Foot pedal in Real Player or Quick Time or VLC?

Say, how do we set up a Phillips foot pedal to activate, start and stop the controls in any of the above programs?

It seems you'll need Pedalware http://www.altoedge.com/pedalware/

Also see http://www.altoedge.com/pedalware/faq.html

The manual is bundled into the help file.  That may get you started.

----------------------------

Now there is this http://www.lotsoft.org/view/pcdictate-com/vlc-media-player-foot-pedal-utility/ for VLC but I would treat this very cautiously and if you were to run do it on a machine that is not valuable and has been totally backed up.  I can't vouch for the authenticity of that site or their software.  Consider yourself warned if you download that VLC file.

By default without software it presses "record" or "answer" buttons as USB multimedia keyboard.
Once you have software installed you can re-assign all 4 buttons.
