You may not have noticed, I didn’t, that YouTube now supports deep-linking in their videos. Deep linking means you can tell the video exactly where to start playing – perfect for long videos where you only want to show off a portion of it. The code is easy. You simply add #t=XmXXs (substitute the Xs for the minute and seconds where you want the video to start) to the end of the link code. For instance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjBOTT0tr84#t=20s In the link above, the video is 2:42 long, but when you click the link to view the video, it starts playing at the 20-second mark. Unfortunately, deep-linking does not appear to work when you embed videos in your own site. Hopefully Google adds this feature to YouTube soon.
