When playing a file in QuickTime Player in the background, and working on a transcription in the foreground. I found it useful to be able to pause and restart the playing file without leaving the transcription.

I opened the screenshotScript Editor program and typed in the script

tell application "QuickTime Player"
if movie 1 is playing then
stop movie 1
play movie 1
end if
end tell

I can then use script menu to play and stop the recording running in the background.
