Swipe gesture for video player to "seek"
This way is more convenient for "seeking" (i.e moving the video back and forth). Almost all video players have this feature.
Currently seeking through the video is next to impossible (we should see the video frame as we seek, plus the overlay that is shown when you tap is distracting)
You can add an option for turning it on or off if you think some people might not like it.
I realized that you previously declined a similar idea because you thought "swiping would interfere with other processes". I keep thinking how you mean that? Because even when we use the "progress bar" to seek, we are still swiping on the window, aren't we? How come then we are not interfering with other processes?
Anyway, if that's not possible, then instead of swiping, you can use the sides of the video player window as "fast-forward/rewind" zones when they are held.
P.S: I meants swiping left and right on the video!
