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).
Here's the deal: I have a Hauppauge WinTV PVR 350 TV Card and the software BLOWS. I have to reinstall every few weeks, the support for it is awful on the website and openly hostile over the phone, this thing just sucks.
