    I was playing a video on my iPhone 4 via the native YouTube App and I wanted to fast forward the playback.

    So, as I normally do, I held my finger on the timeline above the video, and started to drag the button along but was then presented with the followiing option (which I have never seen before): [​IMG] this a new feature which wasn't listed in the 'updates' in 4.3 as I have never seen this in previous versions? :confused:

    ...hmm - I don't think it did. I never noticed that in 4.2.1 :confused:

    It's true, this has been a feature for quite a while to make skipping easier when listening to/watching long media

    And an excellent feature it is! I travel on the train to work each day so watch a lot of films. The adjustable scrubbing rate is excellent as previously i'd move about 10 minutes each time i tried to do minor adjustments.

    That feature was available for music and podcasts but they just implemented it for videos.... I know this because I always wanted this feature on videos but never had it.

    Interesting my iphone doesnt seem to have it, on a keynote podcast anyway no other videos on the thing. My ipad certainly does though, on the same keynote podcast. Both are 4.2.1 now. I think but i am not sure i had that on e ipad even down at 3.2.2.

    Funny thing is it took me a second to realize where the built in video player is on the iphone, i was looking for the videos app and couldnt find it.

    I've never seen that before for YouTube videos. But then again, I never use that feature even when listening to music.

    The feature has been there for ages. Before there was no helper text to actually explain how buffering through the video worked. The text was there when listening to songs.

    On a side not I thought that said "Kodak Pube"
    Whooopsss :D
