    Play/Pause button doens't work on all windows on my iMac ?

    Sometimes when im in my web browser (google chrome) the play/pause button wont work on itunes. Its not a hardware issue because if i close the webpage im on (dont even have to close whole browser) it will start to work, and it only does it on certain webpages, they're not webpages with player interfaces either that would interfere with the play/pause button.

    Anybody else had this issue ?

    What version of itunes do you use? I updated mine to newest 10.5 so I can sync with iPad and iPhone on iOS 5.

    Unexpected nice bonus ..

    Now I can use music control buttons on Apple keyboard even with iTunes on background task! Neat ...
    Even Apple IR remote works like a charm, I press menu button and it'll open iTunes on windows, not works on OSX though, strange huh?

    It's not working if you're in game or open another media player since it will override the function buttons.

    In short, try upgrade your itunes if you havent. Older versions do not support music control while itunes in background.

    I'm currently running iTunes 10.5 (141) (64bit)

    Yeah i haven't actually experienced any problems while playing games, but its mainly in my web browser, it sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.
