This is awesome!

well done



Only one suggestion:
Is it possible to add support for the Chrome Extension "Sway.fm Unified Music Media Keys"
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ainoapgjepncej

Many Streaming Services, such as 8tracks.com or just simple youtube-Playback work within the browser.
This extension allows the usage of the Macs Media Keys with those "in page playbacks".

It would be great to have an option to send the media controls just to the OS, without any other appliction selected. Then the aforementioned Chrome extension would capture the input and redirect it. I guess that would be the easiest way.


Thanks for your work!


PS: I liked the Tutorial. Easy and really helpful!

Awesome app, here's some stuff to make it perfect:

- Auto connection on app start.
- Only one button for Play/Pause would be good for some apps.
- Some applications has wrong capitalization.

Note taken, . Hopefully will be added on the next release (I had autoconnection in mind also, and is half baked)

I can't seem to get it to work with any app. It clearly connects, and I can control the volume, brightness, and the other non-app specific functions, but not anything else. I've mainly been trying to get it to work with MPlayerX, but iTunes and Quicktime also did not work. Any ideas?
