[Mplayer-users] Reactions to keystrokes when framedropping

when mplayer runs framedropping it does not accept keystrokes in the output 
window during drops. You have to switch to the console to control it. 
That's not good, e.g. when I play a movie (fullscreen, of course) which is 
too slow for my machine, then it drops all frames and I have to use Alt-TAB 
to get my console back, to press 'q'. Otherwise I'm stuck with a black 
screen. :-(

Now, not every window manager supports Alt-TAB...
