Link to a specific Youtube Warp in your blog and website

http://youtube.com/warp.swf?v=

If you put the alpha numeric part of the video behind the ‘=’ sign, your hyperlink will be enriched with some warp magic. An example: http://youtube.com/warp.swf?v=2v4p4CpPRwI, makes one beautiful warp about warps.

It can be useful if you want to guide your readers or visitors through a video tour on a specific subject. Wanna tell people where it went wrong with Britney Spears?
