    I know that there's something out there that does this, but I've got no idea what it's called.

    I want to be able to pause/play, skip, and replay from inside games. Something that uses the F14-16 buttons would be nice. I play C&C Generals while listning to podcasts, and I'd like a way to controle them with out having to quite eachtime I need to pause for a minutes or two.

    Thanks

    Quicktunes has hotkeys you can program.
    Do a search on Versiontracker, and you'll find what you need.

    i think an app called synergy or synergize something like that may do that.

    There's a brilliant app called X-Tunes which [when you hit a key combo] it brings up a semi transparent control panel in front of everything. I use it all the time, highly recommended!

    I've just given that a look. It's nicer than the other one. I've not tired it in my games yet, the last one didn't work.

    EDIT: This won't work either. Never mind. Still damn useful to have about.
