Netflix Movie Player Keyboard Shortcuts

Netflix The Netflix movie player (Silverlight desktop version) has the following keyboard shortcuts:

Space – Toggle Play/Pause
Enter – Toggle Play/Pause
PgUp – Play
PgDn – Pause
F – Full-screen
Esc – Exit full-screen
Shift+Left arrow – Rewind
Shift+Right arrow – Fast Forward
Up arrow – Volume Up
Down arrow – Volume Down
M – Mute toggle

In full-screen mode:

Ctrl+space – Frame forward/backward mode. Ctrl+space pauses the movie and enters key frame mode (aka intra-frame or i-frame mode). The right and left arrow keys then move between key frames.

The following Ctrl+Shift+Alt+* shortcuts (Ctrl+Shift+Option+* in Mac OS X)  toggle information displays on/off when the player is NOT in full-screen mode. The displays will remain on, however, if full-screen mode is activated.

Ctrl+Shift+Alt+M – Menu;  includes loading custom .dfxp sub-title files.
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C – Codes; frame rate plus other (unknown to me) info. Also makes the other overlays green.
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+D – Display A/V Stats on-screen
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+L – Logging window
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+P – Player info
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+R – toggle color Rotation for overlays in Chrome; probably a debugging feature.
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S – current Streaming bit-rate and manual bit-rate selection

While Netflix’ player implements the above keyboard shortcuts; unfortunately, the desktop version doesn’t yet respond to Microsoft Windows Media Center remote control events.  The netflixhotkeys Auto Hot Key (AHK) script can add more shortcuts if needed, however, AHK doesn’t easily handle all of the MCE events either.   If you are, or know, a Netflix developer, native MCE event support would be really cool (sample code).

2010 Winter Olympics Medal Count Per Capita

The top five are Norway, Austria, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland and, without further ado, here are the remaining per capita stats:
