I found that the suggestion to use mpris-control did exactly what I wanted, and this is no longer problematic for me.

Media keys stopped working for me after an update and then started working again suddenly. I checked the version and it's 1:1.0.98.78.gb45d2a6b-10. I don't know if the client was upgraded or a dependent package was upgraded.

EDIT: my bad. reboot fixed it

The latest snap update 1.1.5.153.gf614956d-16 is not with media keys too on Kubuntu 19.04. It worked with the previous versions (but that couldn't play local files due to a bug). Spotify doesn't show up in the media player widget

Spotify 1.0.80.480.g51b03ac3 . Running on Gentoo with Plasma desktop. All media players and browsers work flawlessly with media keys, not Spotify. Alternate media shortcuts via D-Bus commands is a nasty hack. Please address this.

Not working again for me either.  I notice it works for awhile after a
reboot but then I think plasmashell or pulseaudio crashed and had to be
restarted and then the media keys stopped working again.
Do the devs read these? I wonder if the code is relying on stale
handles.

I'm using Spotify 1.1.10.546.ge08ef575 on Manjaro Linux. The browser and other software work well with media keys, not Spotify. Please fix this issue.
