Is there any way to control Youtube through the media keys on the keyboard?

I have a nifty keyboard with media controls (play, stop, pause, forward and reverse). Is there any way to use them to control Youtube? That is, so that it pauses when I hit the pause key and moves back and forth between clips on the playlist with the forward and reverse keys?

I find BearedSpice to be the great solution. It works for Safari and Chrome (probably other web browsers) as well as media players like Spotify and iTunes.

If you refer to Chrome as browser, there is chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/key-socket-media-keys/fphfgdknbpakeedbaenojjdcdoajihik which even is open source github.com/borismus/keysocket.
