Double Tap Left or Right for 10-second Rewind or Fast Forward

Quick Tip: Easy Way to Fast Forward & Rewind in YouTube

My Device: iPhone 6

This tip works on YouTube Videos on Mobile Devices or Touch Screens

To Fast Forward or Rewind:

Method 1 (Original Way):
You can use the scrubber on bottom and slide, but it’s not easy to get to the exact spot.

Method 2 (Easy & 😎):
Double-tap on the screen to the right to Fast Forward and Double-tap on the left

Double tap once: 10 secs
Double tap twice: 20 secs
Keep Tapping as fast as you can: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50…..

When repeatably tapping forward or backwards video will scrub in 10 second increments to the beginning or end of video
