Time is one of the most valuable resources we have, and a webinar fast-forward feature is a great way to save time.

Even though many valuable webinars are available, not all give our time the respect that it deserves. Some webinars cover relevant topics but add “pushy” or “pitchy” sales information. You can easily skip this unwanted content with a fast-forward option. 

This article will shortly and very concisely explain two ways you can fast forward or pause a WebinarJam webinar and skip information that wastes your time.

Fast Forward Pre-Recorded WebinarJam Webinar

When you watch a replay of a webinar on WebinarJam on a replay interface, you can easily fast forward among the timestamps created by the Webinar hosts.

However, there is no ability to fast forward the replay or pause it within the WebinarJam platform itself, which many users find inconvenient. 

Fortunately, WebinarJam easily integrates with 3rd party apps and tools, so there is a perfect solution to this issue.

In this article, we will explain a workaround to fast-forward or pause not only WebinarJam webinars but all pre-recorded webinars available, no matter the platform. 

How Can You Pause Or Fast Forward Webinarjam Replay

To fast forward webinars in WebinarJam, you will have to use a third-party extension like the Video Speed Controller, which is only available for Google Chrome. You can download the extension here

You can speed up, slow down, advance and rewind HTML5 audio and video using shortcuts in Video Speed Controller. HTML5 video has native APIs that speed up the playback of any video, but this function is not always obvious. This extension solves that problem. 

With this extension, you can quickly adjust playback speed and rewind the video.

How To Use WebinarJam Fast Forward Tool

To begin with, install the Video Speed Controller tool. Once you install it, you can look for any page that offers HTML5 video. When you have located that, look for a speed indicator in the top left corner of the video player. 

Hover over the speed indicator, and you will see all the controls you need to accelerate, slow down, or rewind your video (10 seconds + lowers playback speed). 

You can also use your keyboard:

– S – decrease playback speed.

– D – increase playback speed.

– R – reset playback speed.

– Z – rewind video by 10 seconds

– X – advance video by 10 seconds.

– V – show/hide controller.

You may prefer other shortcuts, or you may need to amend the increment value, or you may want the player to remember your preferred playback speed. You can make changes like these on the settings page.


As you can see, it’s easy to fast forward in WebinarJam.

To fast forward webinars in WebinarJam, you simply need to download the third-party extension, Video Speed Controller, which you can download from the Chrome web store.

You can use shortcuts in the extension to speed up, slow down, advance, and rewind both HTML5 audio and video. This extension easily reveals these functions, which are often not obvious to locate.

It also helps you enjoy your video viewing by giving you control over your video’s playback speed. After all, you don’t need to listen to people speaking at the same speed every time.

Sometimes, you just want to hear a few words again, not a whole lecture!
