    In fact this concept is true if you want to embed the video at a current time. Use this code (not sure whether it would show up in the comment form)

    Of course you have to replace the ID in the above code and the time at “&start=15” where 15 is the number of seconds.

    When users, click the play button the video will start after 15th second.

    Just as I thought, the code was not allowed.

    Anyway, you have to add this parameter “&start=15” (without quotes), right after the video ID in the YouTube video embed code. Remember to use it twice.

    Thank you Webtrickz,
    I really say thanks to webtrickz by heart. But I’ve an objection. Actually, most of the tricks have problem, i.e., not working on others’ computers. I request the website to arrange the testing of every trick properly, before it is posted.

    Any ideas on how to get this working on posted youtube clips on facebook? I’ve tried the “#t=27s” option and it works well until I post a clip on facebook.

    I didn’t know you could right click and copy like that. I use the YouTube parameters to set the start time.

    Is there a way to have it also STOP/Pause after it plays the section I want to show?

    for embedded videos you can set stop time, for example

    where start and end time are seconds

    Simply go to the below link
    & the generated link can also be shared with your friends or embedded in your website.
    Absolutely no need for calculations & all that. Simple as 1,2,3.
