Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

media keyboardAlmost everybody has a multimedia keyboard noways but unfortunately, not all applications support multimedia keyboards. Media Keyboard 2 is a application that adds support for media keys in several media players that do not support those keys by design: VLC Media Player, XMPlay, Winamp Classic, FreeAMP, 1by1, Xion and Zinf.

Media Keyboard 2 Media Player intercepts the key presses of your modern multimedia keyboard keys and then sends the appropriate hotkeys to your (supported) media player.

NOTE: If you change the hotkeys for one of the media players listed, Media Keyboard 2 Media Player will no longer work for that media player. So if you wish to use this, please leave the hotkeys at default settings for your media player.
