  • Record: Press to start or stop recording video.

  • Play/Pause: Press to play a selected video, or press and hold to play all the videos saved on your Flip. Press while watching a video to pause the video.

  • Up (+) and Down (–): When recording video, press Up to zoom in, or press Down to zoom out. While watching a video, press Up or Down to increase or decrease the playback volume, respectively.
