Using basic video player controls

- Here is a quick overview of the player's controls, that will be available for you, when you're watching videos. Now, as mentioned previously, some controls will only be available when certain player types are selected. And again, we can check our player type by going to our name at the the top of the window and selecting profile. I currently have HTML5 player selected, which has access to all the player features. So, we'll leave that as is, and I'll go back to the table of contents for the course I was just watching.

In the bottom left window of the video player is where you'll find the Play/Pause button. - And keep in mind you may have to click twice... - To the right of that, is the 10 Second Rewind button. Which is useful when you want to jump back to review something the author has just said or demonstrated. You can just quickly jump 10 seconds back. If you want to jump forward or back to any part of the video, simply click the Playback Progress Bar.

You can also drag or scrub it left or right. Next, we have the two bookmark buttons. Which I'll cover in their own video shortly. There's the bookmark time code, and the bookmark video. The next control is the volume control. Simply drag it up to increase the volume, or drag it down to decrease the volume. Or drag it all the down to pause it, which will be indicated by this X right here. This volume control is independent of your computer's volume controls.

So, if you have the volume all the way up, and it's still not loud enough for you. Try turning up your computer speakers. Next, we have the speed control button. This feature lets you both increase and decrease the speed of playback. Try increasing the speed if you want to get through the videos more quickly. - What we have right here a header 1, header 2, paragraph text, and a footer right down there. So that's the content I need. Notice I don't really have anything. Well, luckily, if you do have access to the exercise files, I just go to the exercise files... - On the other hand, if you're having trouble comprehending what the instructor is saying, you can slow down the speed of playback too.

Next, we the button to toggle Closed Captioning on or off. - Inside of the Assets folder you'll find that content HTML. (computer clicks) If you don't have access to the Exercise Files you can just type in any text you want. Just try... - And again, Closed Captioning has multiple purposes. First, it allows our members with hearing impairments to be able to follow along with our training.

But Closed Captioning can also be convenient if you're in an environment where you can't listen to audio, or, if you don't have headphones and you don't want to bother people around you. In those cases, simply turn off your computer's volume. Turn on Closed Captioning, and you'll still be able to learn. This gear icon represents the player's settings. Here, you can choose the video quality, if you have a high bandwidth connection. You can stream in HD at 720p, but if you're on a slower connection try switching to one of the two lower settings.

So that the video will load faster. You can also switch between Flash and HTML, right here without having to open the site preferences. There's also a dim-view option. Which will dim the bright background, so you can focus your view to just the video player. The next button here reduces the size of the video player. Which can make it easier to browse the table of contents, while still being able to keep the video in view the entire time.

With this view you also have a much larger view of the transcript. So, you can kind of read along too, as the video plays. - along with your own content. But notice, as I open this up, look, there's actually nose... - Clicking the button again will return the video to a larger size. The next button, pops the player out into its own window. This can be convenient if you have limited screen real estate and want to work along side the movie. You can try reducing the size of the movie, and placing it in the corner, so you can see other windows.

And just close the window if you want to return to using the embedded player. And the last control here is the maximize button. Clicking that expands the movie to fit your entire screen. At that point, the button in the far right corner, becomes the minimize button. But you can click to take the movie back to its default size. Finally, when you reach the end of the movie you're watching, the next movie in the table of contents will automatically start to play. So, if I jump to the end of this movie and click play you'll see the next movie will begin playing right away.

- one area. And that's our next step. Probably one of the most common mistakes people make... - Now the reason the movie plays back to back is because Auto-play is on by default. This allows you to watch the course in its entirety without having to break your learning flow, by scrolling the table of contents to bring up the next movie. Of course, you can turn off Auto-play. And you're also free to jump around the courses as much as you like, clicking and watching the movies in any order you want.

But just be aware, that if you do want to watch movies continuously in order, and Auto-play is on. You don't have to click anything, when one movie ends to go immediately to the next one. You also have controls here, in the upper left, to jump to the previous and next movie. So, that's a quick overview of the Basic Playback Controls.
