Next / Previous media keys don't work on 3rd Party Keyboard, Play/Pause does work. [MAC]

Hello!

 

So I am using a Logitech G710+ keyboard with my Mac (running 10.9) , and the media keys (Play/Pause, Stop, Next and Previous) work perfectly fine with iTunes, even in background.

 

Now, when I use Spotify, I usually quit iTunes (to stop conflicts), but only the Play/Pause key seems to work.

It does work in the background, which is good, but crucially the Next / Previous keys don't work at all.

 

Any ideas?

This fix from WASD keyboards support does the trick on my Cooler Master CM Storm Quickfire XT: http://support.wasdkeyboards.com/customer/portal/articles/1925899-fixing-spotify-media-keys-issue-in...

 

Edit: my keyboard is the nordic ISO variant if that makes a difference.

The BeardedSpice app is working great (allthough it does not control my youtube videos)

Hi,

 

I'm having the same issue but with a CoolerMaster QuickFire TK.

Running Mavericks:

iTunes all media keys work.

Spotify only play/pause works.

 

Any fix yet?

I'm having this same issue. G710+ keyboard on OSX 10.9 and only the Pause and Play button works for Spotify. Itunes everything works great.

I found that if you assign the media fuctions to the G keys they work throughout all programs.

This happens to me as well on the Corsair K70 Vengence Keyboard. All media keys except next, previous and stop.

 

Any news?

Same issue here. Running 10.10.1 - Play/Pause key works fine, but next and previous do not. Seems like a problem with spotify since they work fine with iTunes and Rdio apps
