Web Player Keyboard Shortcuts

  • Updated

Embedding a Resi video or sharing a standalone player link gives your viewers access to a number of playback control features. Web player shortcuts are available when you are either in fullscreen mode or you have clicked on a playback control button without clicking outside of the player (i.e. the player has focus). These shortcuts are also available in a Studio video preview while in fullscreen mode.

Keyboard Shortcut



Default action: play/pause the video.

Alternate action: if a web player button has been previously clicked (i.e. the button has focus), you can then use the spacebar to activate that button as a shortcut. For instance, clicking the skip forward button will allow you to use the spacebar to skip forward until you click on another button).

Seek backward 10 seconds in the player.

Seek forward 10 seconds in the player.


While the video is paused, move forward one frame at a time.

Speed up the video playback rate 0.25x speed and up to 2x.
