Is It Possible to Add a "Skip 15 Seconds Ahead" Button?

Is it even possible to set a "skip ahead" button on audio or video?

I've been trying to wrap my head around how to do this since there is no variable representing "current playhead position" and there are only cues for Play, Pause and Stop but not Resume (tied to the When statement).

I can only think of having a slider which would allow the user to skip ahead to a point on the timeline but that would also represent a problem where you would need to customize the slider points because every slide is a different length.

What are your thoughts?

By the way, I know that I could use the standard progress bar, but the customer already indicated they don't want all the chrome for that sort of thing.

I don't think there is any supported method of programmatically adjusting the current timeline position. You could do this with video if it was embedded from a site like Vimeo because you can adjust the play position through javascript commands, but this would not work well if you have a bunch of other things timed on your Storyline timeline.
