The question :
Disabling the escape key in the webplayer - how? Is it possible by any means?
I've read about the topic and the only idea I've got is to use windows hooks which surprisingly would work only with windows, apart from the fact that it is a hell of a drag to code and that almost certainly antivirus programs would block it and etc.
The last thing I'm considering is a small application that has only one functionality - blocking the ESC key, which hardcore gamers could download and use.
