YouTube URL Tricks

Posted June 19th, 2013 by Panda
  1. Disable Related Videos.
    1. &rel=0

  2. View high quality videos.
    1. &fmt=18 (stereo, 480 x 270 resolution)
    2. &fmt=22 (stereo, 1280 x 720 resolution) for even higher quality.
  3. Embed Higher Quality Videos. While the above trick works for playback, if however you want to embed hig quality videos you need to append
    1. &ap=%2526fmt%3D18
    2. &ap=%2526fmt%3D22
  4. Start video at specific time.
    1. #t=03m22s (#t=XXmYYs for XX mins and YY seconds) to the end of the URL.
  5. Hide the search box. The search box appears when you hover over an embedded video.
    1. &showsearch=0 to the embed url.
  6. Embed only a part of Video
    1. &start=30 (to skip first 30s of the video)
  7. Autoplay an embedded video.
    1. &autoplay=1
  8. Loop an embedded video
    1. &loop=1
  9. Bypass Youtube Regional Filtering. Some videos are only available in certain parts of the world. Goggle uses your IP Address to determine your current location, then allows or denies access to the video.
    1. Change the url from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<somecode> to http://www.youtube.com/v/<somecode>
