Sharing a YouTube Video at a Certain Time

How to Link to the Best Part of a YouTube Video

Twenty minutes into The xx's set at Coachella 2013, the English indie pop band busted into Aaliyah's "Hot Like Fire" then brought out none other than Solange to finish the epic cover. In times like these, it's appropriate to just skip ahead to the best part (in this case, 20:26). On YouTube, there are three easy ways to share a link to a specific time in a video.

  • Manually — Add "&t=XmYs" to any YouTube URL, and put the desired minute for X and seconds for Y.
  • From YouTube — On the YouTube page itself, click on the "Share" tab below the video player. Next to the URL, check off "Start at," which will add a time code to the end of the URL.
  • In YouTube comments — When responding to a video using the comment box, any time stamp mentioned in your response will become a hyperlink to that point in the video. For example, "Solange rocked it at 20:24!"
