How To Put YouTube Video On WhatsApp Status Without Link:

You have the following methods to share a YouTube video to WhatsApp:

1. Just The LINK

Here are the steps to put a video on WhatsApp status without link posting:

Step 1: Go to YouTube

Firstly, go to the YouTube app and open the video you want to share on WhatsApp status. 

For uploading status, use your mobile device and not your laptop or PC, because, WhatsApp web does not have the feature to post a status. 

Step 2: Tap on the ‘Share’ icon & copy the link

After you open the video, look at it. There you will get an option named, “Share”. Tap the “Share” with an arrow icon and from the option list, hit the > “Copy link” button.

Step 3: After the link put ‘&t=46s’ 

To post the videos in parts, what you have to do is, after copying the link, at the time of pasting, add “&t=___s”. In the blank space, you have to write the timing of the video from where you want to start the next part of the video in status. 

For example, in the first part, you posted the video from the start which is from 01 second. WhatsApp plays the video for only till 30seconds. This means, that in the first part, only 30 seconds will be played. Now in the second part, you have to start after 30 seconds. For this, when you will paste the link for the second part, add “&t=30s”, at the end of the link,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLsTskUUUUUih7_I&t=30s. This will start your video after 30 seconds. Next, what will you do for the third part? You will paste the same link that you copied the first time, but this time add “&t=60s” at the time.

In short, put the time, from where you want to start the video.
