I am very familiar with YouTube and the various ways to have a YouTube video start at a specific time. However, none of the YouTube videos I have added to Canvas (via Link To Website URL) will play inside of canvas at the start time. Additionally, any video that has a start time has a grayed out thumbnail (example image attached). These videos, when clicked, enlarge to a medium size inside Canvas (as all vids do) but start at the beginning of the video regardless of the start time in the URL.
I have tried the following formats:
None of these work to start the video at the specified time. And the first two show the video thumbnail as a gray box rather than the first frame of the video. I do not want to embed the videos as iFrames because visually I believe it looks better to have the thumbnail that then expands and starts playing inside of canvas when clicked. But I have not found any way to start the video at the specified time.
***Note - if instead of clicking the thumbnail to play the video inside of Canvas, the user clicks the link to open the link on a new page (YouTube) then it does start playing at the specified time. What I want is for it to play at the specified time within Canvas.
