SWFAddress and YouTube: Deep Linking Into Video

Rostislav has done it again! The creator of SWFAddress just released a simple way of deep linking into video content via YouTube's new JavaScript API and SWFAddress.

Why is this so awesome? Well, with this added functionality you can now create 'chapters' in your content, without having to split up the video file. And with YouTube basically becoming a free streaming media provider with the release of their chromeless video player, the possibilities are endless.

Check out an example of the deep link, which starts the video 21 seconds in.

Rostislav goes into more detail on his blog post about the SWFAddress and YouTube API project, and you can download the sample now from the SWFAddress SVN.
