Issue #56 resolved

Media key lock when running - to stop iTunes launching

Matthew Balaam
created an issue

Other Media players on OS X, such as Clementine or Spotify stop iTunes from launching when the play media buttons is pressed. Which I find rather annoying, and something which puts me off Apple that little bit every time it happens, but that's my own issue of course.

In the past I've run a script called MMFix, but this no longer works on Mountain Lion. At the moment I'm using a workaround of leaving Quicktime running, but this seems like overkill.

    my dirty hack: You can unload rcd by launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.rcd.plist

    old hack from internets: patch rcd binary placed in /System/Library/CoreServices/rcd.app/Contents/MacOS/rcd by replacing string "iTunes" with smth like "iTunez"
