Course 5:   Video Review Tools

As of March 13, 2023, Hudl Academy will be undergoing changes. While this site is under construction, please connect with our tutorials, classes, or YouTube channel for up-to-date information on all Hudl products and workflows.

Lesson 3:   Use a Hudl Remote

  1. Call the shots from a distance. You don’t have to be tied to your computer to control your video — it’s complete possible for you to have the freedom to walk around the room and engage your athletes. We’ll explain how.

  2. Buy a remote from our Hudl Shop. Our new Bluetooth remotes are wireless and incredibly easy to use.

  3. Pair the remote with your computer.

    1. Open your Bluetooth settings.
    2. Pair the remote.
    3. Enjoy more efficient review sessions. 
  4. Control video playback with your remote.

    • Laser — activate the laser pointer
    • Full — enter full-screen mode
    • Prev — skip back to the start of the last clip
    • Next — skip forward to the start of the next clip
    • Rev — skip back 5 seconds
    • Slow — tap while paused to skip .1 seconds or hold for slow motion forward
    • Rew — tap to go back 5 seconds
    • FF — tap to go forward 5 seconds, hold to playback in 2x speed
    • Tag — currently no function
    • Play — pause and play the video
  5. Unpair the remote. If you want to use your remote on a new computer, be sure to unpair it from the old one first — our remotes can only be paired to one at a time.
