Project Description
WMP Hotkeys is a windows media player plugin that enable users to use VLC player like keyboard shortcuts(e.g SPACE to play/pause) in Windows Media Player.

The following key board shortcuts can be used in Windows Media Player, after installing & enabling this plugin.

KEY ACTION
SPACE BAR play/pause
SHIFT/CTLR + → forward
SHIFT/CTRL + ← reverse
SHIFT + ↑ volume up
SHIFT + ↓ volume down
s stop
n next title
b previous title


KNOWN ISSUES
- If windows media player has focus on its play/pause control, pressing space bar will not work as expected.
This is because windows associate button press action with space key press. This will cause both windows media player as well as this plugin to play/pause the media at the same time, so there will be a race condition and final action might not be as expected.

- If windows media player playlist contains more than one file then CTRL + →/← will not work as expected.
This is because windows media player associate the same key combination for next/previous action. So if playlist contains more than one file then use SHIFT + →/←, instead of CTRL.
