How to

Con­trol me­dia play­back

Mac Format - - APPLE SKILLS -

1 Play­back con­trols

Ini­tially, the app shows con­trols you need to nav­i­gate menus. When play­ing me­dia, the area be­low the track­pad gains but­tons that jump 10 sec­onds (video and pod­casts), or skim or skip tracks. Tap De­tails for shuf­fle or loop mu­sic con­trols.

2 Fast for­ward and rewind

Al­ter­na­tively, lay a fin­ger on the left or right side of the track­pad and hold it there to start skim­ming video; play­back re­sumes when you lift your fin­ger. Or, tap to pause, then use fast or slow swipes to fine-tune with vari­able ac­cu­racy.

3 Chap­ter se­lec­tion

Swipe down on the track­pad for a de­scrip­tion (on TV) of what’s play­ing, and ac­cess to a chap­ter list, sub­ti­tles and al­ter­na­tive au­dio tracks for video. Swipe up un­til the fo­cus is at the top of the info panel, and once more to close the panel.
