No doubt YouTube is the biggest online video streaming and sharing platform. So, the odds are you might be spending some good time on YouTube. So, how about learning some YouTube shortcuts and hacks to ease the pain of moving mouse now and then and also to save those little time? Let's get started.

THE SHORTCUTS


1. TOGGLE PLAY/PAUSE

"SPACEBAR IS THE PLAY/PAUSE SHORTCUT ON YOUTUBE"

ME: 


Oh wait!! You might have paused/played your video using the space bar, then where is it going? Well, the default function of spacebar is to play/pause a video. But if you have clicked another button then spacebar will function as that button. For instance, if you last disabled the autoplay button then next time you press spacebar you would enable it. 
The correct shortcut to play/pause a video everytime is the key "K". Yes, pressing key 'k' works everytime to play/pause the video. 

2. FORWARD OR REWIND 10 SECONDS

If you got the hang of forwarding or rewinding 10 seconds on your mobile phone, congrats!! You can do that on your PC too. For that, 
A. To rewind 10 seconds press the key "J"
B. To forward 10 seconds press the key "L".

3. JUMP TO A CERTAIN PORTION OF A VIDEO

Every YouTube video is broken into 10 parts, so you can jump to any portion by simply clicking keys from 0 to 9. For example,
- To go to the starting of the video, press the number 0.
- To jump to the interval of a video, press the key 5.
- To jump to the end portion of the video, press the key 9.

4. SEARCH BAR SHORTCUT

Okay, let me keep it short and straight. Press the forward slash-"/" on your keyboard to focus on the searchbar. Thank me later. 

5. SOME MORE

-To turn on/off caption, press the key "C".
-To switch YouTube video view to Trailer mode, Press the key "T".
-To mute the video, press "M".

THE HACKS


1. SAVE TONS OF TIME WATCHING TUTORIALS

Consider it as a hack or not, but this is my most loved one. Little possible it seems to sleep 8 hours in 4 hours but 100% possible it is to watch 12 minutes video in 6 minutes. Yes, changing the speed. Watching a man do A-Z of a tutorial very slowly could be tedious, so try watching the video in 1.5x, 1.75x or if you have the power then 2x. Once you get hang of it, there's no going back. Say me when you find this hack, else where!!
Okay, here's another shortcut that'll help with this:
- To speed up the video, press shift+ >.
- To slow a video down, press shift+<.

2. FILTERING THE SEARCH QUERY

To filter the search result, try using the term "+" or "-". The "+" searches the video that strictly contains the words mentioned. "-" searches the video that does not contain the words mentioned. 

3. YOU MIGHT KNOW THESE. STILL!!

- To loop a video on PC,right click on now playing portion and click loop. 
- To loop on iPhone, create a playlist and play the video from playlist you'll see the loop button on the playlist. 
-To filter search, you can use the filter option at the top left of the search result.
