    Not sure if this has been discussed (if so please share link to thread), but the media playback buttons on my third-party keyboard (Moshi Luna) no longer work under High Sierra. This is pretty annoying since I can no longer control iTunes with a keyboard shortcut, and have to switch to the app for basic controls. Is there a workaround or solution?

    Evan,

    I imagine that you could look into one of two solutions: the first would be to wait for your keyboard maker to update their firmware to work with High Sierra. Or, you could look into an app like USB Overdrive, that might duplicate the iTunes functionality you're missing.

    Ugh, unfortunately this keyboard has since been discontinued. I'll check out USB Overdrive, thanks!

    Karabiner Elements might provide the fix you want.
    Developers say it works under HS, but I have not yet tried it.
    Might need a copy of Keycodes to see which keys you need to remap.

    It seems I'm having weird behavior too, but I'm using a Magic Keyboard 2. Sometimes the media keys work iTunes, sometimes they control a video that is on screen, even if iTunes is playing, I can't figure it out.
