Request for hotkey to toggle subtitles

xtreme1xtreme1 Posts: 7Members ✭✭

The hotkeys for plex media player seem to be a little lacking... Is there any way to get a hotkey for subtitles at least?

    It already exists and the defaults are L to cycle, S to toggle:

    cat ~/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Player/inputmaps/examples/keyboard.json | grep sub

        "L": "cycle_subtitles",
        "Ctrl\\+L": "cycle_subtitles_back",
        "S": "toggle_subtitles",
        "Alt\\+S": "increase_subtitles_delay",
        "Alt\\+Shift\\+S": "decrease_subtitles_delay",

    Right, for fullscreen mode, but I use the desktop mode exclusively.
