Media Actions

The following actions can be used to control the media playback. Note that all actions take a “channel_name” argument. This is used to target a specific playback channel. For example if a video is started with “gra.media.new.video” with “channel_name=video1” then any subsequent action which wants to act on this video, such as play/pause, must set the channel “video1”.
