Volume, brightness & seek swipe gestures in Emby Mobile apps

Hi, we used to have these but I took them out because users were complaining of constantly accidentally tripping them.

 

We can find a way to bring them back. I think a circular gesture would be a good compromise.

OK, totally understand you don't want to annoy people with gestures they don't want.

Could you have a "Toggle Touch Gestures" option in the mobile app settings?
This could default to being off so people don't trip them accidentally.

I like idea of a circular gesture to control playback position. It would be good if it functioned like a jog wheel for video editing.
Like this,  https://www.amazon.com/Contour-Design-Shuttle-Xpress-Multimedia-Controller/dp/B0001DBEKG
Although it doesn't need to be that accurate, but could allow quick navigation with a faster gesture, then a more slightly more accurate positioning with a slow gesture.

The volume is probably less important to most people because we have easily accessible hardware buttons that can be used.

The most useful gesture for me personally would be brightness control. This is tricky to adjust on my Android phone when I'm holding it horizontally and I've started playback I then need to swipe down from the top a few times to get to the brightness slider. Could a two or three fingered vertical swipe be used for this possibly?

Anyway, just throwing some ideas around. Thanks for your hard work.

Yes that's possible, but a last resort. A circular gesture shouldn't have a problem of being accidentally triggered therefore it can just always be enabled.

Hi

Long time ago, I saw these features, since they disappeared, I'm still waiting them 😕

 

Do you know, when you will purpose their again? Even in option which is disabled by default? 

 

Thank you 

 

Regards

Please refrain from profanity as this is a family friendly environment. Thanks.

People don't hate the feature, just the fact it was to easy to hit by accident.
However they already said it won't come back in the same form to prevent exactly that issue :D

Why not Just crate a config into the Android cliente to enable or disable this feature and set the sensibility/activation area instead of remove such usefull feature?
