Add step forward/backward feature to QuickTime Player
Authored by: leenoble_uk on Nov 11, '05 08:49:47AM

I've been using almost identical scripts that I wrote myself ages ago. I use three different lengths of skip forward (150, 30 and 10) and two of skip backwards (12, 4). I have these mapped using Salling Clicker to 3, 6 and 9 for forward and 1 and 4 for backwards. They enable me to skip around radio shows I have recorded. The skip lengths I have chosen make it simple to skip 3 minute ad breaks with a quick 3,6 and songs I don't like with a 3 a 6 or two and as many 9's as it takes to reach the end of the track.
It's a lot faster than the description believe me.

I've also used PearScriptKeys to add the same functionality to my numeric keypad in case my phone is not connected only with the numbers reversed because the keypad is upside down compared to the phone.

By not limiting yourself to controlling while QuickTime Player is active you can listen to audio files and skip around them in the background without needing to bring QT to the front.

Also my script determines whether I am using QT or iTunes to listen and skips forward the appropriate amount in the correct application.

So, I said ... well, I can't actually remember exactly what I said. But it was one of the most enormously cruel and frighteningly witty put downs ever.
