In addition to coding and writing this blog, I occasionally play guitar. For learning songs, I often use YouTube.
Often there is the need to repeat passages, which can be difficult to do navigating to the same section over and over again.
A trick I’ve used is to change the YouTube URL to navigate to just before the section in question by appending
&t=<time in seconds>s to the URL.
For example, the below link takes us to just before the solo portion of Bon Jovi’s Dead or Alive (sorry):
If I want to repeat the passage I can just hit F5 to refresh the page rather than navigating manually.
s indicates that the number supplied is the offset in seconds. For longer videos, the suffixes
h will translate to offsets of minutes and hours respectively.
