We all know that we can embed a start time in a YouTube video URL (by adding something like &t=1m45s to the end).

But is there a way to embed both start and stop time? Like linking only a part of the video...

There is such option now, but it is not always possible to use it. According to this post:… – Sebastian Piskorski Jan 25 at 15:30

Apparently, no. According to the official YouTube Embedded Player Parameters page, only start time is possible.

There is now an "end" parameter, though I've not yet seen a functional demo. – Bruno Bronosky Jul 31 '12 at 20:41

Using the information provided above - here's an example of a video with start/stop times the numbers correspond to the number of seconds, and you can remove either start or end term if you wish

this one worked for me – Magne Jan 22 '14 at 10:17 works for me!

as Richard Bronosky said: Switch to Version 3

Can you elaborate on this? The solution may not be obvious to everyone. – Al E. Sep 18 '12 at 19:11
as @Richard Bronosky pointed out, you'd need to switch to the AS3 player to make it happen, you can do that by specifying the version param in the url – mightyuhu Sep 24 '12 at 15:06
My attempt fails,‌​. I hear only audio. – Val Jan 15 '14 at 12:49
Read somewhere that audio only happens if players has 'Enable hardware acceleration' turned-on. You may find it useful to disable this. Right click on player bottom control bar to menu. Select 'Settings'. This displays a pop-up dialog for 'Adobe Flash Player Settings'. Select the 'Display' icon and deselect the 'Enable Hardware acceleration'. Hope it works. – GuruM Feb 17 '14 at 7:18

Fyi - the above suggestion worked for me but if you are inserting the video in a Prezi that does not work.

Example url starts at 54secs and ends at 147secs works in browser, but not inserted in prezi
