Hi Media Fragments,

Read this TechCrunch article:
http://www.techcrunch.com/2008/10/25/youtube-enables-deep-linking-within-videos/

YouTube allows now to send users to a specific point in a video, using 
the hash '#' in the URL. The syntax is: "#t=1m45s" and an example is: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bibCui3lFM#t=1m45s

So it seems the syntax is slightly different that the one used in 
GoogleVideo. Ken, are you involved in this work?
