CS50’s video player, a web app at video.cs50.io that synchronizes instructional videos with screen recordings, is now all the more responsive, particularly when embedded in a course’s website:

  • The “Keyboard” in “Keyboard Shortcuts” has been replaced with an icon to free up horizontal space.
  • A pop-out icon has been added (when the player is embedded) so that students can pop the player out into the full window.
  • “CS50 Video Player” is shortened to “CS50” on the smallest of screens.

In terms of other features and bug fixes:

  • The Escape key will now close the Captions drop-down.
  • A bug was fixed whereby clicking Screen when a video is paused would result in a spinning icon.
  • A bug was fixed whereby, if a student seeked in a video while Screen was enabled, the main video wouldn’t stay synchronized.
