How To Skip a YouTube Video Clip and Advance to a Specific Playback Point

youtube-hackNo doubt YouTube is one of the largest and most widely used video sharing platform on this planet. You can find almost any type of video you want on YouTube. However, sometimes there are instances where you want to skip some part of the video.

For instance if the video is too long or you are interested in only a small part in that video. What would you do? Will you wait for the whole video to load and then watch it? What if the video is 10 minutes long and to make the matters worse you are using a slow dial up connection which takes hell to load the whole video.

Luckily, I have just the solution for you and the best part is that you won’t have to install any software on your system, neither do you have to wait for the whole video to launch. By implementing a small snippet at the end of each videos URL you can jump to the next part of the video instantly. Here’s what you have to do;

Simply add #t=NumberOfSeconds at the end of each URL of Youtube and the play back will start automatically. For instance if you want to skip the first 85 seconds (or 1min and 25sec) of the video, simply append #t=85s or #t=1m25s at the end of the URL and hit enter. The video will start loading from the specified time onwards.

This is what your final URL will look like;

Its a wonderful way to save time and bandwidth. Don’t thank me, thank YouTube!
