Using the Video Player

The video player has the usual play/pause and volume controls. You can move forwards and backwards in the video by click-dragging the yellow rectangle beloe the video screen. Notice that the transcript appears to the right. The transcript is searchable, and double-clicking in the transcript moves the video to that part.
