How to control OMXPlayer in Raspberry Pi? Answered

Does anyone know how to control the OMXPlayer media player within the raspberry Pi?  I tried the online suggestions of the key bindings available here but http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=63? but it doesn't work either in the terminal or in as hot keys.  I'm using the OMXPlayer that came embedded with the newest version of Raspbian.

Any help is appreciated!

http://www.binaryemotions.com/raspberry-video/ might be easier than dealing with the keybinding issues.

Also, after googling around for other issues, it sounds like some keybinding issues are related to the Pi's firmware. You might want to try:

sudo apt-get install rpi-update
