Apple Smart Keyboard Support

The ability to play/pause videos simply by pressing the spacebar, pressing left/right scrubs backwards and forwards. Some examples that show this implementation would be the native iOS video player and the recently updated Netflix app that allows this control while a video is playing :slight_smile:


I concur. This should be easy to implement (devs love that sentence). Would love Smart Keyboard Support. Any statement from firecore?

Would also love the spacebar to play/pause.

These are the controls we’ll have available in 5.8.5.

  • Spacebar = play/pause
  • Arrow left/right = skip a few seconds backward/forward (mirror behavior of UI skip buttons)
  • Command + arrow left/right = chapter skip
  • Arrow up/down = volume
  • Command + arrow up/down = brightness
  • Esc = exit video
