Set up start and stop time: Youtube video

How to set up start and stop time for a YouTube Video

Problem: You would like to start and stop at a specific time within a youtube video
Solution: We will modify the url to youtube to start and stop youtube video.

Step 1: Grab video url 


Step 2: Modify video url to start and stop time

-From url above we will remove the following: [watch?] & replace [=]   with [/]

-Here is the end result:https://www.youtube.com/v/GwTXwJg6_VE

Step 3: Add your start and end time, but wait it has to be in seconds;

-I want to start the video at 1:07 and end at 4:19
-Lets convert this to seconds: 
-Next step maybe elementary math: Warning!
-Start time: 1:07 min --> (1 min)*(60 sec) + 7 sec = 67 seconds
-End time: 4:19 min --> (4 min)*(60 sec) + 19 sec = 259 second

Step 4: Modify url

-Take the url from step 2--> https://www.youtube.com/v/GwTXwJg6_VE

at the end you will append [?start=67&end=259]

-The result will be https://www.youtube.com/v/GwTXwJg6_VE?start=67&end=259

Also, if you would like to eliminate the annotation ads add this &iv_load_policy=3


Yay that worked....
