Running Winamp in a background... keyboard shortcut to next song?

Hello everyone, I have a pretty unusual question to ask if i may, i hope somebody could help me out with this...

I need to run winamp in the background whilst running a program. Whilst it is quite happy to do this, i have no control over the winamp player without Alt-Tab out of the program.

What i'd like, is to have a button on the keyboard i can press whilst running the program with winamp in the background, that would skip sings, i mean go to the next or previous song in the playlist. I hope i've explained it clearly...

Anyway i can't find any info on this, and i can't find any other music player that hints at this... Can anybody point me in the right direction? Or know of a player that can do this?

Thanks Everyone

CTRL + P > preferences > Global hotkeys > Check the 'Enabled' option and you are ready to go!

Go with the default options, or configure your own, it's pretty self explanatory on the preferences page.

(assuming you installed that option originally.)

Listen to the boots.

In my opinion, global hotkeys are the best feature of Winamp. I haven't seen the interface for months, yet I play music with it every day.

I'm a psychosomatic sister running around without a leash.
