I often use my laptop in the kitchen for following along with pre-recorded real-time cooking recipes.
Sometimes the chef in the video gets too far ahead of me and I need to pause the video for a while (sometimes for minutes) to allow myself to catch up.
But at the moment I pause the video, the next step in the recipe is usually already under way.
So when I'm ready for the next step, I need to then rewind, maybe 30 seconds, before restarting the video again.
I often end up doing this little "pause-rewind-unpause" routine many times during a recipe and it gets rather frustrating and the keyboard gets messy and wet because of the cooking stuff on my hands.
Does anyone know of any media playing software (for Windows) that will allow an automatic restart some number of seconds before the pause point whenever a recording is unpaused?
I thought I should make clear that it is important that the rewinding happens automatically as the video is unpaused rather than me needing to make any further keystrokes.
This is because, while cooking, my hands get pretty messy and I want to minimize contact with the keyboard.
The best solution I envisage would be to be able to tap the spacebar (perhaps with my wrist) to pause the video and then press the spacebar again to unpause it about 30 seconds earlier.
