Can you explain me how to make the YouTube tricks work?

I was looking at the article “10 YouTube URL Tricks You Should Know About 10 Youtube URL Tricks You Should Know About 10 Youtube URL Tricks You Should Know About Read More ” and tried to use the various tips, i.e. linking to where the interesting stuff happens, embedding only part of the video, auto play and loop, but could not get any of these tips to work.

I don’t have that much skill with the code, but I tried to enter it in several sections – to no avail. Can someone be specific about how (where exactly in the code) to make this work?
Thanks and I love the site!

    Hi Leslie

    I just checked some of the tricks you have mentioned and can confirm that they work. Haven't checked all of them though. For instance let's take following video

    1. Linking to an interesting part

    say i want to link to a section starting at 3min. 22 sec. In that case, I just need to add #t=03m22s to the end of the video URL like you can see below

    Keep in mind that some of the tricks (incl. the above one) require you to append stuff to the video URL (that is the direct link to the video page on Youtube). Other tricks that are related to embedded videos require appending the relevant code to the video URL in the embed code of the video.
