Spring Tech Tip 1: Set Custom Start and End Times on YouTube Videos

If you use YouTube video clips in your class, then you know how annoying it can be to start and stop at the right places in the video clip. No need to mess with that any longer! Spring Tech Tip 1 is all about how to set custom start and end times on YouTube videos! It couldn't be any easier, so click through to read how.
Have you ever come across a Youtube video that is really, really long, but there's a three or four minute segment that would be perfect for your class? Remember when YouTube had the feature in drop down that allowed you to start and end at a certain point?
Well, they took that one away. 

If you use YouTube video clips in your class, then you know how annoying it can be to start and stop at the right places in the video clip. No need to mess with that any longer!

But you had to add up the time that you wanted to start and end in seconds (which is annoying for the mathematically challenged like yours truly), and YouTube changed the code a couple of times, and I found all of that really frustrating.

So I began just opening up a YouTube clip for class and advancing to the place where I wanted to start, but sometimes, I would forget to stop in the right place. All teachers know what a problem that can be, especially when you're trying to avoid a certain image or a certain word.

That's why I was particularly thrilled to discover a website that creates a link that takes you to your very own custom "snipped" YouTube video. 

I'm sure I'm behind the times on this one, but if I am, I'm sure this would help others, too, right?
