How To Show Only Part of a YouTube Video

Ever see a video on YouTube you wanted to share with a friend or family member, but the video's like 6 minutes long and there's only :30 seconds that are funny/relatable/watchable?  I hate that.  But what can you do?  

Turns out, you can post just the part you want!  And you don't have to be super techy either (I am NOT!).

The 1st way is to click "share" and then you’ll see a tickbox saying “Start at” and a box for inputting the time you want the video start at. You’ll notice if you play the video while this box is open the time will automatically change to match the time of the video.

The 2nd way is really simple. When the video is at the moment you want to share you simply pause it and then right click anywhere on the video. You then select “Copy video URL at current time” and you’ll have a link that’ll start the video at that exact moment. 

The 3rd way involves manually adding the  time at the end of the link. For example, if you want the video to start at 0 minutes and 28 seconds simply add ‘&t=0m28s’ at the end of the link before you share it.

Now that you've read this article, I expect to see short videos on social media!  GO!
