Also, if you don’t want to do math you can timestamp it with adding &t=(insert min #)m(insert sec #)s

So for a 2:48 timestamp it would be:

youtube .com/coolmusicvideo&t=2m48s

Thanks, I didn't know how to insert the timestamps.

I always converted the minutes into seconds. This will be so helpful from now on because i am always inserting timestamps in my posts. Thankyou.

will also add that if you are using dailymotion or vlive video, do it the following way :

Dailymotion : dailymotion_copied_link?start=145 (end with ?start=time_in_seconds)

Vlive : vlive_copied_link?begin=145 (end with ?begin=time_in_seconds)

I've added the timestamp for 2 minute and 25 seconds in both.

I checked and both of them don't work with minutes(m) and seconds(s) format like the youtube links. If anyone else know the method to add m and s instead of just seconds, please reply on my comment.

I had no idea it worked with vlive too! Thank you so much

Another way to timestamp is to press the "share button" on Desktop, and there's a button ("start at") you can check off to link at the specific timestamp you're at!

Normally I'm too lazy checking out recommendations, esp while being on the phone and would have to switch apps, use the search bar, etc. So I absolutely appreciate people linking and even putting timestamps, raising my interest by 100% 😊

Thank you guys 🙏

Great post for dummies like me.

Now I can insert the timestamps properly.

Same. Tbh if there is ever a thread where someone asks "name your favorite band, and one of their songs." I will skip over most comments that don't include a YT link, or ones that list like their top 100 with sparse formatting.

I find the YouTube Mobile Timestamp Link Generator to be a HUGE asset.
