As I'm sure you're aware, you can right-click on the progress bar of any youtube video in order to get a link to the video that starts at that particular point. Say, for instance, someone says "My name is Michael" and you want to reply with a video of the highly irritating and creepy song "Playground in My Mind" that starts with those exact words, around the 44-second mark. You right-click on the 44-second mark on the progress bar and it gives you a URL that will go straight there.

The problem is that when you try to imbed a video using a late-start url like that, the video you get in the resulting post plays from the beginning, not the point in time you went to all that trouble to key up. Is this a site issue, or am I just an idiot?

Unfortunately, the youtube embedding functionality in most message boards just ignores the time. You can still use a plain ol' link, though.

Thanks, Bux. You are a bastion of coolness. I suppose it was a lot of trouble to go to to make a really lame joke, anyway. Mikey deserves far better.
