The new viewer allows you to use shortcut keys to control the player:

How to navigate through a recording

You can navigate through a recording in several different ways. The first is to use the progress bar as we looked at previously. You can also use the left and right arrow keys to achieve the same function.

Next is by click the thumbnails below the player. These are timestamped and will start you where the creator began discussing the slide:

Lastly, by clicking on any timestamped caption, content, note or bookmark you will be taking to the part of the recording that is relevant.
