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.
