Youtube GIFfer

Youtube GIFfer is a javascript bookmarklet shim to assist in creating animated GIFs from youtube videos directly in the browser.

Setup

Create a bookmarklet pointing to:

javascript:(function(){var s=document.createElement('script');s.setAttribute('src','https://rawgit.com/jcheatham/yt-giffer/master/yt-giffer.js?t='+Date.now());document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(s);})();

Usage

Screenshot

  1. Open up a youtube video.
  2. Click the bookmarklet.
  3. Capture some frames (set some parameters, whatever).
  4. Compile.
  5. Save.

ToDo

In no particular order.

  • Use a Worker.
  • Configurable loop count, per-frame durations.
  • imgur upload.

Contributions

Are welcome via pull request. Or fork it and go crazy. This was only tested on the latest Chrome as a weekend hack, no idea if it works on anything else.

Thanks
