It would be nice to be able to fast forward when using the preview player
Not as of right now. We are certainly going to implement that if we can, however. It's on the roadmap to be investigated to see if it's feasible or not. The intention with the preview player for tracks originally was more or less to verify the track exists and plays. We didn't initially see a need to fast forward, etc since we don't have a way to edit/split the track.
The preview player is 100% HTML5 (non-Flash) now. Fast forwarding is not possible yet, however.
It is something being worked on. I apologize I can't provide an exact ETA.
Any news on an updated preview player?
We are working on that and it should be included in an upcoming update. It's still at least a month or two out, however.
Any thoughts on using an html5 version of the preview player as the likes of Java and Flash are being discontinued due to safety issues.
I understand your player code is safe but the rest of the w,.w.w. is upgrading to more secure coding and it is now time to uninstall flash and java from my pc.
That's a great suggestion!
