Global Hotkeys (Quicksilver, Applescript?)
Posted: Mon Oct 15, 2007 4:10 pm
First off, I have to say that I'm *really* impressed with v0.2. With this version, it looks like I won't have to deal with installing all the KDE libraries just to get a decent audio player on OSX (I was originally thinking of using Amarok, which I also really like). Now, I've just got one detail left that I'd like to resolve: Global Hotkeys (i.e. for play/pause, next/previous, increase/decrease volume). If there's not a built-in way to do this, I was thinking that I could use my normal method of writing a little applescript for the relevant command, and then binding that script to a hotkey combo via Quicksilver. However, in order to do this, I would of course need to know what (if any) applescript commands I can use with Play. I'm hopeful that this will work since now (i.e. v0.2) my scripts to move/resize windows *do* work on Play (whereas they didn't before). So, if anyone knows any information about scripting Play, I'd love to hear it. Alternatively, if you've got another way of making global hotkeys, I'd like to hear that too.
