Cool YouTube jump trick


Add a bit of code at the end of the YouTube URL to make the video be presented from a specific TIME in the video.

Let's say you want to show your friends this video "Social Networking in Plain English"

Here is the main URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a_KF7TYKVc

If you click that link you will be transported to the YouTube page as usual.

But if you add "#t=51s" it will be started from 51 seconds into the video.

The "t" = "time". "51" is the number of seconds into the video.

Another example. One of my favorite movie scenes can be found in the Bourne Ultimatim trailer. But how do I help my friends see the exact scene immediately instead of watching the whole trailer from the beginning?

I say "click this link to see my fave Bourne scene!"

Voila!

Cool, eh?

Props to Sage Lewis for showing me this trick.

but you want them to see only a small part of the video.

  1. Website video marketing is an optimization technique that utilizes videos instead of the simple text-graphic combination.
