posting youtube video with start & end times

Postby gib » Sat Aug 27, 2016 6:12 pm

Hello mods,

I really like the youtube feature here at ILP. It works great for posting youtube videos, like this one of Jakob:



But let's say I wanted to start and end at specific times. At youtube, I can type in the start and end times in the URL like so:

http://www.youtube.com/v/HC6HVXPNWkA&ve ... =60&end=70

But here at ILP, it fails to embed the video in the [youtube] tags:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/v/HC6HVXPNWkA&version=3&start=60&end=70[/youtube]

I think it would be a HUGE improvement to the site if it enabled start and end times in youtube videos.

Oh, and here would be another improvement: give Turd a limit on how frequently he posts in the Meta forum:

I don't care about income inequality, I care about the idea that there are people who have actual obstacles to success.

...we hear about the wage gap, the idea that women are paid significantly less than men--seventy two cents on the dollar--that's absolute shear nonesense--it is absolute nonesense--in 147 out of 150 of the biggest cities in America, women make 8% more money than men do in their peer group. That wage gap is growing, not shrinking.
-Ben Shapiro

We're in a situation now where students can go to university and come out dumber than when they went in. They are infantalized by safe space and trigger warning culture, the idea that interogating a new idea, coming into contact with a school of thought or a person that doesn't conform to your prejudices is somehow problematic, that it gives rise to trauma.

That song warms my heart, thanks Jakob!

Start and end times might be difficult, but I can look into it. The BBCode pulls parts out of the URL and puts them in an embedding URL. If mapping start and end times onto that is straightforward, I'll make the change.

I'll either make this happen this weekend or tell you that it's beyond my ability.

This is beyond my ability. Not that it's impossible, but making it work breaks the simpler and more common usage of starting and ending at the default positions.
