I know how to set a start and end time for a YouTube video, but is there a way to create a single URL with multiple start and end times, that is, start, stop, restart, stop again?

Specifically, here is what I want to do:

  • For a presentation to my class, I want to embed a URL to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKismo3TuUc.
  • I want to start at 3:02.
  • I want to stop at 5:32.
  • I want to immediately continue at 7:00
  • I want to play all the way to the end.

Specified otherwise, I want to skip from the beginning to 3:00, and then skip from 5:32 to 7:00. Based on another answer (How to share a YouTube video with a specific start and end time?), here is what I have so far:


This automatically stops at 5:32, but then I have to manually find 7:00 and then restart it from there. This actually not a big deal, but I would like to know if I could automate that instruction by embedding it in the URL.
