Many people spend countless hours going through numerous videos on YouTube every single day. Many individuals also upload content to the site and make thousands, even millions of dollars every year. There is no question that YouTube is one of the best video hosting platforms on the internet. You probably use its site or app at least once a day as well. There are many things that YouTube itself offers to people, and some are provided by third parties to increase user experience. Here are three handy hacks for YouTube viewers:

Instead of sending someone a link to a video and then asking them to skip to a certain point, you can directly make a link to that video at that point and share it. You can quickly create a time link at any place in the video.
Open any video on YouTube using a browser, then request the desktop site. Click on the share button below the title of the video. A window will pop up with a list of options, and you will have to select “Start at:”. Enter the specific time that you want someone to watch the video at. You can also pause the video at the place you wish to and that field will fill automatically.
Tip: the time format will be in hours:minutes:seconds.

That app is very useful in downloading audio files as well. It will seamlessly convert your favorite YouTube video into an mp3 file. You will easily be able to listen to music, audiobooks, speeches, guides, or anything else on YouTube, on the go.
