Add shortcut to play/stop media (video/audio) preview

Post by cadu » Mon Jan 09, 2017 2:30 am

Hi,

Currently, there is no shortcut to play/stop media (video/audio).

Considering the scenario autoplay setting is off, to play/stop media file through a shortcut would be really handy.

I think one key/shortcut would be enough, since you hit first time to play, and same key again to stop media preview.

Thanks for considering it,
Carlos

Yes, I think the space-bar key should be the play - pause function for video.
Both in browser mode and in View mode.
Many softwares use this short-cut.
Thanks

Well, with the version 0.92 now the space bar is working as a Play/Stop, but only if the preview window is activated, I mean, until I don't click with the mouse on the preview, the space-bar don't works. And if I click again in another part of the program, such as thumbnail, the space-bar don't work any more?
Is it possible to make the space-bar always active for Play/Stop video and audio preview?
Anyway, the space-bar is not used in others functions as short-cut.

Bonne journée
