I think you need different functions for these, assigned to
different keys, if you don't want that you'd need one big
function that would perhaps based on the directory file name
take proper action - even so it can be beneficial to have it
call different functions ... it will be easier (and better) to
write it that way as well.

No, I don't use DVDs, and I use mpv for Hollywood movies and
Australian Survivor episodes ...
