The difference is that it is faster since it doesn’t download pictures, but rather than that it simply shows up the thumbnails right after pasting the YouTube video link. The only disadvantage (if you can call it that) is that you are “annoyed”by a single, relatively small ad on the bottom of the site. Additionally, BoingBoing allows downloading of freeze frames from the middle of your videos.



Yet another similar website that allows you to collect thumbnail from specific video on YouTube.

Simply insert URL click “Submit”and everything is set. Site has more ads than in previous example, however it has one additional thing which is presentation of some recently grabbed thumbnails by other users. If you keep refreshing the page, you will keep getting new recently downloaded thumbnails – some of which might be quite hilarious to be honest or you might just find a great picture.
