Still a great alternate for VLC remote
Can use the same Helper App VLCR uses, just remember when it asks for a password, use "vlcremote", sybu will remember it. Sometimes I use this after I've loaded or edited my playlist in VLCR, it loads faster. Works well with VLC Amigo too. I just like the available skins Sybu has, the other apps dropped the skinning after VLC 2.0 came out.
These apps are all good, I don't remember if this one is free, but the skin packs are worth it.
Works great so far!
Downloading this was long overdue. I got tired of having to get up and walk across the room to pause videos all the time, so I did a tiny bit of research and didn't want to pony up $5 for the other, different paid alternative. They provide great, straightforward instructions so setup was easy. No complaints here!
Easy, works, free.... Awesome
Easy setup which comes with a video so you can follow along. Does what it says. Great to use when you wanna mirror your Mac on Apple TV then play something from VLC and have a remote so you may put down your laptop or step away from your desktop.
