    I've updated my Apple TV to the new tvOS.
    I noticed that when I hit the pause button while playing videos in any app and scroll through the video timeline the small thumbnail viewer no longer shows up.
    Really disappointed if they've removed this feature as it's quite useful when trying to find the part of a video one is interested in.
    Have you noticed the same?

    No problems for me on the new OS. I tested using movies in my iTunes library. Thumbnail still exists.

    Maybe reboot and just see if it's a glitch?

    I wasn't referring to Apple apps.
    I saw it's no longer there in some third-party apps where this was showing before the update. Some other apps like YouTube, which hasn't been updated in a long time, still have the thumbnail viewer though. Weird

    I've seen thumbnails go away and also come back, intermittently (not based on updates that I'm aware of), so I suspect it is a bug or maybe connection issue. But yes, always with third party apps.

    Bump: is this still happening for anyone of you? Most apps no longer show thumbnails when scrolling with the playhead.
