HID Plugin v1.5 - Use any HID remote control with Winamp

Staff review

HID Controller

This plugin might be useful for those who cannot control winamp via Global Hotkeys. Easy to configure.


excelent - works super in W7! - August 26, 2009 by Rob

What a Great Plug-in! - For a month or so, I've been looking for a way for my multimedia keyboard to control Winamp, to remove the need to alt-tab to switch songs, since Winamp would only occasionally detect the keyboard. Lo and behold, this plug-in has done what no other has, and my keyboard now does what I want! However, the volume control doesn't seem to work (I'll keep trying though), and some features aren't enable in the free version, but well worth it! - January 9, 2009 by Geoff Elliott

The latest HID Plugin - The new HID Plugin v1.3 is released. It seems more better now. Setup is available here: - October 30, 2008 by Roman Novgorodov

Great job - A few months ago I bought a Trust multimedia remote control. It's software sucked big time, and it hadn't had support for Winamp. I configured it eventually, but it was buggy, the Winamp window had to be in the foreground, and it crashed a lot. This plug-in is exactly what I needed. Thanks very much. 5 stars from me. I'm looking forward for next releases, I would like to configure all my buttons. And as a suggestion you could link it to Global Hotkeys... this way any action could be assign to any button.Keep up the good work, thanks again - October 28, 2008 by Zoltan Antal
