10. Start a video at a particular time
It’s annoying to have to tell someone to skip ahead to the “good part” of a particular fail compilation. Instead, queue up the video to start at a specified moment by tacking on a timestamp to the link. For instance, if you want the video to start precisely at the 1:22 mark, add this to the end of the URL: #t=01m22s.
11. Or share a specific clip from a longer video
If you want to highlight a particular segment of a video, you can create a URL that will start and stop a video to your custom specifications. For instance if you wanted to showcase the moment between 2:00 and 2:10 for this video, you would modify the URL as follows: https://www.youtube.com/v/bYU3j-22360?start=120&end=130. Notice the format: https://www.youtube.com/v/[video ID]?start=[starting time in seconds]&end=[end time in seconds]
