Start YouTube Video At Specific Time
When embedding a YouTube video, you can add a “start” parameter to define the number of seconds at which the video should start, as Google Operating System
explains. Here’s a sample snippet:
<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/11Fl9ZVJ7B8&hl=en&fs=1&start=15"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/11Fl9ZVJ7B8&hl=en&fs=1&start=15" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>
This parameter works when embedding but Ionut says it won’t work when linking to a URL at YouTube (though one could create a generic wrapper site for that purpose). Google Video made this possible once, but the feature there is flaky and currently doesn’t seem to work.
