How to use Watch2gether?
#2

F needs to be replaced ASAP! I can’t use Ctrl+F to find a video on a long playlist!
Edit: or somehow make it work with Ctrl+F.

#3

I can confirm, the forced fullscreen is problematic when doing a search on the page, though a temporary solution is to move your mouse to the top center to hit the x overlay to close full screen without closing the search input.

Thank you both for your feedback! This was indeed an issue. It should be fixed now, keyboard input is ignored when a modifier (CTRL, ALT) is pressed.

#5

Please make it so you have the option to disable the keyboard shortcuts

#6

Thanks for your feedback. What issues do you have with the shortcuts?

#7

Let us disable this! It’s annoying.

#8

Hi there… Do you accidentally trigger the shortcuts somehow?

#9

Yes it’s extremely irritating.
Whenever I click out of the text box to select a new video I almost always end up hitting a letter and doing something annoying.
When I decided to complain I hit n thinking I was back in the text box and I skipped a whole video, given that youtube doesn’t always track progress on a video, and Watch2 doesn’t always sync it anyway, we spent a white trying to figure out where we were again on a 9 hour stream we were watching.
