This plugin uses a standard QuickTime controller bar for starting and stopping the movie, moving throught it, and adjusting the volume. In addition, you can start and stop the movie by pressing the space bar, move foreward or backward by a single frame using the arrow keys, and capture a frame by pressing "g" (grab). Also note that clicking on a running movie stops it and double clicking starts it.
