Is it possible to start/pause video in Windows Media Player using the keyboard

I am frequently listening to tecnical video presentations (for example, from .NET Rocks TV) on my netbook. I watch a portion of the video, click the pause button using the mouse, Alt + TAB to my open Visual Studio and do somecoding, then Alt + TAB back to Windows Media Player (WMP), mouse click to restart the video (repeat every 1-2 minutes).

Ctrl-P, but I assume it'll only work when focused. Can't test it out, I'm on Ubuntu.

The Windows Media Player Plus! plugin should also be able to help:
