How to Use the Video Player

Video Playlist/Player Tutorial

The instructions below walk you through how to navigate the video player and playlists. To view all of the tools, click/press on a video and then pause it. That will allow you to navigate the video player and adjust your settings.

The video player is unique and it allows you to search the transcript from the video. The transcript is not 100% accurate, especially when it comes to names, however, it does a pretty good job overall.

You can even turn closed captioning on and off in the video settings, adjust the playback speed, go the next or previous video in a playlist and so much more.

To play or pause a video you can press directly on the video itself.
