If I'm not mistaken, you're describing the standard method of assigning the space bar to the pause function. If I do this (and there are no keys assigned to the play function), then the space bar will only function as pause, meaning that when beginning to play a stopped (non-playing) video, it will pause on the first frame when the space bar is pressed and I must press the space bar again to get it to actually play (unpause). The correct way that a Play/Pause function should behave is that if a video is not currently playing, then the video should play, not pause. I hope this is clear.

If both Play and Pause are unassigned ("???"), the space bar doesn't do anything. If I set Pause to the space bar and leave Play unassigned, then it's the same thing as above. If I assign only Play to the space bar and leave Pause unassigned, then the space bar won't pause.

Any other ideas?
