Not sure how to make an animated GIF? Don't worry, you don't have to learn a darn thing -- an unofficial web tool will do it for you. The website, simply named GIFYouTube, does exactly what it sounds like: it converts your favorite streaming video into an animated image. It's ridiculously easy to use (simply adding "GIF" to the front of any video URL kicks off the process), but it isn't perfect: GIFs only output in the above size for now, and the user controls are limited to selecting the animation's start time and duration. We also found that it only worked consistently in Chrome. That said, it's a neat tool, and its creators plan to add Webm and caption support in the near future. Want to check it out?
