What do all of the buttons mean on the YouTube video player?
On the player
- Seek slider: The seek slider is used to fast forward or rewind the video. To use the seek slider, first turn off Virtual cursor then tab to the slider. Use the left/right or up/down arrow keys to fast forward/rewind the video.
- Play/pause: The button text changes based on the status of the video. To replay the video, select the Play or K button after the video stops playing.
- Next: This button allows you to skip to the next video. If you don't have media buttons, you can also skip to the next video using Shift+N.
- Mute/unmute: This button changes depending on whether the video is muted or not muted.
- Volume slider: Use the left/right or up/down arrow keys to increase/decrease volume.
- Time elapsed/total duration: This section shows the total time elapsed over the total duration of the video. It shows you how much of the video has played already and how much there's still left to play.
- CC (Subtitles): If a video has subtitles, you can activate them through the C shortcut. The subtitles will be at the bottom of the video. To turn off subtitles, use the C shortcut again.
- This Settings button opens up a menu that allows you to make the following changes:
- Autoplay: Turn autoplay on or off.
- Annotations: Turn annotations on or off.
- Speed: Choose the speed of the video from normal, sped up, or slowed down.
- Subtitles: Turn subtitles on or off. You can also choose the language of the subtitles here, or choose auto-translation.
- Quality: Choose the pixel quality of the video you're currently watching. The available resolutions depend on how the video was uploaded and your internet speed. We recommend leaving this option on Auto so that the video quality is chosen based on your internet speed.
- Select Theater mode to expand the player. To go back to the original player size, select it again.
- Selecting Full screen maximizes the player to the size of your screen and removes everything outside the player. To exit full-screen mode, select Escape.
- Full screen is also useful if you want to get rid of the extra elements in the HTML page around the player. It will leave just the player on its own.
