25 Shortcuts for Youtube Player (win/en)  [edit]

minimize Hide all  maximize Show all

Overall, Browser Shortcuts for Youtube seem fairly unstable. Most times they work, sometimes they don't depending on what you click on or navigate to on the Browser Page. By default when starting a video, the focus is on the Player Window, but you may continuously need to re-gain control.
Shortcuts tested on Chrome and Firefox for Windows.
