Default Re: Under-the-hood changes to our video player

There are no new features and only a couple of minor changes in outward appearance (e.g., the full-screen button has moved from the lower toolbar to the upper one). The player should operate pretty much the same as before. If you notice any peculiar behavior, we'd appreciate your bringing it to our attention. Thanks!
A complaint: if I pause the video and then click the "jump back 10 seconds" or the "jump forward 10 seconds" button, the video automatically starts playing again. This is annoying. If I pause the video, I would like to choose when it starts playing again. Often, for example, I pause a video to take a break, and when I return, I want to jump back 20 or 30 seconds, to remind myself of where the conversation was when I left off. (There are other use cases as well.)

Also, in confirming that the forward button has the same new characteristic as the back button, the player itself crashed. Not that this was a huge deal, but it is the first time it has happened to me that I can recall.

Write the latter off as a transient glitch for now (I'll report back if it persists) but I'd appreciate it if the jump buttons could be restored to their old behavior; i.e., that clicking them not cause a paused video to start playing automatically.
