YouTube just added a really cool feature that I think many of you will find useful. That is the ability to link directly to a specific point within a video hosted on YouTube.
You do it by appending the following code at the end of the YouTube video URL: “#t=02m20s”
So, a url would look like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fZ5bYfErdk#t=02m20s to go to the spot at 2 minutes and 20 seconds in.
It’s important that you use two digit numbers, ie: 02 for 2, otherwise it will not work.
You guys and gals often link to YouTube videos in the comments section to make a point.. and this way you can be even more specific if there is a spot in the video that really makes your point :-)
So, give it a try.. I’m curious to see what you come up with :-)Tweet
