I'm using KMplayer with this option, but I am looking for alternatives, and it's the only one I know with this feature.

I am not talking about just removing a file from the playlist, but the physical deletion of video being played.

Winamp can (sort of) inherently. Having it as a shortcut is on their wishlist (since at least 2008).

Press the little minus button in the lower-left corner of the playlist (assuming default Bento skin):

Physically remove selected file(s)

If you prefer the Recycle Bin:
Ctrl+P (for Preferences) > General Preferences > Recycle permanently deleted files

Now add the Playlist File Remover plugin, as it supports deleting from disk if you press Next before the song is finished. You can also set a Global Hotkey in Winamp for Next so you could define the hotkey to your liking.

thnaks, but not a keyboard shortcut. – yoshco Jun 29 '11 at 6:30
Did you look at the plugin? You can set it to delete if you press Next before the song is finished and you can set a Global Hotkey for Next. – glenneroo Jun 29 '11 at 12:22
that plugin looks nice and powerful. but i don't like winamp as a video player so i'll keep looking. but you got an answer – yoshco Jul 1 '11 at 8:54
i don't like winamp as a video player either, but it is some answer, though i wouldn't mark it as the answer if it doesn't work for you. – glenneroo Jul 3 '11 at 13:51

Windows Media Player does that with Shift+Delete in the library :)
