This trick works on my Logitech Desktop (MX3100) with Foobar2000 v0.9.4.1 and Win XP Pro 64-bit SP1 when Logitech's SetPoint sw is closed.When SetPoint is running is foobar is minimized, this trick does not work. I don't want to miss the features of SetPoint (+ uberOptions) and still want to be able to contol other media players using my MM buttons.Any idea how to accomplish that?Thanks in advance
I'm trying it now. LX700 Keyboard with setpoint and uberoptions. Foobar v0.9.4.1 with WinXP SP2. Did what you said and it doesn't work. It does work when it's on screen but not when it's minimized. Setpoint also doesn't recognize foobar2000 in the media player button options. It only lists Winamp, WMP, WMP10. I can manually set it to launch foobar. It may be uberoptions. Though that just adds more abilities to Setpoint.
Intellitype? K. You'll have to hold while I find a Microsoft keyboard...
"C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" /playpause
If you can program keys to run a command you could program them to do things likeCode: [Select]"C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" /playpause
Step 4: Click in this box and press the button on your multimedia keyboard you want to associate with the shortcut. You should get something appearing here ending in (MM). If nothing appears, jump to the troubleshooting section.
What a great guide! Can I ask a question though... How the tell do I change what my Multimedia Volume Control does? Currently it's set to the wrong sound card, so is of little use. Foobar calls the control ('Volume up (MM)' and 'Volume down (MM)')This would be great to find out because I've searched the internet for months looking for this info...
Thanks - let me know if you figure anything out. I really like the MS natural keyboards as hardware, but the software sucks (MS is very inflexible in what you can programme the multimedia keys to do )
