Hi
This question may be already answered but I couldn't find any posts on it.
Does anyone know how to get the playback controls to show while on youtube.com? I couldn't figure it out how to do this so any help is appreciated.
Thanks

They are all on the video playback window. All you need to do is navigate around to locate them. However, I recommend that you disable quicknav so you can use your arrow keys to fast forward and rewind videos.

Hi,
I cannot find the playback window. I have looked through the whole page when the video is playing and I still can't find where the controls are to rewind, fast-forward, and play . Does anyone know where I can find these controls?
Thanks

There are no rewind controls. When playing a video, make sure you are either using safari or chrome. Once the vid plays, navigate to the play button, and use J to go backwards a few seconds, K to pause/play the video, L to go forward a few seconds. Also use the arrow keys to move in smaller increments and use the up/down arrows to change the volume of the video and M to mute/unmute the video. The arrows/M only work when you are in the playback area of the page, so the play/paus next, mute, etc controls on the youtube page. Also, if not already done, go to
HTTP://youtube.com/html5 and accept the prompts to make this work.
HTH.
