We get it—it can be time-consuming to analyse your UX testing videos. So why not try to do it up to twice as fast?

Speed up playback

To increase playback speed while watching a video, use the following shortcut:  

⇧ +  → 

(Hold down the shift key, and press the right arrow key at the same time.)

This will speed playback up to 1.5x normal speed. Pressing this shortcut again will speed playback up to 2.0x normal speed.

  • Tip: Make sure your mouse is hovering over the video itself to change playback speed

Slow down playback

To decrease playback speed while watching a video, use the following shortcut:  

⇧ +  

(Hold down the shift key, and press the left arrow key at the same time.)

This will slow playback down to 0.5x normal speed. Pressing this shortcut again will slow playback down to 0.25x normal speed.

  • Tip: Make sure your mouse is hovering over the video itself to change playback speed
  • If you have previously sped up your video playback speed, use this shortcut to return to normal speed
