Fast Forward/Rewind In Playback


I would LOVE to see playback speed options.
Even more would be just a skip forward and skip back button. In a number of audio apps I have I have seen this and then in the settings you can define how many seconds forward and back the buttons will go. I usually have like 30 sec forward but 10 sec back…

Those two might be the easier options but improved scrubbing controls would be almost as good.


skipping 10 sec is not ideal. a lot can happen in 10 sec, a car zips by in 4 sec or less, then you’ll miss the car or maybe two cars already. i think the scrubbing feature is better where you use your finger to scroll thru the video and it updates as you scroll.

Also, a 4x 8x and 16x, with maybe a rewind of 4x 8x would be good. I view my dash cam at 8x and it’s very doable. I like to have this feature pretty soon. It is very hard to watch every second when you want to know who stole your mail/package or when did postman dropped off your package.

I honestly am not too excited about this feature. Every expensive video software has this “feature” but is highly prone to skipping over the few frames you are really looking for.

Far more useful is having a graph on the Playback timeline of volume of motion/sound at each point of the movie. Skip straight to where the action is.

I wish Wyze will have a video player for PC that I can play the videos on the SD card with two features (1) I can forward 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, … (2) automatically forward the video until there is motion in the video.


Awesome. I have been looking for thjs function in playback. I have my camera on all the time. The flag triggers the camera and we receive alot notitications. I cannot just sit there and watch the playback. Wish they have this function asap


This is one of my top 3 highest priority features. We use a Wyze cam to watch our dogs at home, and it would make it so much easier to find exactly when one of them made a mess to determine who it was. (Or just to quickly see what they’ve been up to during the day).

This is exactly what I was thinking when I used playback function for first time. Maybe, the option to see a graph when sound or motion (in a range selection available) is detected could be the best solution for this. Even something what you could try to make, is a log with all motions and sounds detections in a .txt, that could be very helpful.


Or even the ability to download footage to an iPhone and use the iPhones scrubbing feature.


This is my #1 request from Wyze. Scrolling thru a video to see the other 20 seconds of a motion detection event is tedious as is. 2x, 4x, 10x speed increases would help a ton.


This is a widely requested item for playback. If you have not done so vote for this feature here:
