Charles,

I would try working with players in buttons first and make sure you  
get those down pat,  then look at capturing the keystrokes. Maybe  
capture keystrokes to execute the buttons and then look at doing it  
all via scripts at the card level.

Create a bunch of buttons for all of the commands like:

on mouseup
   answer file "Please select a movie-file:"
   if the result is not "cancel" then set the filename of player 1 to it
end mouseup

on mouseup
   start player 1
end mouseup

on mouseup
   stop player 1
end mouseup

on mouseup
   set the paused of player 1 to true
end mouseup

on mouseup
   set the paused of player 1 to false
end mouseup

on mouseup
   put the currenttime of player 1 into field 2
end mouseup

on mouseup
   set the currenttime of player 1 to 0
end mouseup

on mouseup
   set the currenttime of player 1 to 4000
end mouseup

on mouseup
   set the playRate of player 1 to 2 -- 1 is normal, 0.5 is half  
speed, 2 is double speed
end mouseup

on mouseup
   set the playloudness of player 1 to 0 -- mute
end mouseup

on mouseup
   set playloudness of player 1 to 100 -- full
end mouseup

on mouseup
   set playloudness of player 1 to 50 -- half
end mouseup

on mouseup
   if the QTVersion < 3 then answer "Hey bub, you need Quicktime 3.0  
or later."
   if the QTVersion > 4 then answer "Great, you have a version of  
Quicktime that will work great with the app."
end mouseup
