Playback Speeds

While viewing your clip, click the "1x" icon on the video player to open different playback rates. By default, the playback will start at 1x or Normal, but adjusting the slider to the right will speed up the playback rate by 0.05x iterations, all the way up to 1.75x. Adjusting the slider to the left will slow down the playback rate by 0.05x iterations, all the way down to 0.25x.

You may also adjust playback speeds by using keyboard shortcuts 🙌  

JKL shortcuts follow standard NLE behavior:

  • (J) to rewind 2x,4x,8x
  • (K) pause/play a video
  • (L) fast forward 2x,4x,8x

A visual signifier of your current speed will be displayed on your video each time you use a shortcut.

💡 Shortcut Pro Tip: Quickly toggle to fullscreen mode with the (f) key. JKL is also available while in fullscreen mode; however, you won’t see the visual signifiers if you switch your playback speed.

Quick File Access:

Switch files within the same folder by clicking Slider Icon at the top middle and then clicking the file to jump into another clip quickly. 



Choose from Approved, In Progress, or Needs Review. Once you select one of these labels, a notification will be sent to all the project users.

If users on the project don't want to receive these notifications, they can turn off email notifications for "Media Status Updated" in their project settings.


Sharing Options:

There are two ways to share clips. Share as a Review gives access to share certain files within a project, allowing for comments without users needing to logging in.

Clip Presence and View History:

Presence displays the users who are currently viewing the asset or who have already viewed it. A green indicator shows who is actively viewing the clip with you. See the last time someone has viewed the asset by hovering over their avatar. Or, click on any avatar to get the full detailed list.


While on the player page, click the Asset Slider to see the other files within that folder without going back to the Project view. When the Asset Slider is closed, hold Cmd + Shift + left/right to navigate between assets.


Q: How come when I open a new video, the playback rate doesn't default to 1x?
A: Whatever playback rate, you exit the video with it set as it will reflect onto the next video you open up as the new default. This is to keep consistency with viewing multiple videos. Reset the speed manually to 1x if you wish to keep the playback speed normal.

Q: Can I view Clip Presence in my shared links?
A: Presence is not available on Review Pages or Presentation Pages. This will only display for account access users in any video player.
