Want to spread some video love in the form of a GIF? Now it's easier than ever thanks to a web app called GIFYouTube.

All you have to do is head over to the site, paste the URL of the YouTube video you want to GIF-ify, choose the start point and duration, wait a few seconds and... bingo! GIF party! Actually, it can be even easier than that. Add the word "gif" to the front of the youtube.com URLā€”making it gifyoutube.com insteadā€”hit enter, and you can skip a few steps.


The output GIFs are just 480 x 270 pixels in size, and the site only seems to work consistently in Chrome. But those niggles aside, it's a fun little tool to create GIFs with little effort. Go try it out. [GIFYouTube via Google+ via Engadget]
