Overview

Add keyboard support to Chrome's native HTML5 video player.

Tired of Chrome's primitive built-in HTML5 video player? This extension adds an extensive list of keyboard controls to improve your viewing experience. The shortcuts are only active on videos with the default controls enabled, so don't worry about them messing up YouTube or other custom video players. To enable controls (and keyboard shortcuts) on videos that don't have them, just right-click the video in question and select "Show controls". Note that this extension is only meant to affect Chrome's native HTML5 video player! ============================== FULL LIST OF SHORTCUTS: -Click: Select video, Play/Pause selected video -Double-Click / F: Toggle fullscreen -Space / K: Play/Pause -Left Arrow / J: Skip back 5 seconds -with Shift: 10 seconds -with Control: 1 second -Right Arrow / L: Skip forward 5 seconds -with Shift: 10 seconds -with Control: 1 second -Comma (,): Skip back 1/60th of a second -Period (.): Skip forward 1/60th of a second -Home / 0: Skip to beginning -End: Skip to end -Numbers 1 - 9: Skip to X% (10%, 20%, 30%, ... 90%) -Up Arrow: Increase volume -Down Arrow: Decrease volume -M: Toggle mute -C: Toggle captions -R: Reload video file -Less Than (<): Slow down video playback -Greater Than (>): Speed up video playback -Question Mark (?): Return to default playback speed ============================== This extension is open source! https://github.com/AjaxGb/Better-Chrome-Native-Video Changelog: -v4.1.5 - Fix native controls stealing keyboard events -v4.1.4 -Fix numpad numbers not working (thanks sauravc) -Update extension to Manifest V3 -v4.1.3 - Fix options page not working with HTML5.1 -v4.1.2 - Improve direct videos' compatibility with other extensions -v4.1.1 - Fixed unwanted wrapping on options page -v4.1 -Default values for options displayed in hover text -Added arrow key skip amounts to options -Added ability to enable shortcuts on videos that do not use the default controls -Disabled by default; see options page -v4.0.4 - Fixed clicks not working on standalone videos -v4.0.3 - Fixed multiline options being squashed -v4.0.2 - Improved visibility of disabled options -v4.0.1 - Fixed delay not working on standalone videos -v4.0 -Added an options menu! -Added a slight (optional) delay to clicks -Prevents double-click briefly play/pausing the video -v3.4 - Added Double-Click to toggle fullscreen -v3.3.1 - Made performance improvements more stable -v3.3 -Added "C" to toggle captions -Major performance improvements -v3.2 -Fixed error when disabling shortcuts on a video -Added auto-focus when shortcuts are re-enabled -v3.1 -Fixed keyboard shortcuts activating unintentionally -For example, Ctrl-F used to fullscreen the active video -Holding Ctrl while skipping left/right changes skip length to 1 second -v3.0 - Added right-click option to disable shortcuts on individual videos -v2.0 -Major behind-the-scenes refactoring -Better prevention of default key events -v1.5 - Fixed some dynamically added videos being ignored -v1.4 - Added "R" to reload video -v1.3 -Bug report "Works as Intended", v1.2 reverted -Videos get focus when fullscreened -Minor bugfixes -v1.2 -Added forward compatibility for when this bug is fixed: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=592245 -v1.1 - Moved to GitHub -v1.0 - Initial release

As another reviewer said, it "just behaves like VLC player", but that's not quite right... Bluetooth audio devices add lag, so for audio-video synchronization it would be great to see VLC's audio delay J (-50ms) and K (+50ms) hotkey features implemented here too. Overall a fantastic little extension :)

For those looking for a solution: At first it didn't work for me. I enabled 'Allow Access to Urls' Option and restarted chrome. Yeh! It worked for me. Give your try.. 👍
