This was written in 2019; when I looked at this in 2023, Youtube had created a clip function, which allows this to be done much more easily. I have amended the page; I wanted to cut some speeches out of a Youtube Video of Conference, I missed the opportunity to do so for the GMB Congress ’19 report, but I really need to do this for #lab19 . I added some comments on autoplay/lopping in May 2020. I wonder, Does this work? Check overleaf to see …

What I used to do

Get the Embed code, add a ?start=xxx&end=xxx to the generated code, paste it into your host page, ta da!

If using an <iframe> tag, them the parameters are appended to the src parameter generated by youtube.

And autolooping

I tried to make a video auto loop but couldn’t find the runes, maybe it’s a wordpress thing, although I tried to do it withhut the autoplay parameter.

It is recommended that one appends

?autoplay=1&loop=1&playlist=${the youtube code of the video}?

to the src argument in the <iframe> tag.
