I want to make music play/pause pressing space (like it does in VLC).

How can I change this?

Edit: I am aware of global hotkey option, but i dont want it to be global, thus, i dont want to pause/unpause every time i press space while writing a message... :D

Ctrl + P -> Preferences -> General Preferences -> Global hotkeys, there should have checkbox to enable editing the key combinations.

Choose action and at the "hotkey" press the Space

They are builded like that, no direct way to override them. There are some plugins, which I haven`t tested. –  Bakudan May 10 '11 at 4:56
