TIP OF THE WEEK Want to share just the good part of a long YouTube
video with friend and spare your pal from having to sit through the
boring stuff at the beginning of the clip? Thanks to YouTube’s Deep
Links feature, you can e-mail a URL that takes the recipient directly
to a specific time within the video.
To send a Deep Link, first copy the YouTube video’s URL into your e-mail message, like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uprjmoSMJ-o.
On the end of the address, add on the time code for the place you want
to start in the clip. For example, if you want to direct your viewer to
the section four minutes and 30 seconds into a clip, type #t=4m30s at
the end of the video’s URL so the whole thing looks like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uprjmoSMJ-o#t=4m30s. When your recipient clicks on the link, the video loads and jumps to the spot you have indicated.
