What happens when you click on a embedded YouTube video? Well, if it’s not running, video will start playing, else a click on the video’ll open a YouTube's page, and the video will start playing from begining. Now, YouTube's player is smarter: First, the click on the video pauses it, and opens a YouTube page that continues to play the video seamlessly and adds a parameter #t=.
