Info Bleg

How DOES one embed a You Tube video cued up to a certain time?

Does anyone have any anime recommendations this season?

What Pad /Tablet would you recommend for non-gaming applications?

What is a frn and when is it invalid

1 1)  Paste the embed code as normal.  Note the area where the code gives the video link, which will be something like src=""  Right before the end quote mark, type "?start="

Now, for the next part, go back to the video you want to embed.  Set the timeline slider to where you want the video to start, i.e. 2:03.  Once it's all loaded and settled, go to the time display in the lower left of the video area, where it will now say "2:03 / 4:45" or whatever.  Highlight the left side, the time start you want, i.e. 2:03.  Right-click/context-click the highlighted area, left click "Copy the video url at the current time"  You can also *just* right click the time signature and get the same context menu, I think.  Past the url you just copied somewhere.  It will end with a number, like "43" or "128".  Type or copy/paste that number after the "=" above.  Don't change anything else.  Now, when you hit play, the video will start at the point you designated.

2)  Not this season, no.

3)  I'm trying to get away from Android, without much luck.  Just now starting to experiment with running Android apps on Win10, so I don't want to tell someone to do that.  I like Asus brand anything; always had good luck with Asus.  Get at least 3MB of RAM no matter what.  DO NOT get less than 2 if you have to compromise.  Make sure it takes microsd cards for memory expansion, and if possible look at reviews to see if people have trouble getting the microsd to work properly with the tablet.  This is surprisingly not unusual.  Other than that, it doesn't matter, really.

4)  frn is the Fuel Rewards Network and if it's invalid you need a new Shell card.

2 Alas, with, you can embed, or you can have a start time, but not both.

Ben, in the share panel under a youtube video, there is a checkbox to include the start time, so that's easier than what you said.

3 I'm quite enjoying Gamers (because it has very little to do with gamers), and New Game S2. The Tsurezure no Children is very nice too, even if they left some better couples outside of the animation.

4 A Galaxy Tab A would probably be decent for anything non-gaming.  I have the first-generation $50 Kindle 7-inch tablet, and it's usable, but the display's fairly low-quality, and it's slow.

5 1. As Ben says, just add ?start=seconds to the video ID when embedding, e.g. start=120 to start at the two minute mark:

2. I love my MediaPad M3, but it's pricey and only justifiable because I use it every single day.  (Still kind of annoyed about my iPad, which I never really used.)

3. This season, I'm really enjoying Made in Abyss.  It doesn't look like they'll get anywhere close to a resolution, though.
4. It's an invalid when it has a broken leg.  Frns have lots of legs so this happens frnquently.

6 Well, I feel dumb now.  I had completely missed that the number was a reference to seconds.  I assumed it was some kind of internal index or something.

7 Oh. OK. Just seconds, not minutes and seconds, Yes that works. Thanks Pixy!

8 Well hell, If I had known that, it could have been very useful....
Is there some better site documentation hidden away somewhere?
