Add STP MP3 Player to Logitech SetPoint

After deciding to use STP MP3 Player (a small, resource-friendly MP3 player that resides in the system tray) instead of iTunes or WMP or WinAmp, I found my Logitech MediaPlay mouse’s SetPoint software was not properly controlling the new software choice. I decided to take action.

1.  in STP’s Settings->Advanced… window, under General in the top left, select, “Emulate WinAmp,” at the bottom of the list.

2.  where you installed SetPoint, find, “players.ini,” and add the following to the bottom of the Players:

     STP=cmd,STP.exe,Winamp v1.x,xxx,xxx,40045,40046,40047,40044,40048,0,1,STP
