[App] Remote control MediaPortal/HTPC from Android (or iPhone, maybe WinMo...)
I've written an app I currently call "Andramote" to remote control my MediaPortal Home Theatre PC from my Android smartphone. Here's how it works:
- Small, lightweight C# "webserver" sits on your HTPC, runs on startup
- Navigate to the ip/hostname/port of your HTPC with your Android/iPhone
- You are served with an HTML5 app with buttons that are attached to AJAX events that, when sent back to your HTPC, press buttons/etc on your HTPC.
I did this because my remote broke and I needed a solution.
It is a bit messy and very minimal on functionality right now so I'm wondering how much interest there is as well. This could easily work with WinMo, too, just that WinMo does not have an HTML5 browser so separate markup/etc. would need to be added.
Edit: Apparently there's a very advanced and feature-filled project here on the MP forums:
Although I notice it does require Apache as this is just a run-and-go solution (currently a console app). I've messages the creator and am considering abandoning this in favor of his app.
