Now playing fast forward/rewind

The now playing widget works great, but I would like to add the ability to fast forward/rewind some amount of time in the now playing application, maybe 5 seconds.

Is there a way to do this, presumably with applescript or javascript?

Sure there is!
I’ve got it working, so i will share my AppleScript. This AppleScript will use the NowPlaying widget in the menu bar. But you have to translate it to your own Mac language, mine is Dutch.
(Bedieningspaneel = control centre? Huidig onderdeel = Now Playing? Spoel Terug = Fast rewind?)

This is the one for Fast Rewind:

tell application "System Events"
	tell its application process "Bedieningspaneel"
		tell its menu bar 1
			click its menu bar item "Huidig onderdeel"
		end tell
		tell its window "Bedieningspaneel"
			click its UI element "spoel terug"
		end tell
		tell its menu bar 1
			click its menu bar item "Huidig onderdeel"
		end tell
	end tell
end tell

And this for fast forward:

tell application "System Events"
	tell its application process "Bedieningspaneel"
		tell its menu bar 1
			click its menu bar item "Huidig onderdeel"
		end tell
		tell its window "Bedieningspaneel"
			click its UI element "spoel vooruit"
		end tell
		tell its menu bar 1
			click its menu bar item "Huidig onderdeel"
		end tell
	end tell
end tell

I hope this will also work for you!
