Media Keys Activation

If you use macOS 10.14+ and want to control your video and audio playback with the media keys (F7, F8, and F9), you should grant access to Elmedia Player to control your Mac using accessibility features.

At the first start of Elmedia Player after the welcome window is displayed you will be asked to grant access to the app.
