The Player is a preview screen in which you can examine Library media, play back your movie project, work on disc menus, and much more. In each window or context in which it is used, the Player exhibits somewhat different controls.
For an introduction to the Player and its basic controls, please see The Library preview. For the use of the Player in trim mode on the timeline, see Clip operations. For information on using the Player with Montage, see The Montage Editor. For the use of the Player in editing disc menus, see Previewing disc menus.
