YSK about pressing K instead of the Spacebar on YouTube


While playing a video, or any media, on VLC or Windows Media Player hitting the spacebar is the way to go to pause it immediately. You don’t even think about it, just hit it without looking, and then press it again to resume it. YouTube offers this as well, you can just hit the spacebar to pause a video, but the problem is that you MUST have focus on the video, otherwise it will scroll down instead of stopping it.

But good news, everyone, there is a workaround, instead of hitting the spacebar, you can just hit the letter K and the video will pause/resume without any complication and you don’t even need to have focus on the video.

From any part of the page, just hit K and the video will pause.
