Bug Description

In the youtube webapps sound menu integration, the pause button can be used to successfully pause and unpause the video, but the forward and back buttons do not do anything even though they are available.

I would expect that they should either be greyed out if not implemented, or better yet, do something like skip to the beginning/end of the video, or possibly have a similar function to the arrow keys in a video (skip forward/back a ways)

This happens only when viewing videos through the <video> tag (, flash videos are unaffected.
