    How do I send keys to mplayerc.exe in Video mode?

    guino, got some questions for you.

    For example, if I want to send "Ctrl+7" to mplayerc for it to display the play list, how would I do that? I tried SENDKEY;{^7} but it wouldn't work.

    Also, if I set AutoHide to False, how would I jump to Fullscreen?

    Thanks.

    I don't think you'll be able to send keys to MPC with the current code.. I'd have to add an extra command..

    If Autohide is false, you have to click above the controls to hide them -- it is not possible to hide the controls if the screen is ful size (like the irunner video screen and many current screens), but should work with the Brush metal style skins (control bar).

    Yeah, that's exactly what I'm trying to do. I want to put the video in a small panel and then click a button to jump to fullscreen. It's ok, though. I'll either revert back to autohide or use an external player. BTW, if I use an external player for Video, where do I set the path?

    Heck, I provide support for two players: MPC and the built in player (API based). If you want to use another one, you're on your own... you'd have to add it like an external application then control and manage files solely using the application (whaterver it is)..

    The problem is that I can't easily make a sendkey work with MPC because it handles the keyboard different then most applications... You should be able to reconfigure (in MPC) one of the existing keys for (ROOT/DVD mode etc) to do what you want ... other than that, if you tell me exactly what you want to do, I can try and add support for it.

    Don't worry about the sendkey stuff. I'll figure something out on my own.

    Right now, the only thing I'd like to get done is a RR button command or something that makes the video go fullscreen from a skin.

    I can easily add a command to hide the controls and show the video full screen (for both MPC and the built in player). This could actually be useful for those full-screen control skins specially when not using the audo-hide option -- not a bad idea at all. I'll add that for next release.
