Viewers To Specific Point in Video

Alright creators, let’s say there’s a highlight in your latest upload you want to showcase to your viewers.  Well, what if it’s not at the start of the video? You could tell viewers to skip ahead to the point you really want them to see, or you could follow this week’s BBTV Tip and send them to a specific point in a video!

Here’s How:

Creating deep links is easy, all you need to do is add a time code to the end of the URL. To do this, simply add #t= and enter the time you want to direct to.

Begin by deciding what time you want your video to start. Look at the time code on YouTube and make a note of it. For this example I want to start a video for viewers at 1 minute and 30 seconds.

You can do this in one of two formats:

  • Separate by minutes and seconds and add #t=1m30s
  • Find the total number of seconds and add #t=90s

The same code can also be used when you are embedding a YouTube video in your web pages. Now when a viewer clicks, the video will play from the exact point you’ve selected. This way you can push highlights and specific clips out to viewers without having to create a separate video, and without asking them to watch through the whole upload or skip ahead themselves!

And remember Creators, if you’re really looking to get the most out of YouTube, VISO Catalyst has been built with tools that significantly cut down on the time you spend uploading and ensures full video optimization to maximize your viewer reach!
