A few weeks ago I made a quick change to DVD Pila! to allow the "space" key to play and pause a video. It took a little trial and error to get things working with the video view I created to setup the HTML5 video element.

Basically once the element loads and the play button is pressed I'm using:

this.$().on("play", function(event) {


to bind the "keyup" event and watch for a space bar. Things work great and it feels good because all other players (except Windows Media Player I think) support pause and play with the space bar.

Then I noticed that I couldn't search from inside a DVD page after watching a video. Not that big a deal, but it is frustrating. I haven't dedicated much time to solving this particular bug, but hopefully I can get to it soon.

Party On!
