Will change the way you watch videos forever. Now I wish Netflix would add the Skip Forward.
Many of my apps have those. Never saw the point? Just use the bar to move?
Which app has it that didn't have it before. Keyboard short cuts and swipes always worked on YouTube. And in music and podcasts these functions were there as well as things like amazon video among others
Agreed, I have fumbled to skip the credits in Netflix all the time.
Netflix however gives this option in lock screen when a video is casted or in airplay
This is the one reason I prefer to watch amazon prime videos on their app versus iTunes and having to catch the dot on a bar and slide.
Is this a new feature in iOS 11 now?
If so, here I come iTunes! LOL!
Because it's difficult to get fine control. These are good to quickly skip past intros or back if you miss a line of dialogue.
And with your finger over the bar with the dot you can't see how far you are going back or forward.
With the 10/15 sec back or forward you can be much more precise.
Love this feature as I watch a lot of videos on my iPad 12.9 and Amazon Prime video app.
Lol you'll be happy to know that Netflix is rolling out a new format that includes skipping forward and back!
Now if they would just use the star system (or facsimile) instead of just the thumb up or down I'd be happy.
The Fastforward should be +30 and the Rewind -15 for even finer control.
It'd be better if they just let you customize it like the YouTube app does.
Don't get me wrong, I certainly see the benefit in these buttons, but you may have been missing a great feature of the scrubber. After putting your finger on the dot, pull down. The further down you go, the finer your left-right control is. It also means you can see the dot.
Oh, I didn't know that. Just tried it and that IS better. THANKS!
Still like the other feature better though of just tapping anywhere on the screen and going back or forward with as many taps as I need.
Scrubbing gets tough while in a moving vehicle, even the finer controls become useless at that time
Keep your eyes on the road!
When the video length is long the bar is not easy to scrub. 3 hour video trying to quickly scrub back 15 or 30 seconds? Can't be done easily.
I agree, it’s a great feature. Such a simple change makes a massive improvement in usability.
Skip ahead/back... seems like this was an option in Apple's Podcasts app back in what... 2012?
I used to have a VCR that had a skip-ahead button to FF past commercials.
I just wish they'd add thumbnail previews while scrubbing like almost 90% of video apps out there these days.
But I agree, skip forward and back buttons are a great addition.
