YouTube Player Shortcut Keys
A complete (as far as I can tell) list of the keyboard shortcuts that work with the YouTube video player. A few notes:
– the player has to have focus (to be the last thing you clicked on the page) in order for the shortcuts to work.
– numbers on the numeric pad do not work for jumping through the video.
Do comment if you have other shortcuts. Enjoy!
