By default, the Thumbnail Image Seek feature is not enabled. To activate this feature, it is necessary to configure the Brid Player builder accordingly. The activation is done using the setSeekPreviewEnabled method in the builder. The method accepts an integer parameter to determine the activation mode:

bridPlayerBuilder.setSeekPreviewEnabled(1); // For all modes
// or
bridPlayerBuilder.setSeekPreviewEnabled(2); // For fullscreen mode only

When set to 1, the feature is enabled and will be visible in all operational modes of the player.

When set to 2 the thumbnail image preview during seeking will be available exclusively when the player is in fullscreen mode.
