Control iTunes with X-Tunes
Authored by: agraboso on Jun 25, '04 05:38:15PM

My winner program for this is X-Tunes, which is freeware preference pane app.

Holding down a particular combination of keys (Command-Space by default, but I use Command-Option-C) displays a floating window in the center of the screen with info about the currently playing track. Pressing Enter pauses/resumes iTunes; left and right arrow keys go to the previous and next song, respectively; up and down arrow keys turn up or down iTunes volume.

Control iTunes with X-Tunes

I'd definitely agree with the freeware application, X-Tunes. It's unobtrusive and easy to use. Plus, it's transparent (or you can change it to be such). So it doesn't intrude with other work for the minimal amount of time it's viewable after hitting the selected key command to bring it up :-)
