Well, first off, did you RTFM at ALL?  This is covered, once in the manuals, and also AT LEAST 5 times in the mailing list archives...

'<' previous file
'>' next file
'p' or 'spacebar' pause

If you are using a presentation, maybe you should look into LIRC as well, then you can set it up with a remote control...
