Youtube Start and Stop Times

I'd really like the create a video activity using a video from YouTube. The video is long though and I want learners to focus on just one part of the video. I could instruct them to "jump to 2 minutes and 18 seconds" but I"d rather use the YouTube start and stop code format. I've looked on the web and I've tried a bunch of diferent formats. This one appears to work if you put it into a browser:

However, no matter what format of the YouTube link that I input into the H5P video activity, the video always starts at the beginning of the video. Is there a way to do what I want to do?

Hi Michael,

I'm afraid not. I have tried this before and it looks like Youtube's API does not push these feature to external players like the Interactive Video.

Thanks for letting me  know. Real bummer. The ability to do this would really make some of my projects flow much better. Oh well. Thanks again.
