How many times have you watched the same part of a movie or TV show again because of the inability of the video player to jump to the video moment that you are looking to watch in the first place? Now, you don’t have to go through this again in your life because Hulu has come up with a new scrubber feature that will allow you to jump off to the right time from where you’ve left off watching the TV show/movie.
Hulu has got a new scrubber feature, which is available in most online video players, but some don’t have it, unfortunately. You too have used the feature, but it’s just that you don’t know what it is called. The name of the feature is ‘Scrubber’, and it is a bar that is given at the bottom of the video. This feature allows you to skip a video forward or backward according to your choice.
This feature is clearly visible in the videos that are played on computers and laptops. The feature is available on smartphones, but due to a confined space in smartphones, it becomes hard sometimes to find this feature. So, many times, people end up watching the same part of their favorite movie or show again, which is quite annoying because movies and TV shows are watched for entertainment. Moreover, people don’t have much time to devote to entertainment, so if they are watching the same thing over and over again, then it is extremely annoying.
To fix this problem, Hulu has come up with a new interface, which comprises of the scrubber. This new interface is quite intuitive and user-friendly. You can easily jump off to the right video moment of the TV show or movie that you were watching before you paused/stopped due to some urgent work. Now, you don’t have to watch the part that you’ve already watched again.
To use the scrubber feature on Hulu, you will have to use the latest version of Hulu app, which you can find in the respective app store on your smartphone. Once the app has been downloaded, boot up a video followed by pressing down anywhere on the smartphone’s screen that is not already having any button. After a few seconds, the new scrubber will appear on the screen. If you are using iPhone 7 or newer version, then you will get a haptic feedback that will confirm the working of the scrubber.
You can now easily skip backward and forward by sliding your fingers left and right respectively. You can also get the preview of what’s being shown on the screen. After you select the time from where you want to see the TV show or movie, Hulu will start reloading the video. If you are subscribed to an ad-version of Hulu, then you will see commercials by the time the video gets to the point where you have selected it to be. If using an ad-free version of Hulu app, then the video will start instantly.
