Feature suggestion: Support media keys


Recommended Posts

I have been playing with X-Mouse and have configured it to translate the pressing of the media keys on media center keyboards and remotes into the necessary keystrokes to control playback in the sequence editor.

The idea being that I can stand in the yard watching the show as I make final adjustments and tweaks, and by pressing the buttons on my infrared media center remote, to pause, play, rewind, fast-forward, etc. thru the sequence.  Much like you might do while listening to a song in Windows Media Player on a media center PC.

My solution works, more or less, but it could potentially work better if the sequence editor supported this directly.  The same idea could be applied to the show player as well.

Woo-Hoo! :) I'm thrilled to see support for the play/pause and stop keys have been added to the 5.08 beta!  Thanks!

Uh, hate to be greedy, but... Could you have FFWD increase the play speed, RWD slow it, SKIP-NEXT jump maybe 30 seconds or so ahead, and PREV jump 30 seconds back?
