Audio Playback Controls

This adds options to control audio playback speed in the reviewer.

You can configure the shortcuts and the speed change from the add-on config under Tools > Add-ons.

There are several add-ons on AnkiWeb that do the same, but it appears that none of them works on the latest versions of Anki (2.1.49+).

This only works with the mpv media player (which Anki uses by default on all platforms).

Hey! This is great. Would it be possible to add a random start point to the playback? I am studying for a music exam where the professor can start the audio from any point and I have to be able to recognize the song. Lots of music students could benefit from that feature.

I’ve added this to the todo list. It’ll probably take me a while to look into it though.
