How to start YouTube videos from the middle

  1. To avoid having to manually find a segment of a YouTube video clip during presentations, or worse, downloading the video clips from YouTube before the presentation, to edit them into shape,
  2. try using the “&t=”(for “time(line)”, I presume) query parameter, followed by “#m” (for minutes) and "##s” (for seconds) where the segment you want to show starts.
  3. Example links that you can try inserting into your PowerPoint Slide deck:
    1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDngRk5vImU starts the movie clip Aicha part 1/10 from the beginning;
    2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDngRk5vImU&t=1m10s starts Aicha at 1 minute and 10 seconds;
    3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDngRk5vImU&t=5m10s starts Aicha at 5 minutes and 10 seconds.
