Play videos

When someone adds the first video to the playlist, it will start playing automatically.

Changing the volume does not affect anyone else. But the following controls will affect everyone in the video call:

  • Pause
  • Play
  • Skip
  • Fast forward
  • Rewind
  • Remove
  • Reorder
  • Save playlist

To cut down on noise, everyone is muted by default when a video is playing. To talk to others, press Push to talk underneath the video, and hold until you are finished talking.
