Control iTunes using hot keys.

Overview

TuneKeys is a prefpane utility that allows you to control iTunes with global hot keys. Features include:
  • Customization. Choose which hot key combination you want to assign to different actions.
  • Autolaunch. Have TuneKeys start automatically when you log in to save you time.
  • Background Application. The TuneKeys helper application runs in the background so you'll never notice it. Customize the way the application works by using the system preferences.

::::applause:::: Thank-you, Whitney!!! For anyone who's curious, I've been running TuneKeys for ~an hour and, according to Activity Monitor, there's 0% added CPU use and slightly over 17 MB of memory used by the TuneKeysHelperApp (which is well within normal range for a background process). S'working perfectly. Too cool! (-:

I replaced my gnu/linux debian on my ibook because Macromedia insists not givin us a flash plugin. The most important miss on the change was the multiple desktops, solved with the "Desktop Manager". And why we have thousands desktops if we needs to travel trought them to change a song ? I've instaled another program that requires a mouse intervation. Beautiful program, but not so usable for developers and sysadmins people. So, I found TuneKeys. My productivity grew a lot using it and I have helped by developers as quickly as internet can be. Now I need a free screen locker, like xtrlock, do you have one ?

Another alternative... no shortcuts, but a quick menu for common commands and display of current track and artist: iTunesTrack http://www.jumpingfish.de/

Screen locker? What about the one included in Mac OS X (System Prefs/Security)?

The one provided with Mac OS X doesn't have a "lock screen on this keypress" option. Really, the one thing Mac OS X badly needs is a central keyboard manager, a preference pane to give the user control over the whole keyboard, instead of having different system components and apps doing a bit here and a bit there... For example, Expose. It'll watch for the mouse entering one corner of the screen, and it'll accept F9-F11, but if I want to use (say) CMD-OPT-A for "all applications"... Expose doesn't have that option. Really, there should be some "input manager" somewhere that programs register with, and you go into the input manager preferences and pull up "Expose, show all windows", enter the key you want, and Bob's your uncle... While they're at it, they could do something about integrating Services and Contextual Menu plugins and menubar applets... and bring back spring-loaded folders... ah, progress...

17MB of ram, he means. The program itself is ~200KB.

Yet another one. If you want a hotkey controler for iTunes, just take a look at SizzlingKeys. Easy control, a nice floater displaying cd cover. If you don't matter for paying, try Synergy.

I would argue that for a Cocoa application, 17mb is slightly too much. Conceivably you could get something like this down into the kb's.
