    What is the simplest way to post a section of a YT video, looped to specified (time) locations ?
    (in other words, I want to post a 5 second snip of a YT video, looped and played over and over)

    I know how to "start" a vid at a certain time....but not how to end it at a certain time.
    If you right-click on a YT vid, there is a "loop" choice, but I think it only loops the entire video.

    i just tried imgur.com/vidgif and it was easy and embedded ok in trial. It has an imgur window around it though, but was easy to use. Not sure if it's the 'easiest' or best way though.

    ....but what if I want to include sound ?
    The GIF works, but of course it has no audio.

    I'm trying to avoid downloading the YT vid, then editing in Adobe...unless I must.
    My experience with the available YT downloaders....is they are fraught with spam, redirects, and add-ons.
    Is there a safe YT downloader ?

    does it have to super incredible quality? when i want to "grab" most things i just use my computer video software and record it. note: i dont know how to make it loop though, guess i could upload it to youtube then use the imgur gif video or one of Micks links to turn it into a gif.

    I have Abobe Premier.....but frankly I haven't studied it enough to know if it would work in this situation.
    I imagine it's about first "saving the vid" to disc, then importing the saved file into Premier.

    I do have VLC Media Player, which can create a loop, but I haven't figured out how to save it to a file.

    I use "Downie", it's $20, and Mac only. I use it every day, so it's worth paying for. Works really well.

    Sorry about that. Should have put it in the testing forum.
