Hi,
I was wondering if it's possible to fast-forward/rewind on Windows Media Player (Win 8) through Global Hotkeys?

Thanks.

I think regarding hotkeys for Windows Media Player hotkeys, you can check it here:

Hi Chris,
Thanks for the links.

I have gone through them, but could not find what I am looking for.
From the default hotkeys of WMP, there is none for "rewinding" audios. There is something for videos, but none for audios.

I am looking for some way to rewind and audio, by say, 10 seconds, through a global hotkey.
Same for fast forwarding.

Any help appreciated.
Thanks.

I think you could use Object Model:

I'm not a fluent Lua user. Maybe you could ask Rob about how to implement this with StrokesPlus.

Yea...this isn't going to be something easily (if at all) automated via S+.

Someone did appear to have created an AHK script, though here: https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/81314-shortcut-to-rewind-windows-media-player-5-sec/

S+ has no code/handling to connecting to COM objects; anything you'd try to do in S+ would be way too complicated...and like I said, probably won't work.

The Windows Media Player Plus! plug-in allows you to configure global hotkeys for a bunch of actions, including fast/forwarding and rewinding:
