Navigate to Specific Time Frame on Youtube Videos

Written by Pavan Kumar on May 19, 2009


I know YouTube is the favorite time waster for many of you. Its observed that YouTube videos take some long time to load and hence gets annoying with slower internet connections. In some videos of long duration of say 10 minutes, you want to view only the part which start from 8th minute, you need to load the entire video though its useless. Here is one very good trick to view YouTube videos from any certain point without loading the entire video and hence saving bandwidth and time.

Yoututbe tricks to save bandwidth and time

This can be done only on youtube site and not when you add the embed code into your / other websites. Here is how it works, just add the time duration into the url as described below and you are done.

Example: Original video url:

You want to watch only the part which starts from 8 minutes and 21 seconds, then add #t=8m21s into the url and the final url becomes:

This can also be used even after the page is loaded, just enter the #t= tag in url and hit enter, the video will be served from the specified time without any page reload.

I have seen this trick on some top blog, the blog author embedded a video on some discussion and he highlighted some important points that were discussed some where in the middle of the video using this trick. He made use of this trick very effectively.
