I often find that I don’t need to share a full YouTube video with somebody, I just need them to see a certain part and so I tell them to just skip ahead to whatever timestamp that certain part is about to start.
There is something much easier though (for the recipient), that not many people know about. In the link, you can embed the timestamp, so the YouTube video automatically begins playing from that time in the video.
All you have to do, is add the following to the end of the link (URL): #t=5m40s
What that’ll do, is to begin playing the video at 5 minutes and 40 seconds in. Simply replace the “5” with whatever minutes you need and “40” with whatever seconds you need.
Here’s an example – like if I just want to show you how somebody likes to smell Apple boxes but there’s no need for you to watch the entire video, I’d give out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wu9xQMvVmak#t=2m29s
