YouTube Now Supports Deep Linking

Filed as News on October 27, 2008 2:44 am

YouTube have added support for deep linking, which means that you can link to a specific point in a video by adding the timestamp to the link. Like so:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeZxRYXZ154#t=0m39s

By adding #t=0m39s, you’ll send the visitor 0 minutes and 39 seconds into the video. About time huh? (Thanks all who sent this in!)

    It does work. Presumably you need JavaScript enabled, and no weird extensions that might interfere with it. If you fit those criteria, I have no idea why it isn’t working or you. :/
