I have a game (Star Trek Online) that will allow you to control either WinAmp or iTunes if it's installed. Since WinAmp isn't being actively developed anymore, I'd like to use fb2k. Is their a plugin which will fool programs into thinking it's Winamp for the purposes of playback control?

What's the point of using weird hooks from games instead of controlling your music player using...the music player itself?

You can set up keyboard shortcuts in foobar. You can also use the multimedia keys on your keyboard (if you have any) and foobar will respond accordingly as well.

Well. I have no multimedia keys (Das Keyboard). Also, I've tried setting up keyboard shortcuts. I'm assuming that STO intercepts them for it's own use, since it doesn't work, no matter how bizarre of a key combo I set up.
