Link to Specific Parts Within a Google Video

Sweet. Google Video now allows you to link straight to a specific part of a video by appending e.g. #1m35s to the video URL. (You can also use this as a hack to fast-forward any video without having to wait for the buffer to load everything.)

For example, here I’m linking to the part in David Hasselhoff’s song “Looking for Freedom” (a big hit in Germany, no less) where David is being pampered by nurses, 2 minutes 15 seconds into the video:

On a related note, the Google Video country-redirection bug is back after Google had it fixed temporarily.
