FYI: Link to a Point of Time Within a YouTube Video

Thought this was useful and cool. We often get "(link) go to 1:23 to see the funny thing". I have been waiting for them to add this feature for a long time. Looks like I missed the big news almost a year ago. Better late than never.

Link to a Point of Time Within a YouTube Video
Major hat tip to TechCrunch for sharing with the world a way to link to a certain time point within a video on YouTube.

Take for example this video of a clip from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=p1d19wV1GZQ

If you wanted to share the link but have the video start 56 seconds in where the film cuts away from Ginger Rogers in the Senate Gallery to Jimmy Stewart's character speaking and barely standing as part of a filibuster, then you would simply add:

#t=0m56s

Those aren't random letters and numbers. Put the minute number before the letter 'm' and the seconds number before the letter 's' to direct people to the portion of the video you desire.

Now the link is

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=p1d19wV1GZQ#t=0m56s

That is awesome. Thanks.

Now if they would allow you to pick the frame that shows when you post the video in the first place (or will this allow you to do that)?

This is a direct link to a starting time. It's not an embed, so it doesn't show a picture until you open the video age and it opens stratight to the video at (xy time).

It appears you may be able to do it with embed. Doubt it let's you use a specific video image though.

http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/1...ic-start-time/
YouTube Allows You to Start Playing Embed Video at Specific Start Time
Previously we mentioned about Splicd that is able to split YouTube video to any specific timeframe as preferred. However, Splicd doesn’t provide the embed code that allow you to play the video as embed video in blog or website
. Now, you can have the embed video posted to your blog or website at desired start time by using the feature provided by YouTube embedded player.

YouTube embedded player has a parameter that allows you to specify the start time (in sec) of where the video should start playing. To append this parameter, you need to retrieve the embed URL from YouTube for the video you would like to share, doesn’t matter whether the video is created by you or somebody. Look for the box directly on the right of the video, there is a word marked as Embed. Click on the textbox beside it to highlight the entire URL and CTRL C to copy the embed URL. Append the &start=[number of seconds where video should start playing] parameter in 2 places in the embed URL as shown at below example:

PHP Code:
<object width=”425&#8243; height=”344″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/Z_zxRAfAWug&hl=en&fs=1&start=20“></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/Z_zxRAfAWug&hl=en&fs=1&start=20” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”425″ height=”344″></embed></object> 
After adding the start parameter, you can now copy and paste this embed URL in blog or website and post it as embed video to start at pre-defined start time. YouTube embedded player also provide auto play feature to auto play the video when it is launched. You can achieve this by adding the &autoplay = [how many times you want the video to auto play] parameter in the embed URL as shown at below:

PHP Code:
<object width=”425&#8243; height=”344″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/Z_zxRAfAWug&hl=en&fs=1&start=20&autoplay=1“></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/Z_zxRAfAWug&hl=en&fs=1&start=20&autoplay=1” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”425″ height=”344″></embed></object> 
If you want to share the video through the link in email or instant messenger instead of posting them as embed video, you are allowed to do so. Just copy the embed video source as indicated in embed URL, exp: http://www.youtube.com/v/Z_zxRAfAWug...=20&autoplay=1 and share this link to your friends.
