@Nine may be correct depending on how the keyboard is handling the key press.  Windows does support some "standard" virtual key codes for various media functions.

This example works with my HP keybaord which has no special drivers installed.

;Virtual-Key Code list reference - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/inputdev/virtual-key-codes

#include <Misc.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll")

While 1
    If _IsPressed($VK_MEDIA_PLAY_PAUSE, $hDLL) Then
        ConsoleWrite("_IsPressed - Play/Pause was pressed." & @CRLF)
        ; Wait until key is released.
        While _IsPressed($VK_MEDIA_PLAY_PAUSE
            , $hDLL)
        ConsoleWrite("_IsPressed - Play/Pause was released." & @CRLF)
    ElseIf _IsPressed("1B", $hDLL) Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "_IsPressed", "The Esc Key was pressed, therefore we will close the application.")
