Media

Control of media and media players

As you can see from the actions available in this category, we are talking about media players control. The volume control actions (Mute, Increase and Decrease) act directly on the system and not on the player itself. [block:callout] { "type": "warning", "body": "For this reason you won’t see the volume control slider of the player move or the icons appear in overlay on your monitor, but listen to your audio stream and you will notice that, depending on the action performed, change happens!" } [/block] Transport actions instead (Skip forward, Play/Pause and Skip back) operate on the last used media player, be it for example iTunes, Spotify or VLC.
