Scroll wheels and MoviePlayer Apps
[Editor's note: Submitted by Nick Jones on July 5th.]

I had just downloaded a rather large mpg of A Perfect Circle performing on Conan the other night, and was trying to see what brand of drums Josh Freese uses.

I had paused the clip, and accidentally pushed the scroll wheel on my Logitech scrolling mouse forward one "click".

Much to my amazement, the video advanced one frame. This works backwards and forwards and is very smooth and exact on a B&W G3 400/512.

For all you DV editors out there using MoviePlayer for playback, this is an awesome way to simulate a jog wheel on a break out box on the cheap. I haven't checked to see if this works in iMovie as well but I would bet it does...

Thanks for a great site!
