Very interesting application (still have to follow the links to see the videos).

Just out of curiosity, does the #4m12s trick also work with YouTube videos, or only from videos that literally show up at the Google Videos property?

P.S. Got here from FriendFeed, if you're interested.

Ontario, as far as I know this time parameter unfortunately only works on Google Video (in pure technical terms Google Video is a bit superior to the YouTube player in some respects).

The comments on Jacko's video make me laugh :) I posted one at the beginning for Blogoscoped readers ;-)

Tried making that #4m12s thing work in YouTube but it doesn't work as far as I can tell. Too bad though, they should put that in ASAP!

Omnisio is a wonderful thing, if only for the following reason: it means the end forever of chasing the parts of a > 10 min video around YouTube's horribly broken related videos section. Never again will you have to click on part 7 to see the link to part 3 – the creator just uploads all the parts, slaps 'em together in omnisio, and posts a link in part 1.

They should really turn overlay comments off by default though.

Is the same mechanism (live comment on videos) you can find in the social-game-network " iminlikewithyou" (dot com).
of course here is better because you can add your own link/video.
