Make a GIF from a YouTube video
One of the coolest tricks I have ever learned about YouTube is that you can actually make a GIF from any YouTube video. If you simply add "gif" to the front of any YouTube URL (gifyoutube.com/watch......), a separate website appears that allows you to create a GIF. You can add a caption, crop the photo, and add some visual effects to your GIF. Then, when you're finished, click "Create GIF" and it is done for you!
Other Clever Tricks
Easily Download any YouTube video (legally, of course): Oftentimes, you may find a video that's awesome and you want to use it more than once. In order to download a video, insert "ss" before the video URL and a download will automatically begin. (www.ssyoutube.com/watch......). This will make it easier to use this video in the future from your computer instead of streaming it online!
