You can use acme to assign the play, next and prev keys. Or (if you know
the keycode of these keys) you can use xmodmap:

For example:

xmodmap -e "keycode 151 = XF86AudioStop"
xmodmap -e "keycode 159 = XF86AudioPlay"
xmodmap -e "keycode 162 = XF86AudioNext"
xmodmap -e "keycode 164 = XF86AudioPrev"

By the way is xmodmap also used by acme.
