Hello,

Can anyone tell me what the symbol to the left of the brightness control is on the attached image?

It only seems to come up when watching a video. In this example, I was watching YouTube. When I tap the symbol, it doesn't appear to do anything. I can't find any explanation on my Mac or the web and I am insatiably curious

My laptop is a Macbook Pro 2019 16inch running Big Sur. I do not believe I have customised the Touch Bar at all - and when trying to it doesn't appear that you can change what symbols appear when the scrubber is up in any event.

Any help gratefully received!

My icon doesn't look exactly like that, but I'm still on Catalina. It took a few tries but I got mine to activate, it looks like a "scrub bar" for moving through the video that is playing. See attachments.

It does seem like an odd icon for such a purpose.

Hi, thanks for your reply but it was the symbol immediately to the left of the sun symbol on my photo I was talking about.

I get that - I was just pointing out that an icon in the same place with a similar design seems to give that particular function.

It looks similar to the icon of BetterTouchTool


Have you ever installed it in the past?

I have no idea why it would appear only when you're watching videos.
