Hmm, okay. But why can't you use the same API that Spotify is using that allows it to play/pause while VS is running?

You can force low level hook for a keyboard by adding value "PreferLLKeysHook = 1" to the [options] section of MediaMonkey.ini file but that is override system design and how input is handled correctly see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/librar ... 65(v=vs.85).aspx MMW corresponds to RIDEV_EXINPUTSINK but not all applications implement that correctly.

That setting doesn't help. The play/pause key still doesn't work in VS.

Hi,
Than VS is blocking all legal Media Key bindings. You can do a test as I explained in viewtopic.php?p=432741#p432741 and I'll give you exact reason and why.
