I have a wonderful plugin for Winamp called "Reproduction Control". It was (for my purposes) one notable feature: global hotkeys. This is the ultimate convenience: I can skip songs, change volume, pause, etc. with quick keystrokes. It doesn't matter what application is active, if the player's minimized, whatever. I hardly need to stop coding!

(Especially great for the workplace - pause in a split-second winking smiley

So, reasonable feature, right?

David - nice smiling smiley

However getting a multimedia keyboard will do the same thing smiling smiley if the program you are using supports them that is.

But CP doesn't respond to multimedia keyboards...at least not my MS one.

currently on my version of coolplayer i have the F10 key set to next song and the F11 key set to previous song,the keys and what they do are currently hard coded in, but it wouldnt be too hard to add a few setting in to allow people to add/change global hotkeys, if anyone wants this badly i would put in the effort to add it in to 205 as the current 206 source aint anywhere i can see.

Works great! Volume changes are a bit too course, though. Do you have plans to continue working on it, extend it with other functions? I would like to see the source, if I could. What environment was it written in?

And, it still might be worthwhile to look at integration into coolplayer.
