How To Start YouTube Video Playback At Particular Timestamp In Full HD Mode?

Yeah, right click on the video and there is an option to get video URL at current time (for sharing on Facebook), so the video playback will start at that particular timestamp whenever the link is opened.

But, how could you do this in embedded code? It doesn’t work as I use the same URL to replace the one in embedded code.

So, here is the trick on how to start embedded YouTube video playback at particular timestamp and 1080p resolution – enjoy the full HD slow motion video of Prince Rupert’s Drop breaking, starts at 150th second or 2.5th minute:
<iframe width="500" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/xe-f4gokRBs?start=150&vq=hd1080" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



So, the text in red does the magic! The keywords are self-descriptive, where “start” indicates the start time (measurement is in second) and “vq” is short for video quality.
