Are you using the Asterisk Key on the NumberPad w/ NumLock ON?
That works for me.
Bill, yes I am using the Asterisk key on the numeric key pad with the nums lock on. I know this function works as I have used it before in previous versions. Just not sure if I have used it before in this new installed version of PREL 8.0 that I have.
I have installed the latest updates also.
Try turning Num Lock off. It's not necessary.
I have also tried that and the asterisk key still stops the audio track.
Sorry, Stewart. Tried it on version 8 on my computer and it works just as it should.
Pressing the * key on the number pad drops an unnumbered marker and the video continues to play.
Have you ensured that the timeline panel is selected when you start your video? (I assume it is. I'm not sure any other way you could play it.)
