    Link to a specific part of a YouTube Video

    It's really helpful to be able to skip to a particular part of a YouTube video without watching the entire thing. You can simply do this by clicking the "share" button below a video and checking off the "start at" button wherever you want the video to begin. You'll notice an attribute will be added to the end of the link that looks something like this: ?t=20m12s (in our case, this was added because we wanted to display 20 minutes and 12 seconds into the video).
