A preview player is also available in EditMate WebUI. The player gives users the opportunity to review a video or audio item and evaluate its content. At any time, users are able to switch to full screen mode and back without leaving the Preview Panel or the search result list. In order to make the evaluation of material less cumbersome, users are also granted the option to speed up the video to cover more content. Additionally, users can skip frame-by-frame throughout the entire video.

Please note that the player in the Preview Panel offers similar functions as provided by the player in the Details View. A notable exception is the setting of IN and OUT points for adding events and the use of key board control ( e.g. JKL). All event related functions are reserved for the Details View.
