    I didn't even know you could do that until I did some research. It's actually rather easy. You know how you have a link to a youtube video - that has the video ID at the end

    All you have to do is append a little code to get it to start where you want.

    the code is:


    where you replace X and Y with values representing where you want to start the video. Using the link above, if I did:

    That would start the video at 1 minute 30 seconds

    This is the article I read to get this information:
