A YouTube Tip You Can Use

by Kim Taylor

Ever share a video and find yourself saying something like, “hey, this is a great video, but the important part is at the 2:23 mark.”  And then the person watching the video has to master the art of dragging that little status bar to exactly the right spot … awkward!

Save yourself that awkward moment with this handy tip.

Add #t= and the number of minutes/seconds (m s) to the end of the YouTube URL, create the new link and voila! Awkward crisis averted.

Let’s see this in action …

We love Eric Qualman’s stuff, but I really love this part at the 1:59 mark where he includes the Darth Vader Volkswagen commercial.

Cool, right?  Now, that’s a tip you can use!

    The link didn’t work for me. Both links started the video at the same place: 0:00

  4. May I just say what a relief to uncover somebody who really knows
    what they are talking about on the web. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people have to check this out and understand this side
    of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular because you most certainly have the gift.
