Scrubbing YT/media with touchpad gestures


When I had a macbook pro with the touchbar, it was convenient to have the media scrubber always exposed while I was listening to something in the background.

Now I'm wondering if there is a way that I can scrub media (ie YouTube playing in a background window / tab) by swipe or click-dragging the touchpad. It would be great if when I do this it also triggers a widget that shows the scrubber while I'm doing it (think similar to the keyboard's volume keys).

Does anybody know how I could achieve this / anything that allows more immediate control of the media scrubber?
