To fast-forward is to move forward through a recording at speed faster than that at which it would normally be played. The recordings are generally audio, video, or computer data. It is known as “f-forwarding.” On media control symbols, such as buttons and player interfaces, the function is usually represented by two solid arrows pointing to the right, and these typical icons were correctly recognized by 75% of a sample of European consumers. This symbol is represented in Unicode by U+23E9.

To reach a certain part of a song, a person can fast forward in a cassette by pressing a button (often labeled “Fast Forward” itself) on the deck containing the tape. The cassette deck motor activates at a higher than normal speed (for example, doubles the standard playback speed from 1 to 7/8 fps of the 1/8 “cassette) and can be stopped at the end of the tape, by pressing the “Stop” button on the deck (or another button mechanism disengaging the button) or simply by lifting a finger from the “Fast Forward” button.

Fast forwarding is exactly the opposite of rewinding, in which the tape, music, etc., are moved backward at the discretion of the user. In both cases, due to the distortion of the sound, the volume is usually cut or severely reduced.

With the advent of inexpensive digital music media, fast-forwarding has most likely lost its past significance related to the speed of a tape recorder motor (or of a turntable or other device allowing fast-forwarding) and can now, in particular in the form of cassettes and other analog media are less and less used by the younger generations, apply only to the operation of time progression of a recording – accomplished today by simple click, slide of a slide image, or even via voice recognition software. (However, some CD and DVD players offer tape-style fast-forwarding, so the user can detect when the destination is reached and stop.)

Analogue VCRs allow fast-forwarding by simply playing the tape faster. The resulting loss of synchronization of the video was accepted because it was still possible to determine approximately what was going on in the video to find the desired playback point. Modern digital video systems such as DVR and video-on-demand systems use “trick mode” to present an apparently faster stream by displaying only the selected frames.

Unlike analogue video streams where only serial access is possible, digital video allows random media access, which increases the possibility of alternative fast forwarding algorithms and visualizations. In video streaming formats, such as H.264, fast-forward algorithms use I-frames to sample video at faster than normal speed.
