What do you call sliding or swiping through a video?

Scrubbing through a video
Scrubbing through a video

A lot of words and terms are used to describe the action of sliding your finger or dragging your mouse to move through the frames of a video that is playing on a screen.

You may hear swipe, seek, scroll, scan, slide, drag, pan, drill or glide and the corresponding gerunds swiping, seeking, scrolling, scanning, sliding, dragging, panning, drilling and gliding however the most specific term in the context of video is scrub and scrubbing.

The action of pressing down and then moving one’s finger back and forth while keeping it held down resembles the action of physically scrubbing – as opposed to swiping, which suggests a more exuberant gesture ending with one’s finger off the screen.

Hope this helps.
