MediaMonkey ignores multimedia keys when Opera has focus

Post by MeMeMe »

I realise this is probably an Opera problem not a MM one, but maybe not.

My keyboard has multimedia keys, and they drive MM fine (Play, Pause, FF, RW, Mute) when any program but the Opera browser has focus.
In Opera, nothing happens.

Two systems:
WinXP SP2, P4 1024MB, Laptop with DVD writer, 1 HD (C:/, D:/), MediaMonkey build 2.5.1.934, Default plugins enabled + MAD plug-in enabled
And:
WinXP SP2, PM 1024MB, Laptop with DVD writer, 1 HD (C:/, D:/), MediaMonkey build 2.5.1.934, Default plugins enabled + MAD plug-in enabled

Does this only happen with Opera or also with other applications?

I haven't yet found another application it occurs with - it does seem to be just Opera.
I haven't tested any other browsers - but it doesn't affect any of the productivity apps I use.

Then Opera probably hijacks the keys, wonder what they do though.

Opera has a load of keyboard shortcuts - so that's probably true. But I've never noticed the multimedia keys do anything in Opera before installing MM.
Also, when I had iTunes and Winamp installed, the keys worked fine to control them even when Opera had focus. So it's weird.
