Your computer and programs running on your computer are not the only places keyboard shortcuts can be used. Many online services like YouTube also have keyboard shortcuts that can be used. Below is a listing of keys you can use on your keyboard to control YouTube videos.

Note: The YouTube video and window must be active. If these keys are not working, click the video to make sure it is selected. Switching between windows, changing tabs in your browser, or performing other actions like making a comment unselects the video.


Play and pause a video

Press the spacebar or the ‘k‘ key on your keyboard to play and pause a video.

Tip: Holding down either of these keys also plays the video in slow motion.

Jump to start of a video

Pressing the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard will jump to the beginning of a video. The home key also works for jumping to the start of a video.

Jump to the end of a video or go to the next video

Pressing the “end key” on your keyboard will go to the end of the video. If you are playing a playlist, it goes to the next video in the playlist.

Fast forward or rewind

If you want to fast forward or rewind in increments of five seconds, press the left or right “arrow keys. If you need to jump more than five seconds hold down the “Ctrl key” and press the arrow key for the direction you want to jump in ten second increments.
