Sharing Videos on DailyMotion

There are many reasons to share an online video, and since DailyMotion hosts so much video content, we will focus on sharing DailyMotion online videos.

DailyMotion visitors find so much interesting video content on that site, they often want to share a whole video (or a particular scene) with a friend. Specifically when they want to share a particular part of a DailyMotion video, there are techniques to make that possible. You can direct other people exactly to the part of the DailyMotion video that you want them to see.

Often a video is several minutes or hours long. While you can always share the entire video, and try to tell someone what part you want them to pay attention to, having to tell the person to go to a particular time of a video makes the sharing process more difficult.

It is a much better experience for everyone when they receive the video you want them to see, and the Daily Motion video starts at the exact time you want.

For the easiest, best way to make a video link with a start time, our DailyMotion video start-time link generator helps you share videos, and works for all major video platforms.
