  • Global Hot Keys for Windows Media Player?

    One of the things that I like best about Winamp-based players (such as MediaCar), and what has kept me from switching to one based on Windows Media Player, is the availability of "Global Hot Keys". I have a keypad connected to my car computer, and know that I just need to press the "9" key on the keypad, and it will always go to the next song (I usually play everything in random mode), regardless of which program I am running.

    Is there anything similar available for Windows Media Player-based players? Would Girder work to do this?

    FrodoPlayer supports windows messages. Search.
    Girder works great with FrodoPlayer.

      get phonecontrol and use your mobile phone to skip tracks on your computer - or pause or whatever -- see Zorro in the the Support Sotware -> PhoneControl section
