Definitely a cool feature. We will do it for sure, although as much as I may want something like this in for Mozfest it won't be :(

Attachment #828655 - Flags: review?(scott)
yay! so not 100% sure from your patch, but should it end up being something like: https://popcorn.webmaker.org/?savedDataUrl=https%3A%2F%2Farchive.org%2Fdetails%2FCOMW_20130726_023000_The_Daily_Show_With_Jon_Stewart%23start%2F460%2Fend%2F490
Well, the debate for the specific queryString param name is open but going with savedDataUrl wouldn't work because it matches an old URL structure. I think initialMedia makes sense or at least it's a very "programmery" name.
ok, cool. we're all ready best I can tell then on this end (a flip and the "dev-only" version goes live, etc.) If you'd like to see it now https://www-tracey.archive.org/stream/COMW_20130726_023000_The_Daily_Show_With_Jon_Stewart/start/460/end/490?tv2=1 and look near the SHARE section for the image and link 8-)
Comment on attachment 828655 [details] [review] https://github.com/mozilla/popcorn.webmaker.org/pull/298 I'm not too picky about the name, but yes, initialMedia is very programmerly. I was thinking on just media, importMedia, src, but in the end decided it's not a big deal from my end. This all looks good to me.
