Start (YouTube) Videos at a certain timestamp. #3565
It would be neat to start a video from a certain timestamp on the page.
Thank you for your time
I'm new to github stuff, so let's see if you even get this, since it's closed. :)
I like how you have the ability to set the start position of a video for Vimeo.
New: Added start/end controls for Video widget (#3565)
What I'd like to be able to do (which I can do with the ProgressAlly plugin) is use a link or button to jump to certain sections of a video (in essence setting the play head at a certain time stamp.)
This is used for allowing people to jump to certain segments they want to see. Think of a long video, say 30 minutes and you want to have 3 parts that people can jump to instead of having to watch the whole video or scrubbing. So, you set up 3 separate text links/buttons that will move the to timestamp selected for each.
34 Minute video of Glass Blowing class:
Here it is actually how it works:
With YouTube, as you can see when a link/button is pressed, all the video has to be is updated to the new time.
Again, this would help us to use longer videos and allow people to easily jump to highlighted sections.
