TubePaw is especially useful when you haven’t downloaded YouTube video yet. Simply paste the URL and launch the software, it will automatically start to download video, and when the videos are ready, click Convert button to make a GIF without watermark restriction.
Not only for turning YouTube video to animated GIF, TubePaw also works well with below format conversion.
