Any ideas of a video player that works with hot keys, even when I don't have the player focused? (I just got a two monitor setup, and I want to watch videos on the other monitor while doing other stuff on the primary, some of which won't be easy to change over from). I tried Windows Media Player and VLC, but unless I'm missing something, they appear to only work when I've already clicked on the player window. Basically, I'm looking to be able to do something like Ctrl+Alt+Home to pause and unpause (kind of like Winamp, but I'd rather not use Winamp for video if I don't have to).
I've been having fun with my MacBook for almost a month, and the main software I've used is VLC for video playback - since iTunes or whatever their default media player doesn't support a number of codecs.
