Space in full screen minimizing the window rather than pauses it. I want to pause in full screen.

As I wrote in reply to David Spector below, maybe the focus is elsewhere. It looks like an issue on Vimeo's side, but you may try clicking on video first before using Space to give video focus.

Space works to start and stop the Vimeo player when it is displayed normally. But when it is full-screen, it does not seem to work. You perhaps forgot to test it full-screen?

Space key works here in full screen too (on Windows, Chrome). Perhaps the focus goes elsewhere?
By the way, I generally don't test shortcuts if they are from official help pages.

Use "Shift" + "+/-" to speed and slow down the video

NVM, sorry, I see now, the space key is the same for both.

Thanks for your list.
