If you have ever wanted to create a GIF directly from YouTube simply copy the URL and paste it in Gifrun.com
From there you will have to go to the specific part of the video where you would like your GIF to start and then choose the number of seconds (up to 15). You can add text as well if you would like to.
When ready, simply select Create GIF.
Embedded below is a 1 minute and 38 second YouTube tutorial. Go Birds!!
