I watch lots of videos on Youtube so I’ve got some tricks of my own that I would like to share, which might be helpful while using Youtube. There are some tricks that you could do while loading a Youtube video.
Linking to point in video
You can easily create a link to a specific point in a YouTube video. To do this you add the time the video you want to start a link, eg # t = 45s.
E.g. A full link to a video in that case example: http://youtube.com/watch?WvJGfJQgk9kv=#t=45s. These are only the number of seconds, even minutes to add the feed: # t = 1m45s.
Start a video after certain time has elapsed
If you put a video on a website can only agree that a video is a certain time after a certain time. Thus it is useful if for example the first 15 seconds of a video can skip immediately. For embedded players is the possibility to make it start from a certain point. This is done by the embed code “& start = 15″ add to the two URLs.
Upload videos via Mobile
One possibility is to quickly YouTube videos made with a mobile phone to upload the video website. To do this you own a secret email address where you send the video back then automatically appears on YouTube. You find your unique email address on the page: youtube.com / mobile.
Download your own video
Its possible to download the videos you’ve uploaded. You can do this by going to the page (http://youtube.com/my_videos) with the summary of your videos. And you would get an option to download as an MP4 download “for that specific video.
Videos can be opened in a separate popup so you can leave YouTube itself. A quick pop open a video using the right button.
Automatically start videos
An embedded player is when the page is opened automatically. When a visitor opens your website a video will start playing immediately. Just add ‘& autoplay = 1′ to the URLs in the embed code.
Once your video is uploaded you can add some tags to the video to adjust to them more. A list of these tags can be viewed at: http:// google.com/support/youtube/bin/answer.py?Hl=en&answer=146,402 .
Disable Related Videos
In an embedded video at the end automatically related videos shows up in the video. These related videos are easy to disable through an addition to the two URLs in the embed code. To do this add “& rel = 0 ‘to the URL.
Create webcam movies
YouTube offers the ability to direct\make a video directly from the webcam (if you have one of course). It can quickly record a video and publish it online. Just go to on this page: http://youtube.com/my_webcam if you wanna give it a try.
Automatically loop a video again and again!
Videos are embedded on a website normally plays once and stops. By adding “& loop = 1″ in the URL to the video, it automatically repeats.
Shop from Youtube
Recently, even YouTube merchandise. The Google Store (googlestore.com / youtube.asp) you shirts, caps, socks, pens, notebooks and buying bibs that have a YouTube logo.
ps. Youtube is also planning on making money from paid previews for the new movies.
Once you have a YouTube account and videos you have uploaded your own YouTube channel automatically. This is reached by going to YouTube.com / user surfing event to meet then you can design.

Hide Title on the Youtube video
Once a video is embedded, the title of the video is automatically displayed in the top left image. This title is also a code to hide by adding the two URLs in the embed code of a video. Then add “= 0 & show info” to the URLs for the title of one video standard to hide.
As a user of YouTube videos with you own notes. If you have a video of yourself or someone else will embed in the notes is not possible for these notes to show. This add a new code to the two URLs in the embed code. To do this add “& iv_load_policy = 3 ‘to.

Standard if you will post a video on a website has the standard colors. The URLs in the embed code are two color particulars of which 1 is the background color and the other the border color, these are color1 and color2, both come twice. By now own values (0x back) to introduce you the color (HEX-codes) to desire change. For example color2 = 0xb1b1b1 becomes color2 = 0xFF6600 which means amber.
