Netflix and YouTube Keyboard Shortcuts List


Here are the Netflix and some YouTube keyboard shortcuts, darned convenient they are. My mouse sent me a thank you note when I discovered "m" and the spacebar.
  • M = Mute / Unmute (toggle) - Also works on YouTube)
  • Up arrow = Volume Up - Also works on YouTube)
  • Down arrow = Volume Down - Also works on YouTube)
  • Spacebar = Pause / Play (toggle) - Also works on YouTube in certain screen modes)
  • Enter = Pause / Play  (toggle)
    • F = Full-screen (double-clicking the screen also works) - Also works on YouTube)
    • Esc = Exit full-screen (or double-click again) - Also works on YouTube)
    • Left arrow = Rewinds 10 seconds each click (spacebar reinitiates Play) - Also works on YouTube, 5 second increments)
    • Right arrow = Fast Forwards 10 seconds each click (spacebar reinitiates Play) - Also works on YouTube, 5 second increments)
    • Shift+Left arrow = Rewind (keeps going until you hit spacebar)
    • Shift+Right arrow = Fast Forward (keeps going until you hit spacebar)

    If interested, here are Netflix's Twitter, Facebook, G+, and Pinterest accounts. Netflix has over 4.66 million Twitter followers. Their Facebook page has over 42.87 million likes.  Their G+ page (US and Canada) has over 386K followers. Pinterest is apparently still warming at over 36K followers.
    A side note as to the keyboard shortcuts Netflix has defined. I've noticed the keyboard key assignment functions stop working occasionally. I'm guessing this is because I have other Window tabs open. When I go to those tabs, sometimes the website or application there resets the keys back to browser default; or maybe it is the browser itself doing it. Sometimes Netflix will reset the keyboard shortcuts back on when I return, but sometimes they apparently don't. Fortunately I noticed using the mouse once when I return usually resets the keys back to what Netflix wants them to be. Worst case scenario and if worth the bother, simply go back to browse and then back to whatever you were watching; this should reset the key shortcuts functions back on.

    Meanwhile, Netflix has recently announced they now have around 55 million US subscribers and over 118 million global subscribers.

    Netflix continues to serve me well. Amazingly, it also works just fine when using internet DSL; broadband not required. However, be forewarned that a telephone company technician told me such is not the case for everyone. Apparently, it all depends on how close the telephone company substation is to your place of residence.

    As for Netflix's social media followers, I'm sure the count has no doubt increased. As a side note, Google is discontinuing G+ this year.

    As for Netflix keyboard shortcuts, nothing appears to have changed. Here's what Netflix says.
