Fixing Spotify Media Keys Issue in Mac

There can be an issue specific to the Spotify media app for Mac where the Prev/Next media functions will not work. 

To fix this issue, please follow these instructions:


1. Download and install Karabiner (https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/)

*If you're using Sierra, you'll need the updated prototype version of Karabiner here: https://github.com/tekezo/Karabiner-Elements

2. Open Karabiner and click the Misc & Uninstall tab

3. Click Open private.xml. This will open a Finder window

4. Edit private.xml with your favorite text editor

5. Copy the following XML and use it to replace all of the XML in your open copy of private.xml:  
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<root>
  <item>

    <identifier>wasd_media</identifier>
    <autogen>
      __KeyToKey__
     ConsumerKeyCode::RawValue::0x0012, ModifierFlag::NONE, ConsumerKeyCode::MUSIC_PREV
    </autogen>
    <autogen>
      __KeyToKey__
      ConsumerKeyCode::RawValue::0x0011, ModifierFlag::NONE, ConsumerKeyCode::MUSIC_NEXT
    </autogen>
  </item>
</root>
 

6. Save and close private.xml
