YouTube allows a start time parameter that, when used in a link, causes the linked video to start at the specified time. For example, in:
the ?t=2m40s should cause the video to begin playing at time 2:40, not time 0:00.
However, this parameter does not work in the HubPages video capsule.
It would be great if it did, and this seems like a simple thing to make work.
Thanks for listening - I hope you do this,
I am with you, Sid. I would like to see that too....
Love that suggestion! I'll bring it up at our next community meeting and attempt to ascertain whether adding this functionality would be relatively easy.
Great! Thanks, Simone. if HubPages does it, my readers will hear Winston Churchill saying, "Never have so many owed so much to so few" 2 minutes and 40 seconds sooner. In these impatient days, that matters.
Good news, SidKemp! We, in a very cursory manner, looked into whether or not it would be feasible for us to enable Hubbers to do this, and it looks like it might be somewhat easy to do.
I have therefore filed a ticket to add the capability. No promises, as there might be unforeseen complications (not to mention higher priority projects holding this back), but hopefully this will be possible relatively soon! It would be great for your readers to be able to jump straight to that famous quote.

In order to add your own video to a hub, do you have to join youtube first, upload your video, then put it in the hub capsule? I wish I could upload my videos like I upload my photos.

I have noticed that videos do not work on my hub pages or other pages that I have viewed. How can I get them to work?

I would love to see an area for text or at least a caption added to the video capsules. In almost all the videos I've posted in my hubs, I've wanted to explain a little bit of this or that about what the reader is...

I've tried both YouTube and Yahoo videos. When I enter either the link or the embed code, everything appears to be working except I cannot see or preview the videos in the capsule. I just get that funky little box with...
