Summary:

Want to learn how to fast forward (at different speeds), slow, and control YouTube videos? A quick set of shortcuts.


Details:

Here is how to Fast Forward and otherwise control your YouTube videos:

  • Fast forward – hit the right arrow once (5 second jump, repeat if necessary)
  • Faster forward – to jump ahead 10 seconds, hit the L key
  • Fastest forward – hold the right arrow button down
  • Go to the 10% mark – hit the 1 key. Go to the 20 mark by hitting the 2 key
  • Pause/play – the space bar, which is a toggle key (to stop then start)
    • Alternatively, click on video
  • Make the whole video go 2 times as fast in speed up mode:
    • Click the “Settings” wheel, which is the 3rd item from the right in the lower right
      • Change speed from normal to 2x or whatever other option you want

You can probably figure out the rest, but for completeness, I have put a bunch of it here.

Here is how to Rewind your YouTube videos:

  • Rewind – hit the left arrow once (5 second jump, repeat if necessary)
  • Faster rewind – hit the J key
  • Fastest rewind – hold the right arrow button down
  • Go to the 10% mark – hit the 1 key. Go to the 20 mark by hitting the 2 key
  • Pause/play – the space bar, which is a toggle key (to stop then start)
  • Make the whole video go 50% of the speed:
    • Click the “Settings” wheel, which is the 3rd item from the right in the lower right
      • Change speed from normal to 0.5 or whatever other option you want

Shouldn’t someone have taught you that earlier?

This article changed the way I use Youtube, especially the numbers being percents and the seconds fast forward time integrals exactly, I never noticed the difference between the right key and using L or J, Now I know one is 5 seconds or 10. So thanks for your time and insight to make this!
