What is the format for a YouTube URL, to link to a specific time in the video? Something like

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ze68s47-xO4<time code goes here>

There are two ways:

  1. Provide the t variable as query parameter:


    for starting the video at 23s mark.

  2. Provide t value as a URL hash location:


    for starting the video from 127s mark.

When you click "Share", it lets you enter the specific time and generates an URL with the t parameter, containing Xs, XmYs, or XhYmZs, e.g. 2m6s.
