comment Is there any Windows-based media player software that allows you to pause a video, and then un-pause a few seconds earlier?
Thanks. That works simply and elegantly. In case anyone's interested, I'm firing off the SHIFT and LEFT combination for smaller jumps in Windows Media Player which equates to +{LEFT} in the script. The nice side-effect of this is that pressing the space bar a few times enables you to rewind the video further if necessary while touching no other keys. And even if my hands are too dirty to touch the keyboard, I can just use whatever utensil I can find lying around to just prod the space bar :)

The videos I am playing are mostly speech-based (the voice of the chef) played through the speakers. Wouldn't this interfere with the speech recognition of the microphone?

Unfortunately, while you can apparently bind both keys to the same hotkey, it appears that only the play/pause hotkey is fired off

Normally, I use the keyboard. I'll give that suggestion a try

Ideally, because my hands are messy while cooking, I want to minimize keyboard contact hence the reason I would like it to rewind automatically on unpause

So can this be set up to rewind automatically on unpause? While cooking, my hands are usually quite messy so minimizing keyboard contact is a must
