This is not possible.

It was working like this before Youtube has officially removed the feature.

    if this feature is not supported for the playlist, it doesn't mean a playlist can not be scripted to get this feature to work as before. Just write a javascript to play a number of videos in sequence, to make them a playlist

  • @darius, I'm glad that you've found a workaround for your issue. However, your question appears to be within Youtube's native playlists, not custom automated implementations. And that's how others would probably read it. P.S.: Though if you know of any browser extentions featuring start/end times for such custom playlists, please let me know!
