Make GIFs from YouTube videos

Image from store GIFit!
Description from store * 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. Solution: GIFit! 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.

  • (2022-06-09) Marius Heinz: The best gif maker. Better than any other programs. 10/10
  • (2021-10-07) BosApollo: Has not worked in a long time. If you try to make a gif on you tube it stops halfway through the process.
  • (2021-02-05) Iñaki Jiménez Miranda: A veces necesito convertir un trozo de un vídeo de YouTube en un gif y echo mano de esta solución.
  • (2020-11-05) HarrazOtame: It works!!!
  • (2020-04-13) Jeffrey: Keeps sending me to the Chrome web store when I click the button when I'm on a YouTube. And now I'm here giving it a one star review. Useless extension
  • (2020-03-11) Zerdone: Very, very, very nice and helpful.
  • (2019-10-10) Val Bess: incredible. truly. works perfectly. I'm giving it 5 stars but there is room for improvement. The start/end times are rounded to 1 second so it's not possible the get the exact gif I want every time. I usually have to do further processing. But even so, this tool works extremely well and is very useful.

  • (2018-09-25) Phim Learning: very good
  • (2018-07-29) Albert Yau: Pretty good at what it does. I would like the gif to start where I am at, unless I directly change the start or end times. Also I'm starting to see double icons on Youtube.

    I've been using GIFit! for years and have seen it lag behind a few updates for a day or so, but it seems to not be working at all anymore. Has it been deactivated by google or something?

    GIFit button doesn't show up anymore
  • (2017-08-31, v:1.0.6) Gifit worked for one day only
    This app worked the first day I installed it, and now the Gifit icon has disappeared. I'm going to try uninstalling and installing again to see if that helps. Any other suggestions?
  • (2017-08-29, v:1.0.6) Evan Prescott: Simply doesn't function.
    All this extension does, is add a broken button to the task bar. You click it and it opens a drop-down menu which has several items on it. One, is a button that just brings you back to this store page. Useful. The next is an options button that is grayed out and doesn't work. And the others are just to either hide or uninstall it. gg dev, you suck.
  • (2017-08-28, v:1.0.6) Does not seem to work with Vimeo
    I am trying to capture a gif from Vimeo and I do not get the Gifit options that I get with YouTube. Constant Contact webinar said it could be used with Vimeo. I am having no luck.
