I have a nifty keyboard with media controls (play, stop, pause, forward and reverse). Is there any way to use them to control Youtube? That is, so that it pauses when I hit the pause key and moves back and forth between clips on the playlist with the forward and reverse keys?

Most of these media keyboards come together with a program that allows configuration of the media keys.

You could therefore create macros, using for example AutoHotkey, that will click for you on these controls. Then configure the media keys to play these macros.

I was searching for the same thing and found this:


Sounds promissing but I haven't tried it out myself. I want to browse over the code a bit before I install since this isn't from the official Chrome Web Store.
