I recently found out that you can link directly to a specific time in a YouTube video. All you have to do is add a #t= anchor to the end of the URL that indicates the time position in minutes and seconds. Here's an example that links to the video for Cage the Elephant's "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked:"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5t99bpilCKw#t=00m08s

The #t=00m08s anchor causes the video to begin playing zero minutes and eight seconds after the beginning. There's also a way to accomplish the same thing when embedding a video. Add a start parameter to the video's embedded URL in both the embed and param tags. The value of start should be the number of seconds to skip before playback.

Here's an example that skips the first 20 seconds of formal Congressional banter -- for what purpose does the gentleman from Ohio arise? I reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks! -- before U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich's recent speech about TARP funds. The start parameter is in bold:

<object width="480" height="385">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/cq5fT6bhCrE&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0&start=21"></param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/cq5fT6bhCrE&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0&start=21" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed>
</object>

This HTML markup starts the Kucinich video 20 seconds in when a viewer chooses to play it.

I'm developing a video-centric site for a client and this information was super helpful -thanks!


 

Thanks for the info! I've been trying to figure out a way to link to specific vid times.

P.S. The Kucinich vid doesn't work anymore... too bad; it was a good one!


 

Great tutorial.
I did not know this was possible


 

This is awesome.
It is hard to fins such a detailed blog on you tube link specific time.


 

The same code may also be used when you are embedding a YouTube video into your web pages. You can add the #t parameter to YouTube video URL in the embed code and when someone hits play, the video will buffer (play) from exactly that point.

For example, if you want the video to start at the 1min, 45sec mark then add #t=1m45s to the URL.


 

Superb publish for me. You bring out something that has a very good quality. Hope to pick up some new things to learn.
