I’m late to the game here, but just learned that you can link to a specific part of a YouTube video.

While we always recommend downloading and embedding a video into your presentation to avoid bandwidth and connectivity issues (KeepVid.com is one of my favorite tools to create a local version of a YouTube video), if you absolutely must play from a live link, there’s no reason you can’t start your video exactly where you want to. Here’s how…

Simply append the following to the end of your YouTube link:

“&t=2m5s”

Replace the minute and second markers with whatever you need, and that’s pretty much it.
