The inaugural Thought You Might Be Interested Thursday features YouTubeRepeat. Find a video you want to watch or listen to over and over and over... this is what I do when I am writing and concentrating. Usually to Indigo Girls, Closer to Fine specifically.
Anyway, YouTubeRepeat does just what it says. You replace "tube" in the YouTube URL with "repeat" and bam! You can repeat the video. Or, as the graphic to the right says, drop the URL in to the box on the home page.
My new favorite online tool.
You may not know this, but Mozilla (the place that makes Firefox) has a ton of free resources for folks looking to break into code, build apps, learn front-end design, or just looking to up their GIF game.
Beyond the resources page, which I have found invaluable, they have a set of tools which is a must bookmark.
Some of the tools I have saved include:
- X-Ray Goggles. Learning to code? See the building blocks that make the internet work. Just a programmer looking to see live changes to your website? Use the tool to remix elements with a click -- swapping in images, text, and more.
- Thimble. Create and share your own pages in HTML and CSS. It can even host and share your projects.
- Popcorn Maker. This is the one you are waiting for (probably). You can use it to make GIFs! But you can also remix video, audio, and images with its easy-to-use interface.
- Appmaker. I haven’t used this one myself, but it is a free tool for creating mobile apps that allows you to do so without knowing how to code.
