Media Player Controls

Is there a method/way to control a 3rd party application such as a media player?
for instance rainmeter can control itunes, vlc, windows media player and other media players using the NowPlaying plugin. making next,previous,play/stop and other functions accessible and i’m wondering if the same capabilities can be done with unity.

Can we access iTunes/VLC player while in the unity app, so that a user can pause/skip a track on their music player while in game?

i hope that made sense & thank you.

bump for spotify

For anyone searching for this. I found this article about exact same thing. It is done for Win Forms, but can be easily adapted for unity.
