A while back, I posted a Data Driven Daily Tip on How To Hyperlink Directly To A Timestamp On A YouTube Video. It garnered solid feedback as one of my more "practical" and "useful" tips for anyone, regardless of role, probably because it crosses over outside of business, and into the mainstream of "anyone who ever wants to share a particular part of a YouTube video."

But one of the pieces of feedback I received was "I think an even greater tip would be explaining how to embed your youtube video in a website, and then, create a (text) timestamp on your website, when a user clicks on that timestamp on the webpage, the video skips to that time in the embedded video" - so here is my version of that.


Thanks for reading, watching and listening, and have a great day!
