Support press to fast play

Tao Guo requested to merge tao/vlc-android:fastplay into master


This is an initial commit that support press to fast play

When play video, press and hold on screen will set play rate to 4, and reset to 1 when release

The known issues are below:

  • For 4K video, set play rate to 4 may cause frame drop
  • Switch play rate not smooth

Please comment if anyone has good ideas

Motivation and Context

Sometimes, I'd prefer speed up the video playback instead of short seek

How Has This Been Tested?

Tested with android phone.
