7 Unpopular YouTube URL Hacks You Should find Handy
If you are interested in learning some interesting hacks to take your streaming experience to a new level, here are some YouTube URL hacks to help you get more out of YouTube.
Link to a Video
You can easily link to a YouTube video by copying its URL. With that, you can easily share the video link with anyone or even add to another website.
On another website, the YouTube video associated with the copied link will start once someone clicks on any part of the YouTube frame enclosing the video. The video starts playing from the beginning.
For example, if you are linking to excel formatting tips video from Everyday Excel channel on YouTube, you only need the link
Link to any part of a Video
Unlike the previous hack, this one lets you show a certain section of a video to people by simply adding a timestamp to the back of the URL. The video will only start playing from the time specified in the timestamp.
To link to a part of a YouTube video, try to add “&t=YmXXs” or “&start=XX” without “” to the end of the video URL. You change Y to the corresponding minutes and XX to seconds into the video. Also, you can convert your timestamp format to seconds only. In such situations, &t=2m30s is &t=150s for a video to start playing at 2 and a half minutes.
Just like this,
Instead of going through this stress, you can just copy the video URL from YouTube at the current time.
Loop a Video Non-Stop
If you are obsessed with a YouTube song and want to listen to it over and over again, you can add a repeater to its URL. You can do this natively on YouTube or just change YouTube in the URL to youtuberepeater.
Scale Through Age Restrictions
If a video is flagged not suitable for your age, you can do this hack to bypass signing in. Simply add NSFW to the beginning of the URL.
Sack YouTube Default Recommendations
YouTube recommendations sometimes are not filled with the content you have subscribed to. To solve this problem, try bookmarking your subscriptions page using “youtube.com/feed/subscriptions” to see the newest videos from channels you follow.
Get Thumbnail of a Video
To get the Thumbnail of a YouTube video, make your URL look like this;
In our own case, this should appear as;
[VideoID] should be replaced with the set of texts after the “v=” at the end of a YouTube video URL.
Make a GIF from a YouTube Video
If you have found a YouTube video that includes a GIF-worthy moment, you can turn them to an animated GIF from that part of the video by putting gif before the YouTube link to look like this.
Change the URL to this:
You'll be taken to gifs.com and you can add a variety of effects and crop the GIF. You can also share the resulting GIF to social networks.
