Media Control
Media Control allows you to control Windows Media Player (and others) from within AC. It provides functionality similar to multimedia keyboards, with buttons for Play/Pause, Stop, Fwd, Bkwd, and Volume. It doesn't actually interface with the player, so it can't tell you what song is playing or let you edit a playlist.

Media Control has DHS support, so you can assign hotkeys to the various functions.
Current Version
Media Control v1.1.0.0
The Main Window
Pretty self-explanitory =)
  • If you have Decal Hotkey System installed, you can set up hotkeys for the various functions of Media Control.
  • Other Players: Add these to PlayerApps.ini in the Media Control folder. Only add the ones you plan to use.
    • iTunes // iTunes
    • {DA7CD0DE-1602-45e6-89A1-C2CA151E008E} // foobar2000
    • PlayerCanvas // Quintessential Player
    More to come as they're requested.
  • You can add support for other media players in Media Control, provided that they respond to Windows Messages for Play/Pause, etc. Adding a new media player is not trivial. You need to find the player window's class name, then add that to PlayerApps.ini in the Media Control folder. You can use a program like Spy++ to find the class name. (I don't believe it's available for free -- it comes packaged with Visual Studio).
    Your best bet is to ask me to try to find the class name for another media player =)
Known Bugs
  • There's a problem with the view icon that causes it to have a cyan background instead of transparent.
