Can the included web player play a video from a particular time index?

I have a how-to page on my web site (with how-to structured data and video steps).
I have a video clip at each of the steps to illustrate the step. The only problem is that the structured data i am using needs me to have only 1 video on the page, and define each step as a timestamp in that video (ie: step 2 starts at 22 seconds and ends at 44 seconds). This is perfectly ok, as long as I can set the video player to start at 22 seconds, when somebody is interested in viewing step 2.
I am fairly tech savvy, but i’m not sure i could figure out how to use my own player if the included stream player is incapable of this. Anyone have any advice? Thx!

Setting currentTime on the player API seeks to that time (in seconds). See this codepen for an example:

Sorry for the slow reply. You answered my question so thank you! To improve the user experience though, i would like to have a “link” to the correct part of the video in each section. This link would be a thumbnail image representing the correct section (image would show the title of the section AND a play button in the middle of the image), and when clicked it would seek to the correct timestamp and play. I might be asking too much…as i am also not a coder.
