@judy - which browser and operating system are you using? That info might help us figure out what's causing the problem. Thanks!

if you can get the bugs out of the player, I might consider buying a subscription. I will keep checking to see.

Right n

ow the player plays a little of the video and cuts out. Then you can't get it back -- or i can't.

Hi Heinrich,

Welcome to Sonic Junction!  We have recently updated the video player with some new features and unfortunately created a bug:  you can no longer click on the progress bar to back up the video.  Our apologies and we will fix it this week.  

In the mean time, you may want to try some of our new control features:

1. if you type a number on the keyboard .. it will loop back that many seconds

2. you can use the arrow keys to move the video back / ahead

3. typing Q W (loop start) ... and ... O P (loop end) will move the loop end points back and forth

Thanks for visiting and again, our apologies on the issue.
