In this work we propose an early prototype of a video browser for mobile devices with touchscreens. We concentrate on utilizing the thumbs because of the natural posture used with the devices when watching videos in landscape mode. The controls are only displayed when the user touches the screen and automatically rearrange themselves depending on the position of the thumbs. A combination of a radial menu and an extended seeker control with hierarchical browsing and bookmarking features enables the user to navigate quickly through videos.
