All Inspiron 8xxx users - how to use media keys.

I couldn't get Winamp 5's global keys feature to pick up three of the four media keys on my Dell Inspiron 8200 (only play/pause would work). I tried different plugins, but none really worked well.

Then I found this website... http://mijav.dk/

Go to the bottom of the page and download the Dll file (even though it says for Winamp2) and put it in the Winamp directory.

And that's it - working media keys!!

Hope this helps others.

shieet

bwahaha, my winamp crashed and I had to re-install it.
Guess what, I forgot to save this plugin, and googled to find this thread again, and all I get is "user submitted URL".

now the twist... the un-install feat had saved the plugin (and skins) which I had moved to the trashcan, where I found it, gen_inspironbuttons.dll

I'm so happy right now Anyway I googled for that name but couldn't find any striaght up... so if you have any trouble getting your media buttons to work with your winamp and yer on a inspiron machine, just send me an email at demmagog [at] gmail.com

Peace
