I have a Logitech Internet Pro keyboard, which has the multimedia keys for Media (to launch player) and Play/Pause. How do I associate these keys to launch Foobar2000 and play/pause the song it is playing?

(This is on Windows XP.)

For Play/Pause:

File -> Preferences -> General -> Keyboard Shortcuts

Click Add New and setup the binding you want. Make sure to select Global Hotkey.

As for launching from a keystroke, when you edit the properties of a shortcut you can assign a Shortcut key.

I might be to late but, they now work by default in the newest version (.9.6.8) if you use Column UI. Oddly enough it doesn't work in the DUI. Also, if you make the media keys global on foobar2000 it won't work on any other applications if foobar is running; just something to keep in mind.
