short GIFs, and make it easy for you to remember how to do that.
If you come across a video, all you need to do is add "GIF" before "YouTube" in the URL, and you will be redirected to the app. For example:
Original video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BT1cd49pIw
To convert to GIF: www.gifyoutube.com/watch?v=2BT1cd49pIw
Next, choose a point in the video to start your GIF and the length (up to 10 seconds). Follow the steps and you'll get your GIF, ready to download or share.
Of course, this is to create just a basic GIF. If you need something better, check out our complete guide to making GIFs.
