Starting and Stoping YouTube videos with custom web address
Sometimes videos are too long. And, you just want to watch a small part. I love TED Talks, but I do not think there is enough time to watch a whole TED Talk in a class.
There are lots of ways you could edit a video... some not exactly respecting the wishes of the person that uploaded the content, and mostly time wasters. But here is a way you can code the web address to give you a player window that just creates a snippet.
You can then use this as a link during a Keynote, Google Slides, or just sending to your students so they can focus on the important part of the video.
Here is a video walk through...
The process described here will create a new window, with a full screen player. It will have a start and end to the video.
First, Go to your video on YouTube… press share.
|The Area shown in blue is the ID of the video.|
Look at the code below. Parts are changed in colors to correspond to what they do.
Black Section: Loads youtube.com in 'Full Screen Video'. (only way this works.)
Blue section = (area between / and the ?) is the ID of the Video.
Time is measured in Seconds. 1:26 = 86 seconds.
Green Section = Start Time.
Red Section = Stop Time.
Here is an example video link below...
And that's it! Fairly simple, and not too painful way to customize the length, and start and end time of a YouTube video.
