In all my video's with chapter markers (all are mkv extension) the F7 and F8 keys do not work. However right clicking and choosing next or previous chapter does work.

F7 and F8 keys work as fine when watching a DVD.

This comes from the way shortcuts are preset in Fullscreen Video mode. You can re-define shortcuts in Video Full Screen mode and assign ACTION_NEXT_CHAPTER / ACTION_NEXT_CHAPTER to F7/F8. It then works like a charm.
