Play/Pause Web Video

Is there a way to create a macro to play/pause a video playing in a web browser? I've seen one for YouTube but what about other sites that play videos?

let us know which browser and give us a cOuple of sites/urls you are thinking of

On a Mac with Safari, just touch the spacebar to stop and start a video.

As far as I know, most popular video sites should respond to the default keyboard Play key, which you can simulate with the Simulate Hardware Key action:

Note that you may have to "select" the video by manually clicking it or its built-in play/pause button before the system will register it as the frontmost media.

This works great for play/pause functionality for YouTube video that are in a background browser window or tab. Thank you gglick. Good stuff
