Would be nice if you could see a preview of the clip when you're fast forwarding through the show to skip an OP or something.

By fast forwarding I mean sliding the bar along the play thing to get to a certain point. A lot of the times when I want to skip an OP I have to click several times. I either go too far, or not go far enough.

If there was some kind of preview like youtube, netflix, etc. has, then this wouldn't be an issue.

Would like to see this implemented.

Here's an example from youtube:


As you can see at the bottom, there is a preview of the clip when I mouse over a time.

The current Roku app also has this function (although apparently it will be going away in the HD-capable version that was submitted last week).

I expect this would require a re-write of the player. I assume the thumbnail images are grabbed from the I-frames, but if they are pre-rendered, then changes in the video encoding would also be required.

I believe a new player is still in the works, and may have this feature planned. The last date I heard for that was Q1 2014, but I haven't seen any updates lately.
