Media hotkeys don't work
I've noticed that global hotkeys for audacious just disabled os something like that. I've already removed config files for it and reinstalled audacious. So then it worked, but after some time ... stoped. I'm talking about media keys like ( Fn+Play etc. ) ... so I guess that something wrong with plugin_registry file. It just stops listening to media keys.
Btw thank you very much for this type of music player

I know I'm not really invited, but (as I have a similar problem), I deleted my config and restarted audacious. I tried binding key combinations to the command "audacious --play". Although that command works from the command line, it does not work when invoked by the WM (for example, using xbindkeys).
This is only in the most recent version; the previous version worked fine. Did you change how audacious listens to X11 keypress events?

I don't think it's the same problem, so you're just adding confusion here. Please take your troubleshooting questions to the forum.

No, the hotkey handling hasn't changed in years.

I'm sure I'm not invited either (lol), but here's something I do w/xbindkeys on a box (a big clunky ol' Dell Inspiron 1564 lappy) w/media keys:
... #Prev Song "/usr/local/bin/audtool_user.sh playlist-reverse" m:0x0 + c:173 XF86AudioPrev #PlayPause "/usr/local/bin/audtool_user.sh playlist-pause" m:0x0 + c:172 NoSymbol #Next Song "/usr/local/bin/audtool_user.sh playlist-advance" m:0x0 + c:171 NoSymbol #Quieter "/usr/bin/amixer -q set Master 4- unmute" m:0x0 + c:122 XF86AudioLowerVolume #Louder "/usr/bin/amixer -q set Master 4+ unmute" m:0x0 + c:123 XF86AudioRaiseVolume #MuteToggle "/usr/bin/amixer -q set Master toggle" m:0x0 + c:121 XF86AudioMute
Then (/usr/local/bin/audtool_user.sh) looks something like this:
#!/bin/bash sudo su -c "/usr/local/bin/audtool --$1" $USER
Give that a try (changing your keys/functions to whatever they are on your box).
