Meta: Embedding video... how is it done on comments?

Submitted by mejunglechop on February 19th, 2012 at 7:23 PM

I've frozen a thread or two by copying and pasting the embed info from youtube. I'm the worst. Someone please teach me to be a better man.

Edit: Thanks!

At the end of your youtube link, add an '&' and 'start=' however many seconds into the video you want it to start at.

For this video I posted of Burke's finish in the Ohio game, to start at 11:04 into the video (664 seconds) I changed the value for both value and src in the embed code:

value="http://www.youtube.com/v/9SDweePDCfI&start=664"

src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9SDweePDCfI&start=664"

So the final code looked like this:

<object height="315" width="560"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/9SDweePDCfI&start=664" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9SDweePDCfI&start=664" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560"></embed></object>

And, voila!
