Introduction to new seeking options using NSPressureConfiguration and NSHapticFeedbackManager
Users can maximize the use of the MacBook’s force touch trackpad or magic trackpad. I would like to propose an idea which is going to increase the functionality of forward and backward controls during the media playback. Many users have modern computers but the applications are not adapted to that hardware. So we need to adapt to the available modern hardware system. In the case of VLC, we need to integrate the force touch trackpad which will have good UI with improved UX.
The plan is to scrap the current seeking methods and introduce three different modes .
Normal click (NSPRessureBehaviourPrimaryClick)
Increase or decrease the video time by normal click.
Double the seeking time by force clicking on the trackpad.
This will be a feature which will be beneficial for the community, the media will be fast forwarded or it will be speeded by the pressure we apply over the trackpad increases. This will give more stability for seeking the media.
