In the above Example used trickPlayBarVisibilityHint is be default provided By Roku. Roku provided different Progress Bar or We have required to set it custom? Does Anyone know How to Set a Custom Progress bar like the above?

Bump. Any luck? I'd also like help to really mod the progress bar but all I found were the SGDEX theme fields which can modify the look to a limited extent- no fields for adjusting height/ adding a custom current playback time indicator

YouTube uses NDK, most developers do not have access to this.

official customizing of the default player is limited to color and bitmap changes. 

https://developer.roku.com/en-gb/docs/references/scenegraph/media-playback-nodes/video.md

see UI Fileds -> trickplaybar

More can be done if you walk through the video player UI node and find each element, but I don't know if it can be guaranteed that the elements will be consistently be where you find them.  Roku could make a changes that could break at any time with a future update.

You could build a custom video player UI but that would be a very involved project.

Thanks for the reply and confirming my suspicions- spent all of yesterday scouring the docs to no avail. I've already maxed out the customizability with the trickplay/buffering bar field customization it seems :/

Sorry not true ... you can customize it just like the youtube not have it break... its just a matter of selecting the correct fields, observing them and updating the right areas.

 

Ill have something up for you shortly.
