How To Deep Link to YouTube Videos




We all of us love YouTube a lot. I’m also a freak of You Tube videos. Whenever I get time, I just digg in YouTube and watch all the popular videos of the day. Sometimes I also show some videos to my friends and family.

But not the whole videos are funny. Sometime a specific part is good and my friends get annoyed when they have to watch the rest of the boring video. No worries now since YouTube team has come up with the Deep Link feature.

This is a very handy feature that will let you play the videos from a specific point. So you can enjoy the exact part of the video.

To create a deep link, append the following to the end of a YouTube video URL: #t=1m15s. This says to link to the time 1:15 – you can replace the numbers before the ‘m’ and the ‘s’ with anything you like.

For example, let the video URL to be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlfKdbWwruY now to deep link to its specific part. Just put this at it end #t=1m18s. So the URL becomes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlfKdbWwruY#t=1m18s. It’s that simple.

A more cooler thing is this that if you mention a specific time in a video comment, e.g. “haha 1:14 is funny”, this will become a hyperlink. Viewers can simply click on the time and the video will automatically jump to the point you are referencing.

Share your thoughts via comments and tell us what do you think about this new cool feature.
