    Please dont do this.

    I know how to embed media if I want to, but I dont always want to because it doesnt always work properly - it strips off the '&t=##s' which starts a video part way through.

    That in itself is a poor show, but I ought to be able to deal with it by just putting in the URL without tagging it.

    But no - what happens is it gets automatically tagged and the '&t=##s' gets removed.....

    I agree that the loss of the t - start time variable is unfortunate. This will be addressed in a forthcoming update.

    Does this work, i.e. no preview/embed and start the video at 15 seconds?

    It's just you can't click it. :(
