Like most, I'm having trouble with my media keys being hijacked, so I can't press Play/Pause/Rewind/Fast Forward and have it work with iTunes. In the past, the culprit has been Google Chrome Music, but this time that's not it. I don't have that extension, or any other media extension installed. I don't use Spotify or Pandora or have any media applications other than iTunes. The fn setting in System Preferences is also not the solution because I don't have it checked.
I'm open to any solution, and am familiar enough with command line if anyone has a really technical solution. Please and thanks in advance!
