  • New:

  • Improved:
  • multimedia keyboards are now supported by default. NOTES: Previously it was required to setup multimedia keys as global hotkeys in Spider Player's options in order for them to work. Now non-system-wide multimedia keys (PLAY/PAUSE, NEXT/PREV TRACK, STOP) are used as secondary local hotkeys by default. If you are upgrading, please hit "Restore defaults" button on Hotkeys page of the options dialog for new settings to take effect. System-wide multimedia keys (MEDIA, VOLUME UP/DOWN, MUTE) are not assigned by default. You still have to assign them manually to avoid any unexpected conflicts. TIP #1: to override default OS behavior (e.g. MEDIA key launching Windows Media Player) use system-wide multimedia keys as global hotkeys in Spider Player. TIP #2: using complex hotkeys like "Ctrl + Shift + Play/Pause Media" is also possible!
