Chapter 5. The QuickTime Standard Controllers > Playing and Pausing Movies

Playing and Pausing Movies

Although the standard controller’s Play and Pause buttons look different from their QuickTime Player counterparts, the methods of playing and pausing movies are essentially identical in both environments.

To play a movie:

  • Click the Play button, located on the left side of the controller and marked with a triangle (Figure 5.1).

    or

  • Press the spacebar.

    or

  • Double-click the movie image.

    or

  • Hold down the Command key (Mac OS) or the Ctrl key (Windows), and press the right-arrow key.

    When the movie is playing, the Play button is replaced by the Pause button, marked with two vertical bars (Figure 5.2).
