Rewind/fast-forward QuickTime movies via trackpad
Authored by: PancakeMan on Oct 21, '05 08:10:10AM

Also seems to pause it (though that's easily fixed with a hit of the spacebar to resume).

Horizontal for volume doesn't work for me.

BTW, it seems a little strange to me that RW/FF is mapped to vertical movements - I would think they'd make it horizontal, as if you're pushing the playhead further or back on the timeline. And moreover, I would map volume to the vertical axis. Think about it: you say "turn it up," not "turn it further," and "go back a few seconds," not "go down a few seconds."

This is also possible (as I accidently found it to be true the other day, too) with a scroll wheel - which might explain why the two finger trick is virtical - not horizontal. No? :)

QuickTime's supported using a scroll wheel like that for a while - so using the 'vertical' movement for the timeline scrub makes sense, as most mice with scroll wheels only /have/ vertical movement.
