Control rewind and fast forward with the mouse wheel
I usually use Zoom Player to watch videos because it has one feature in particular that seems rare to find anywhere else, but if people knew about it it wouldn't be! It allows you to use the mouse wheel to rewind and fast forward, and you can push the mouse wheel button to switch from short skip, medium skip, long skip, volume control, etc. The number of seconds skipped for short or medium or long is further controlled by presetting it to whatever the user wants in the settings, and I prefer to have 3 second, 10 second, and 30 second skips. Once you get used to having that feature, I promise, you will never stop using it!
