setting start and end times for embedded Youtube videos

Hi fellow Storyliners, I have embedded a Youtube video into a course and but want to start playing the video 57 seconds into it and end at 1:19 seconds.

I've tried a couple of different ways - here is my latest effort to define the start time

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/oiNe5wY1MBk?t=57s" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I can't seem to get this to work. Can anyone give me guidance?

I want to embed as a video instead of using a web object because I want to over lay some text on top of the video.

Hi Nancy

Did some of your code get stripped out when posting.  I have not tried this in storyline, but this was the tutorial I followed when I needed to do it for another project.

Not sure if this works now, just because google seem to change their sites so fast.

Noticed today they no longer alllow embeding googledocs in iframes, which is great because it has broken 90 scorms that I created

Hi Phil, that code was taken directly from the youtube site (right click - copy embed code).  I will try  the code from the site you recommend. I've been looking around and much of what I have found does not seem to work. I guess it is because Google changes their sites so fast - this is really a bit of a problem in my opinion. Makes development  a challenge.

Sorry about your 90 scorms - I feel your pain.
