Control media player on panel

Postby Ahtna on Tue Sep 01, 2009 11:48 am

Hello,

is there a program or plug-in/applet/whatever which lets you control the media player from the panel. (Something like this: http://www.instantfundas.com/2008/09/how-to-control-your-favorite-media.html)

I just switched from Windows, and this is a function I used a lot, so I would really like it if someone knows something similar!

Thank for the suggestion, but that is not exactly what I mean. I want a play/stop button and previous/next button from the player visible.

This sounded great, but unfortunately I was not able to get it to work. I'm wondering if it's because I'm running the x64 edition.
