The play/pause and backward and forward buttons on my MacBook are not working as they should. When I press the play/pause button, nothing happens or it quickly pauses and plays again. Backward/Forward buttons are skipping previous/next song and play the second one in order.

I don't have Google Play Music installed. I've also reset SMC but it didn't help.

Anyone know what could be a possible problem?

I'm using macOS High Sierra.

    To see if it's a hardware issue, assign F8 a particular function. Then, press Fn+F8 to see if it works. If not, then it's possibly hardware. See this post: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/298853/… – Allan Dec 27 '17 at 13:04

  • are those media keys bound to anything? I use Vox media player and it has the ability to hind to those keys making the “unavailable” to other apps. – Allan Dec 27 '17 at 18:17
