When it comes to GIF, its ease of sharing and the conciseness of expressing ideas are self-explanatory. Nowadays, most GIF makers allow us to convert videos from websites like YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc to GIF. Doing so usually requires the corresponding video URL, which loads the video source to the program.

Of course, it would be much sweet if it provides GIF as an output option, which saves the further need of programs for converting the recorded video to GIF.
