Fair is fair – Google Video allows precision pointing

//images.amazon.com/images/P/B00006J029.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

I’m not above a little Google bashing, but this ability of Google Video to enter any clip at a defined point deseves some love. So, if I would like to point you directly to Jesco White’s danced-up version of the Ozark Mountain Daredevil’s “If You Want to Get to Heaven” (and I do) it’s just a matter of appending #XmXXs to the video URL of the Google Video link of the original movie file, or simply adding the seconds if it’s within the first minute, ie: http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=4188363107289074909#47

I agree with Alan, with a bit of imagination, this principle could be hugely useful.
