Make GIFs from YouTube videos
* Now updated to work with the recent YouTube interface update! *
Problem: There's a 4 second chunk of a YouTube video you desperately need as a GIF.
How do I use GIFit!?
1: Install it
2: Go to any video on http://youtube.com
3: Click the GIFit! icon in the toolbar (should be next to CC, watch later, and settings)
4: Set a start time, end time, and other configuration options
5: Click the big red GIFit! button
6: Wait. I know it's hard, but GIFs take a few seconds
7: Your GIF is ready, click the "Save GIF" button!
Notes about GIFit!:
- It only works when you have YouTube in HTML5 mode, which I believe is the default mode in Chrome these days.
- Some videos on YouTube use the Flash player by force. GIFit! will not work with these videos.
- The GIFs GIFit! makes are preeeetty big. It'll take some time, but later versions of GIFit! should produce smaller GIFs.
- You're awesome.
