Port global hotkeys plugin to Windows
April 05, 2018
As per title, the global hotkeys plugin appears to not be part of the windows build / deployment. Is this something which can be fixed? I know I can use another manager to call the CLI -- it just would be nice not to (:

The current Global Hotkeys plugin uses calls specific to X11 -- it will not work on Windows, Mac, nor on Wayland. A new plugin would have to be written.

I have been playing with audacious recently. I will implement this, you can assign it to me.

Media_Play_Pause:: Run, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacious\bin\audtool.exe" --playback-playpause,,Hide return
