Some ten days ago Giveawayoftheday was offering the $30 WireKeys, but somehow I missed it. Today I wrote the author and he gave me a copy for free! Very nice touch :-) 

I looked at the plugins' page and ..

I have only had this new program installed for a day, but two features I have come to like at once you can see here:

WireKeys.GIF

Have the Start button display free RAM or CPU, and give any taskbar button you point at a close button.

I know I would like to remote control Media Player Classic...   ;)

This is a piece of cake with AutoHotkey.  I have the following hotkey'd for MPC:

Play/Pause
Stop
Mute
Volume up/down
Next/prev audio track
Next/prev subtitle
Close MPC

This functionality is part of my larger AHK amp script that controls Winamp/Foobar, MPC, WMP, ScreamerRadio and XaMp studio.  It wouldn't take much to break out the MPC functionality and build a quick GUI for it (if you're interested).

isn't that what the media keys on some keyboards (like Play, Pause, Volume, etc.) do?

Yes, but the apps that they support natively is _very_ limited.

yes, i thought so.. btw, can your script cater for KMPlayer also and you mentioned ScreamerRadio, is it similar to Skrommel's ScreamerMenu? :)

It doesn't currently but I could certainly install it and try.

His app caters more to the lack of a fully-featured favourites system within ScreamerRadio.  However, I actually sent Skrommel the code I use for my ScreamerRadio hotkeys and he's welcome to use it however he sees fit.

Most generous offer.  :Thmbsup:

I cannot remember many hotkeys, but I would VERY much like you to add the basics:
Play, Pause, Stop, Next, Previous

- but because of programs installed but seldom used, I am having a hard time trying to figure out which hotkeys are free! Can you let the choices include the numerics (with NumLock disabled), please?

No volume, as I use Volumouse.

Sure.

Well, you still might like a way to control the volume since it will only adjust the app's volume and not mess with your regular system/wav volume levels.

I just did some research into KMPlayer and it seems that it actually tries to mimic a standard Winamp classname (Winamp v1.x).  In other words, most of my Foobar/Winamp code seems to work okay for KMPlayer.  What sort of functionality were you expecting?  Just the standard play/pause/stop/next/prev/volume/mute?  Or, something more?

that is good enough for me.. i need only simple controls like what you mentioned plus some additions like toggle fullscreen, opening files and send/recall the app to/from systray (if possible).. :)

Nice feature; didn't think of that. Yes, please!  :Thmbsup:
