    Hi, does anyone know how to view a youtube vedio from the middle.

    When you using the PC version of Youtube, you should just drag the progress bar wherever you want, but on Google TV, I cann't find out how to do that?

    With the new YouTube app in Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) you can only use the fast forward and rewind buttons to move the time scrubber on the videos. I'm not sure if that's also the case with the YouTube Leanback experience through Chrome. I still use the "Formatted for PC" version of the YouTube website. This allows me to use the time scrubber directly with the Optical Finger Sensor (OFS).

    To use the "Formatted for PC" version.
    1. Reboot Google TV by pressing [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del]
    2. Open Chrome
    3. GTV Menu > Settings > Clear saved browser date
    4. Go to http://www.youtube.com
    5. Select "No Thanks" in Leanback pop up.
    6. Do not use the YouTube link in the Spotlight app.

    Thank you. Do you have any idea about the unofficial Youtube app - My Youtube Viewer? I think it is compatible with TV now.
