I just discovered a pretty nifty YouTube feature: clicking on the YouTube logo in an embedded video (on a site such as mine) will take you to youtube.com and continue playing where you left off! The resulting URL has a parameter at the end that dictates where the video starts playing: #at=x, where x is the start time in seconds. So, if I wanted you to start listening to Kutiman’s “My Favorite Color” right when the sax comes in, I would use this link: http://youtube.com/watch?v=nIl4LkHYRkg&#at=112
Unfortunately, this trick doesn’t work with the HTML5 version of YouTube videos, and neither do these two other Flash-only features on youtube.com: right-clicking to copy the URL at the current time, and using the number and/or left and right arrow keys to jump to various sections of the video.
