I want to give out a link to a YouTube video have it start the playback at a specific time in the clip, e.g., 2 minutes and 45 seconds.

Is that possible?

To specify a point, append a tag to the end of your video link with the following syntax: #t=1m45s (you can change the numbers before the "m" and "s" to edit the minutes and seconds, respectively.

Here's an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bibCui3lFM#t=1m45s
