how to make video block start at a specific time and not a full block?

3 0 0



I'd like to be able to start a video on my page that uses a youtube URL to start at a certain time. the URL itself already has the start time in its parameters but it doesn't seem to work at the moment. 

I'm also trying to make it look like the image blocks on this page where the text is on one side and the video is on another. 

Are any of these things possible?

To make it start at a certain time, append "#t=XmYs" to the URL, where "X" is the minute and "Y" is the second at which you want to start the video.

So, for example, if you have the following link:

And you want it start at 5m 10s, it will look like this:

Your other request is a bit more complex but definitely possible, you'd need to get in touch with a Shopify dev to help you out or wait for someone around to be kind enough to devote their time to get it done for you. 

If you wish, feel free to reach out to me, I'll be happy to help.

Hi Diego,

I've applied the #t=XmYs trick when insert a video block inside theme customisation :

But this is not translated (aka left out) in the rendering to its respective iframe.../embed/... url.

Any way this can be overcome in the theming layer ?
Theming layer does not allow the .../embed/... url syntax
