Because Flash sucks. Also, there are no exposed methods for timeline control that I know of; the GB Engineers would have to implement them, which is something I can provide the AS3 code for if desired. This all means that this is only good for subscribers!
How do I know you won't steal my password or post cat pictures on my behalf?
You can look at the code in the Chrome extensions folder, I believe. If anyone's interested, I'd be happy to provide a GitHub repository of the code as well.
Perhaps I'm the only one, but sometimes my mind wanders and I miss what was going on (probably thinking about how I can implement this feature in a Chrome extension), so I like to skip back a few seconds and catch up on what just happened. Sometimes I miss the name of the game the dudes are talking about. Sometimes I miss weird little things like the guy disappearing in the Crysis 3 Quick Look. There are a number of reasons, and being able to just hit a button to quickly scrub back and forth through videos just makes them all that much more enjoyable for me!
I know this isn't an API thing, but it's a developer thing, so maybe it goes here? I don't know. Feel free to talk about it elsewhere if you like it!
