YouTube gives the option to share a video with a specific start time, something like this:


The above video starts at 53 seconds elapsed.

Is there any way to provide an end time as well, like forming a small clip?

Example: start at 53s and end at 59s.

You can use ?start=<seconds> and ?end=<seconds> to define start and end points, such as:

This only works with the above (embed) style of link (as opposed to the watch page).

Note: the time must be an integer number of seconds (e.g. 119, not 1m59s).
