Improved ‘seek’ feature while watching YouTube videos

Posted by on Jul 7, 2009 in Change Log | 7 comments

YouTube WorldTV SeekWorldTV users love YouTube and indeed a high proportion of the videos on WorldTV hail from the world’s largest video site. WorldTV was one of the very first sites to build around the YouTube platform, and we recently completed a major re-engineering of WorldTV to use the latest YouTube technologies.

What this means is greater reliability moving forward for watching and playlisting YouTube videos and new features that take advantage of some of the great initiatives coming down the pipe from YouTube.

The first of these new features is natural seeking within YouTube videos as you watch them on WorldTV. You may have noticed with many video websites that you have difficulty fast forwarding or moving to a different point in the video. Sometimes you move the slider and it bounces back, sometimes you let it go and it jumps somewhere else. This can be very frustrating and is an unfortunate side-effect of how videos generally work on the Internet.

Well the good news is that starting today on WorldTV you can move the slider around to any point in a YouTube video, even parts of the video that haven’t yet downloaded. It only applies to YouTube videos for now, but hopefully other video sites will support this functionality in future.

We plan to bring you some other cool YouTube features like HD compatibility soon.
