3) Start a Video Anywhere

Every have something you wanted to share but the part you wanted to show was halfway through the video.

Here’s the hack that attacks that problem.

You can do this in a few ways.

You can type in &t=YmXXs to the end of the URL as in the example below.

If this is the URL:

youtube.com/watch?v=7RWI3-8N_-Y

You can share 90 seconds in using this:

youtube.com/watch?v=7RWI3-8N_-Y&t=1m30s

But the easiets is to pause the video at the time you’d like to share it at, then right-click and choose ‘Copy video URL at current time’.

Cool, no? 😀

2) Make a GIF from a Video

Did you find a GIF-worthy moment? With the move below this hacks a snap.

If below is you URL

youtube.com/watch?v=gy1B3agGNxw

change it to this:

gifyoutube.com/watch?v=gy1B3agGNxw

You’ll be brought to Gifs.com, where you can chop, crop and drop your GIF to social networks with an easy link or download it for safekeeping!

And now my Number One favorite YouTube Life Hack…

1) Download YouTube Videos

To download a copy of a YouTube video there are a couple of URL shortcuts that easily let you do that.

If you URL is this:

youtube.com/watch?v=kFIsoq63lwo

Change it to one of these:

pwnyoutube.com/watch?v=kFIsoq63lwo
kickyoutube.com/watch?v=kFIsoq63lwo

Is that freaking cool or what…

Thanks BWAR! Keep em coming! 😀
