Video playback is one of the most important features on TV. It's important that video players in apps across Android TV behave the same. Here are the recommendations on how video player controls should work on Android TV.
|Center||Play or Pause|
|Right single press||Forward +N seconds|
|Left single press||Rewind -N seconds|
|Press and hold right||Scrubbing forward|
|Press and hold left||Scrubbing rewind|
|Up or Down||Peek information (progress, name, etc...)|
Play or Pause
While a video or audio is playing, pressing the D-pad center button should immediately pause the media that is playing and, if applicable, show the media playback controls like the progress bar and play/pause button.
Rewind and Fast forward can be controlled either pressing the left or right D-pad buttons when the video is playing or paused. The paying or paused state is maintained when rewinding or fast forwarding.
Pressing D-pad up or down should peek up controls but will not pause the video.Elephants dream © 2006, Blender Foundation / Netherlands Media Art Institute / www.elephantsdream.org
