Winamp's global hotkeys won't work

Hey guys!

I use Winamp Media Player to play my song and I found an issue with it and LoL recently.
Here's the deal, I have the option of setting up some hotkeys to control it doing anything else. For example, I have some combination of keys that allow me to Play, Pause and Foward my songs during the game playing.
The point is: it is not working with the game started. It works while LoL is on the client screen, but then the game starts, goes fullscreen, and winamp's hotkeys stop working.

Is this really a bug or something like it?

Vista or Windows 7?

Run winamp as administrator

I'm not sure. Do some of the hotkeys conflict with lol's hotkeys?

No the problem is that the event seem to not be passed to window from lol. The winamp deamon seem to not receive key events.

Doesn't seem like a conflict.
I've set up various keys on winamp but none of them work inside the game.

Nah, the hotkeys are things like "Ctrl-Alt-Pagedown" and whatnot.

It DOES work with buttons that are keyed directly from the keyboard, like custom media buttons and whatnot.

Well, I don't use media keys, I use keyboard combinations.

Anyway, the problem persists. Will you guys correct it? :\
I just find it useful to control winamp inside the game.

Yea, I have the same problem. Would love to be able to change tracks instantly rather than wait until I'm somewhere safe, alt+tab out, change the track, and alt+tab back in again.

I also would greatly appreciate the ability to use Winamp's global hotkeys from within a game. Is there a chance we'll see this fixed soon?
