      This is amazing and a lot more than what others offer. The idea for the hotkeys from 1 to 9 was amazing. Really appreciate the work and thanks a lot to everyone who worked on this.

      This player works a LOT better with MacOS Safari, especially when it comes to watching videos at faster speeds. 

      Thanks, you guys.

      Thanks for the vid - I wouldn't have known about the hot keys feature being added otherwise.

      Where can I post some more suggestions?

      e.g. Ch9 Player code opensource. Shrinking chrome when zoom in. Help in player with hot keys listed
