I have an android bluetooth keyboard (Motorola) and a bluetooth smart remote (Satechi).

Prior to update 0.7.10, I only press the play/pause key on the BT device to pause or play, exactly how you would press the keyboard space key when streaming CR on a PC browser. However, with the latest update, it no longer functions that way. Instead, I have to touch the screen for the video controls to pop up, then the BT device will be able to P/P, and if the video controls hide themselves after a few seconds, the BT device won't P/P until i bring up the video controls by touching the screen again.

I have 3 android tablets (auto-update) and 1 android phone (manual-update). I first noticed this problem on my 3 tablets since they had recently updated CR app. I tested this on my phone which had an older CR version, and the BT device worked like it was supposed to on the phone. Being curious, I manually updated the phone CR app, and the BT no longer works as I expected.

This is a big enough hassle for me to stop using the CR app, because I tend to P/P the video often. Will there be another update to re-implement this function?

Is there no button you can press on your keyboard to make the controls pop up? I know it isn't exactly what you want but it is a workaround in the meantime.

Just talked to the engineer and he let me know it's on his list of things to work back in.

Apologies for any inconvenience.
