Over the past week, as a YouTube user, you probably noticed that skipping forward or backwards in a video doesn’t work like it should. Typically, when you tap ahead or back in a video on the progress bar, it would jump to that spot. Well, that’s been broken.

YouTube says that a fix is coming and that they will share a note when an update with it rolls out. In the mean time, your best bet for zooming ahead or reversing in a video is to grab the red dot and drag it to where you want it. Yep, that still works, just not the simple tapping.
