We love watching videos on YouTube, and we’re sure many of our readers feel the same. It’s the most popular entertainment portal on the web. People visit YouTube for various reasons — new music releases, movie trailers, gaming videos, to watch their favorite shows on the platform, stand-up comics and much more. It could be that you prefer skipping over the credentials in a music or movie trailer and skip to the fun part, or you want to share the clip starting from a particular point with a friend. It’s completely possible for you to do this on YouTube. So, here is the guide on how to share a YouTube video URL from a specific start –
For Windows/Mac Users
Step1: First, you have to go the YouTube site and subscribe the video channel which you want to share with someone.
Step2: Once you have Subscribed the channel, click on the Share button place below the video to share the video.
Step3: Now, when you click on the Share option, a menu drops down below showing Start At. Then, you have to just enter the starting time of the video in the specified box.
Step4: Next, you have to click on the box Start At to tick the box which will ensure that the video will start from that point when you send it to someone.
Step5: Once you are done selecting and editing the time of the video to start at, you can copy the URL and send it to anyone you like to. Click on the link and you will see that the video will start from that point.
Note: Anyone who clicks the link of the video will see exactly from that time you want them to start at, though if they want to they can rewind themselves.
For Android/iPhone Users
For Android and iPhone users, there’s no such inbuilt feature to create such links. But if you still wish to send a video starting from a specific point, you can simply create a URL and send it to anyone on your own by clicking on the Share option.
Here is an example of how the URL works exactly-
