PocketCasts Hotkeys

Browser extension that adds keyboard control to the PocketCasts webplayer

Background

I love the Google Music Hotkeys extension. I wanted something similar for PocketCasts, so I did what any good software developer would, and copypasted from the internet till it worked.

Features

  • Supports Firefox and Chrome
  • Currently only works for the beta webplayer. I'll add the non-beta webplayer at some stage.
  • Keyboard shortcuts for controlling podcast playback.
    • Toggle playback: Alt+Shift+O
    • Skip episode backwards: Alt+Shift+I
    • Skip episode forwards: Alt+Shift+P
    • Alter playback speed: Alt+Shift+L
  • Menu bar item:
    • A regular click will either:
      • Toggle playback of an episode if PocketCasts is open
      • Opens and pins PocketCasts if it is not open
    • Right click opens a context menu with options for playback
