There's A Secret YouTube Button You Never Knew About

You're hip. You're cool.

It's been said you "know where it's at".

You completed Monument Valley while your mates all played Candy Crush. You can't remember the last time you set foot in a high street store. You started subscribing to YouTube channels before your mates had a Netflix account. 

Yet despite making the zeitgeist your lap dog, you still haven't clocked this little trick: YouTube has a 'secret' play/pause button.

As revealed by this rather swear-heavy video from GradeAUnderA, the space-bar to pause method is an unreliable, often irksome method of pausing a video that can result in the screen scrolling down. 

The actual dedicated play/pause button is 'K'. 

Further more, 'J' is a 10 second rewind, and 'L' is a 10 second fast forward. 

And here's ANOTHER trick you might not know about: pressing numbers '1' to '9' allows you to skip through percentages of a video.

So hitting '1' takes you 10 per cent through a video, '2' takes you 20 per cent through, '5' is 50 per cent and so on.

You're welcome.
