Do you have a personal place online where you share your interests with the outside world? Then you’ve probably tried to share YouTube videos. However, sometimes it can be long videos where you only want to tell about a small part of it – fortunately, it is possible to specify a specific start time! Read more here.
Overall, you can share videos either by posting a link or inserting the entire video (also called “embedding”). To access these options, of course, just click on the “Share” button below the desired video.
However, depending on whether one uses one or the other method, it is different how to limit the video to different times, so we have divided the guide into the following points:
Link to video
When you want to share a link to a YouTube video, which should start at a certain time, insert #t=XmYs finally. If you have done it correctly, you will get a URL similar to this one:
Instead of X, the number of minutes is added, And with Y, of course, you specify seconds – in fact, you can also just specify a number without a letter as an suffix, but then it always counts in seconds. For example, this link leads 1 minute and 30 seconds into the movie trailer for The Hobbit: http://youtu.be/OPVWy1tFXuc#1m30s
The procedure for embedding is slightly different than for links, since here you have the opportunity to specify both start and end time. Here the code is used ?start=XX & amp; end=YYand you always count in seconds. The following piece of code is an example where the video is limited to playing between 50 and 70 seconds.
<iframe src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/…?start=50&end=70″ height=”239″ width=”425″ allowfullscreen=”” frameborder=”0″></iframe>
If you put a real video in practice, you will get the following on your website:
If you do not want to specify an end time, then of course you just ignore this part of the code, and just write ?start=50. We hope this provided a good introduction to sharing YouTube videos, and if you burn inside yourself with a tip, you can of course write a comment.
