So, there are times when you want to share a segment of a YouTube video with friends for laughs but you want to skip to where the fun starts.
To do this, just append &t=3m14s to the video’s URL and the video will start from the 3:14 mark in the video. The following is an example of disturbed Cosplay fans in an episode of the Phillip DeFranco Show started at the 3:14 mark:
If you have embedded a YouTube video to your site, you can use the start & end parameters in the src URL of the object. However, the values for start and end times need to be converted from seconds (eg 3:14 becomes 194)
The following is an example of the same video (embedded), started at the 3:14 (194) mark and then ended at the 4:41 (281) mark:

Many thanks to the following sites for this information:
- YouTue API Blog – All Good Things Must Come to an end=
- YouTubeTime – Which is a great page where you enter the YouTube URL and the Start Time where you wish the video to start and they will auto-create the URL for you.
So, I was reading through Lifehacker today (as I normally do most days), and I came across an article on Site to Phone – a service that allows you to share links between your browser and your smartphone.
This is installed on your browser either via an Chrome Extension/Internet Explorer Accelerator add-on or a bookmarklet (any browser). To install on your smartphone, you need to navigate your phone’s browser to a provided URL and bookmark it. You are identified via an ID number but if you struggle remembering the number or want slightly better security for your shared bookmarks, you can setup a login/password using an email address.
When you are on a page that you wish to share with your smartphone, click on the bookmarklet, or select the “Send page to phone” item in the context menu (provided via the extension/add-on), and a link to the page is stored as a redirect from the page that your smartphone’s bookmark points to. Simple!
