Deep Linking into YouTube Videos

Posted on January 8th, 2010 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Blog Posts, Tips & Tricks.

Just a very quick post today to highlight something I only became aware of a couple of days ago because of Jake Archibald, when he posted a youtube link on an internal mailing list – it’s possible to deep link into an arbitrary point within YouTube videos.

I had thought that this was something most other interested people would have known about already, and that I was slow on the uptake as usual, but it turns out that when I mentioned this to Adriano Castro today he wasn’t aware. So, I present to you a method for deep linking into YouTube videos.

  1. Take one YouTube URL.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ust9YBlEfY
    
  2. Watch it, and find a place within it that you’d like to link to.

    In this instance, I want to link 28 seconds in.

  3. Add a fragment to the URL with the format #t=minutesmseconds

    In this instance, the URL would become:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ust9YBlEfY#t=0m28
    
  4. That’s all there is to it. Simples.
