2 ways to trim youtube videos

I found a page that detailed a way to trim a youtube video. Which incidentally reminded me about tubechop. I read over the page that showed me another way to do it. I liked it because it uses the actual youtube video and inserts start and end tags (the end tag didn’t seem to work for me), where-as tubechop actually takes a copy of the youtube video and hosts it on it’s own servers. And frankly, I know nothing about these people and how long they intend to be around. So if you use it, then one day it just might not be there anymore. I have included both methods for you here anyway.

1) watch the instruction video directly from tubechop:

2) And here is the URL hack for the youtube link (I have highlighted the relevant section):

<object width=”425″ height=”344″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/iGpIT2bVZDw&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0″></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/iGpIT2bVZDw&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”425″ height=”344″></embed></object>

<object width=”425″ height=”344″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/iGpIT2bVZDw&start=204&end=228&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0″></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/iGpIT2bVZDw&start=204&end=228&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”425″ height=”344″></embed></object>

This is the above example, note the big gap from the original start position to the new start position:
