First of all, registering for a winamp account is extremely frustrating
and I want to destroy these f&ckers for making me spend like 1/2 hour just trying to respond to this god d&mn thread.
... and now my message might not even get posted for the profanity.
I'm using Microsoft Natural Multimedia Keyboard 1.0a and Intellitype Pro 5.2. Here's how I got the damn thing to cooperate with Winamp:
Winamp Prefs -> Global Hotkeys (under General Preferences) -> Enable -> Restore Defaults
Now set your Winamp skin to a Classic skin (Hey winamp guys, fix that please)
In IntelliType Pro 5.2, use the defaults for play/pause, stop, etc.
Now that the keyboard controls everything, get the Winamp icon out of the task bar. To do this:
Winamp Prefs -> General Preferences -> Check "System tray" (under 'Show Winamp in') -> Uncheck "Taskbar"
Download the latest Intellitype software here:
And if you're sick of the
icon, change it to another one of its very limited and terrible icons options.
(Hey winamp guys, seriously. These are the same icon picks we had in version 2!)
