Link to specific points in YouTube videos

Sometimes when sharing YouTube videos, we only want people to focus on a certain point in the video, not the entire video.

To link to a specific point in a YouTube video, take the video link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WcUqxcWMes

At the end, add &t=1m3s   (Replacing 1 with any numeric value for minutes and replacing 3 with any numeric value for seconds.)

So, in this example, we would have this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WcUqxcWMes&t=1m3s

The video now starts at the 1 minute and 3 second mark.

  1. I always forget about this. Very handy and saves time too!

  2. Reblogged this on Carpet Bomberz Inc. and commented:
    You don’t have to sit through a 19 minute YouTube video to get to the 3 minutes you really want to see. Just link to the correct start point and save yourself and all of your friends and readership a lot of time.
