3 Tricks to Linking a YouTube Video

3 Tricks to Linking a YouTube Video

YouTube is an incredibly popular website. It is a video sharing site which allows the users to not only view and share videos but also upload, rate, and comment on them. Individuals upload most of the videos on this site, but there is also content from cooperating media, including clips from TV shows, music videos, and movie trailers. Big media corporations such as BBC, Hulu, and Vevo offer some of their content on YouTube.

You can share these videos with anyone. You can share their link on your social media profiles. It is possible that the videos are long, so if you want to show someone a part of the video which is only a few seconds long, but the video is several minutes long, then it can be a difficult situation. But you do not have to worry because there is a method which allows you to share a particular section in the video. It is a simple process, and it will save you the trouble of watching the whole video.

Here are some simple tricks which will allow you to create a link for a specific part of a video. It is not a difficult or lengthy process; you can create a link in minutes.

1. The lengthy way of adding time stamp code

In this method, you need to find the URL of a video you want to share. The URL is the link that shows in the address bar of the browser while you are watching the video. The URL is not the link that shows when you click the “share” button. There is a certain format that you need to use to specify the starting time of the video: #t=2m10s. The first part of the of the format #t= is known as the time stamp. The second part shows the time, and it specifies the minutes and seconds. You can add this code to the URL of the video and share it with other people. In this way, people should not have to watch the boring introduction, and they will just watch the relevant part. It will assist in increasing the video’s natural YouTube views.

2. The easy and short method

There is an easy and quick method which allows the shared video to start at a particular time. You can do it by using the sharing options of YouTube videos. First of all, you need to go to the website and look for the video you want to share. The next step is to click on the “share” link. The options will expand, and it will show the choices for how you can share the video. If you look at the bottom of the sharing options, you will see a checkbox marked as “start at.” In this check box you need to put the start time. Once you scroll to the specific time you want the video to start at it will record that time automatically. It is the easiest way of attaching the time stamp to the video you are sharing.

3. If you own the video

If you are the owner of the video and it is hosted on your channel, then you have the option of editing the video and only showing the version with the particular part you want to show. It is a good way to save the time of the viewers and give them only the parts of the video they are interested it. The editing tools of the site may not be the best, but they are capable of cutting off extra minutes and making it small.

Sharing only a particular part of the YouTube videos is an excellent way of increasing the views of your videos. People using the internet do not have a long attention span. They get bored quickly, so if you want to keep them interested you should only share the exciting parts of the videos. Nowadays people prefer to use the YouTube website from their mobile phones and they do not want to sit staring at a video which is minutes long.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
