How to make animated Gif images from Youtube videos.

Programs you will need:
Rad Video Tools
Gif Movie Gear
Windows Movie Maker


Links you will need:
Youtube video downloader

Step 1: Locate your youtube video URL

Step 2: Paste your url in the youtube video downloader site and download the flv file.

Step 3: Open Rad Video Tools and browse ro your FLV file. You might need to select "All files'' under ''Files of type''. Then with your file selected click the 'Convert a file' button. Click 'Output type' and select AVI. Click Convert.

Step 4: Take your new AVI file and load it into Windows Movie Maker. Use Windows Movie Maker to edit the video and select only the piece you want to make into a Gif. This doesn't have to be perfect! Just get as close as possible to the desired clip and go to File - Save movie file - and save it.

Step 5: Open Rad video tools again and find your new clip you just made in Windows MM. Now click 'Convert a file' again and this time for the output, choose 'Gif Images' You may want to click 'Browse' and make sure your saving in the proper folder, because this is going to create a lot of Gif images. (Depending on the clip size, expect 50 to 200) Click Convert. Wait.

Step 6: Open Gif Movie Gear and click 'Open file'. Select the frames you want (or just all of them) and click OK. Make sure you try to select them in the right order or your gunna have a fucking mess, trust me. Your gif will automatically start playing when you load it. Play around with the speed, and frames, its pretty simple to use. When your ready click File - Save gif animation as

Step 7: Profit???

Note: If you would like to resize your Gif image, use this place.

once upon a midnight dreary, while i pron surfed, weak and weary, over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot  xxx galore'. While i clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour, " 'Tis not possible!", i muttered, " give me back my free hardcore!"..... quoth the server, 404.

Got a problem.

Whenever I download the youtube video, it comes without an extension. no .flv or anything. So it wont open in the RAD tools, and if I give it an extension it wont work either. Without the extension it says something like "invalid format, cant open". The pic is of what happens when I download it and hit the open button

Simple. When you DL it, its not given a format accidently by windows. The file is probly called "Get_Video" but right click it, select 'rename' then just add the ".Flv" onto the end of it. Then it'll become an FLV file.
