Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
Just started yesterday, in the YouTube app it's no longer possible to fast forward by holding down either the seek or arrow button. In order to skip through you have to keep pushing the button to advance in 10 second increments. I tried to skip through a 5 hour video and wore out my finger! Having this issue with both my Roku devices.
It's seriously frustrating and a little infuriating. Also I miss the little corgi that would chase the ball on the progress bar when you skipped far ahead.
Google keeps changing the function of their channel. But I can FF if I push the Down button (brings up the progress bar), then push Up and then use the left/right buttons. That worked a few days ago. I'll try it tonight when I get home.

The channel provider controls the features and configuration of their channel on the Roku platform. You'll want to reach out to the channel provider directly for more information about the change in channel experience you have observed. They'll be the best resource to help answer your questions regarding their specific channel.
