I dunno if this is the right place for this, but I can't find a specific forum for this sort of topic. I've been thinking about this for a while now. When I'm watching CR on my laptop (via the web player, of course), in fullscreen mode, I find I often have to go back & rewatch a scene because I just can't read fast enough to keep up with the subs. This isn't the problem, though. The problem is that the slider/control bar disappears way too fast. I have about half a second between when my mouse finishes moving and the bar disappears, This makes it really frustrating for me, as it's really difficult to fine-tune the spot I want when the slider vanishes almost as soon as my mouse stops. Could you tech folx for CR maybe adjust the player so the bar stays visible longer? 5 to 10 seconds might be nice.

Use the arrow keys to go back a few seconds. That is what I do. Just hit the left arrow key to go back 4 or 5 seconds.

I don't use the web player much anymore, but when I did, I seem to remember that clicking on the area you wanted to skip too would still work for about a second after the bar disappears.

For me, clicking that spot immediately after the bar disappears pauses the playback. But the vanishing bar also makes it difficult for me to even find the spot I want. As for the arrow keys, I use that function, too, but often I want to tune my search a bit finer than that.
