    AutoHotKey can do it.

    After you download AutoHotKey, go to Notepad and type the following code:

    Code: [Select]
    Media_Play_Pause::Send, {Space}
    Save the file as "Keyboard Play Key.ahk" and run that file.  (You can save the file anywhere you want and replace "Keyboard Play Key" with anything you want.)

    Now, when you press the "Play" key on your keyboard, VLC will play/pause.

    Note: The VLC window has to be selected for this to work.  I will try to find a way around that.

      thank you but for what ever reason some times one of my other hotkeys does not work it is to make the desktop icons disappear and reappear when you press it again
