Hey why I can't tap the seek bar to scrub through videos anymore. It's been a couple of days since this happened. It's been bugging me a lot 'cause I'm one those people to use the tap seek bar feature to quickly skip through videos (mainly adds).

 

Can someone tell me what's goin' on???

I can still tap or click on the seek bar on desktop? Unless you mean the mobile app - in that case, there was an update that recently changed how the seek bar works.

Q: Why are you changing the seek bar/progress bar/scrubber experience? / I can’t tap to move the seek bar/progress bar/scrubber for some reason.

We heard that a single tap to move the progress bar caused a lot of frustration with accidental taps. Now you can tap, hold, and slide the progress bar — the red dot will track your movement and once you lift your finger, the video will jump to that point in the video.
