I have 4 media keys on my windows keyboard, [Play/Pause, Back, Forward, Mute] and a Volume knob. Whilst LibreOffice is focused, none of these buttons work. How would I go about enabling them (if it is possible at the moment)?

Hi, What behavior do you expect from the media keys when LO has focus? Would you like to use them to control media inside LO documents?

I have the very same problem. LO captures globally hooked multimedia keys.

I am not sure this is a LO bug. On my machine HP-PC Win7 Home Prem 64-bit with hp-media keyboard everything works perfectly fine. Maybe a driver problem in Win.

I want to support this question. Globally hooked multimedia keys must work unrelated on focused application or any other things and only when LO window focused they don't.
