Read This If You Send YouTube Video Links To Clients

Here is another interesting blog entry from our friend Dr Marc Dussault.

Have you ever worried about sending someone to a YouTube video and wishing you could get them to start viewing it at a pre-set point so they get the message you want them to get right off the bat and not have to ‘wait’ for it?

Well guess what? You can do just that with this little-known YouTube Tip.

You can specify the minutes and seconds of the start time like this:
add #t=3m03s to the end of the URL to start at 3 minutes and 3 seconds into it, so the entire URL will look like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5705zVMSEqEI#t=3m03s

Another example: add #t=5m58s to the end of the video URL to start playback at 5 minutes 58 seconds:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5705zVMSEqE#t=5m58s

How simple is that?
People’s attention spans are getting shorter and shorter – people will appreciate it if you queue up your YouTube videos for them in advance… Especially if they’ve never seen that before!
