Musicians using the Vidami video looper pedal can now hold down the ‘forward’ button to engage the QuickSearch™ function and stop wherever they’d like by tapping ‘play/pause’.
The Vidami, a hands-free video looper that integrates with YouTube and other online video players, has announced new functionality for a more customized experience.
Musicians can now press and hold the ‘forward’ button for a full second to scroll forward and stop wherever they’d like by tapping the ‘play/pause’ button. This new QuickSearch™ feature will help musicians quickly navigate to any section of a video more easily, helping to further streamline their learning process.
“This new feature is just one more way we hope to make the process of learning to play music online even easier,” said Amy Hayashi-Jones, co-founder and CEO of Vidami. “As more and more musicians are now staying home and honing their playing skills from their living rooms, we are looking for new ways to make the learning process more intuitive. We look forward to continuing that mission and helping more people become music makers.”
Safari Extension Now Available
In addition to the new functionality, Vidami has expanded its compatibility with the release of its new Safari Extension. Users of Safari on macOS 10.13 or later (High Sierra, Mojave or Catalina) can now access the new Safari extension via the “Downloads” page at Vidami.com. This extension offers all the same features as the Vidami Chrome Extension.
