Link To A Specific Time In A YouTube Video

You can link to a specific part of a YouTube video, so that upon visiting the URL you are taken directly to that time, three different ways:

Method 1
The first is using the Share button on the video page, which will prompt you with a "Start at" selection. It amends the share URL with the query string needed to start at the specific time.

YouTube Share

Method 2
The second option is adding the query string yourself. If you're using the shortened YouTube share link (youtu.be), you'd add it like either of these URLs (the minutes are optional if you're linking to a time that is less than a minute):

https://youtu.be/WOk4Nyq4sNM?t=0m20s
https://youtu.be/WOk4Nyq4sNM?t=20s

If you're using the full YouTube URL, you would add it like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOk4Nyq4sNM&t=0m20s
Method 3
The third option is adding a fragment identifier to the URL (# sign). It's similar to the query string, though does not appear to work in current versions of Firefox.

It still works with the # sign on Chrome, but does appear to no longer be working with Firefox. I'll update the post with some more information on that. Thanks!

As of 2018 this doesn't work anymore with the # sign, you need to use ? instead. Example: https://youtu.be/a4rK5iqJke8?t=3m27s

The more interesting question is how to play a specific part. From-to. I've seen that, but I don't know it yet.
