Now a days, animated GIFs are the best available solution to share the funny moments or some extraordinary moments. So why not use this gift to convert online videos and download to PC and share with others. One such option to convert online videos to GIFs comes as a Firefox add-on “MakeGIF Video Capture“. This add-on works for many popular video streaming sites Vimeo, YouTube, and more. You can record any part of the video you are playing online (HTML5 video) and then save the recording as animated GIF.
