Tried all of your suggestions but still didn`t work in no way on my FF. What`s supposed to happen?

I see everyone else has already mentioned this. I guess I should have read the other comments first. Sorry about that!

Not sure about other browsers, but in order for this to work in Firefox, you need to click in an empty white space before typing the numbers or it will just do the "quick jump forward/backward".

@SmagBoy1: I didn`t need to pause the video, but yeah, your instructions seem clearer.

It`s just that various user configurations don`t work every time (it seems).

Play video
Click outside the video box
Type: 1-9-8-0 (no "enter")
PRESTO!

Very cool! The instructions aren`t clear--or perhaps not for all browsers? Pause the video, click out in some white space, then type (not press) "1980". That works in both Chrome and IE.

Remember to click off the video in a blank area before typing 1980 otherwise it fast forwards/resets the video.

I was surprised to see 1980 written in red letters in the actual video after doing this. Of course it was just a coincidence as I picked a random video from the front page.. youtube.com/watch?v=uoyuXzM059Q

Here`s a tip: If it doesn`t work, try it with a different video. It doesn`t work with all of them.

You don`t need Chrome. I use Firefox. Just play the video and while it is playing type `1980`

Also, typing "1337" on a YouTube video turns all the text of the comments into leetspeak.

All it did for me was forward the video to 3 different times and then back to the beginning again.
Was that it?

Do it to the video for Aniron by Enya and you get EPIC music in the background... Best YT Easter Egg EVER.
