Percentages would not work well as 5% is much more from 20 minute
recording than 2 hour movie.
But a little related to this, I think it would be great if there could
be some kind of short cut for command that one could use after watching
the recording to cut away end of the recording. So when ending texts
start, one key press would just cut rest away and also stop the viewing.
