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.
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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bv2wAae8tGs
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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bv2wAae8tGs#t=8m21s
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.
