Dell Inspiron media buttons Winamp plugin

Inspiron media buttonsThis is a general purpose Winamp 2/5 plugin that allows you to use the media buttons on your Dell Inspiron keyboard to control Winamp. I wrote this primarily for my own use with my Inspiron 8000, and I believe it also works on Inspiron 8100 and 8200. There is also a report that it works on Inspiron 6400. I don't know if it will work on other models. To get it to work, you may need to uninstall the Dell keyboard software, but it's practically useless anyway, so that's not a big deal. Just put this DLL file in your Winamp\Plugins folder and you can use your Inspiron media buttons to control Winamp, even when Winamp is not the active window.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for making this great plugin - now those dumb buttons have a good use!

Also just wanted to let you know that I have it working on my Inspiron 8100, WinXP Home with Winamp3 and the Winamp 2x Plugin converter. I did have to uninstall Dell's AccessDirect program then everything worked great.

Thanks again!
Chad

Note: There is a modified version available here that is said to work with Inspiron 6000, 8500, 8600, 9200, 9300, and XPS Gen series.
