This does not represent actual state changes in the player, but rather actions the user has taken through the user interface, which may or may not result in actual changes to the player.

These actions can come from either the application's user interface or the Universal Volume Control (UVC) buttons.

FastForward and Rewind actions require the user to tap and hold the SkipNext and SkipPrevious buttons, respectively.
