This is awesome!

well done :good::good::good:



Only one suggestion:
Is it possible to add support for the Chrome Extension "Sway.fm Unified Music Media Keys"
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/swayfm-unified-music-medi/icckhjgjjompfgoiidainoapgjepncej

Many Streaming Services, such as 8tracks.com or just simple youtube-Playback work within the browser.
This extension allows the usage of the Macs Media Keys with those "in page playbacks".

It would be great to have an option to send the media controls just to the OS, without any other appliction selected. Then the aforementioned Chrome extension would capture the input and redirect it. I guess that would be the easiest way. :)


Thanks for your work!


PS: I liked the Tutorial. Easy and really helpful!

Awesome app, here's some stuff to make it perfect:

- Auto connection on app start.
- Only one button for Play/Pause would be good for some apps.
- Some applications has wrong capitalization.

Wow! great extension! I'm gonna look into it. :)

Note taken, :). Hopefully will be added on the next release :) (I had autoconnection in mind also, and is half baked)

I can't seem to get it to work with any app. It clearly connects, and I can control the volume, brightness, and the other non-app specific functions, but not anything else. I've mainly been trying to get it to work with MPlayerX, but iTunes and Quicktime also did not work. Any ideas?

QuickTime right now is broken and I don't know why... itunes and MplayerX should work... On the next release I'm planning to implement some sort of loging system to make debugging easier...

Stay tunned, but I'd avise to restart computer maybe (idk, I'm just especulating) ... wich OSX version do you have?

Really nice app! As I read in a comment, I'd love a fast forward/rewind option, instead of the skip by chunks (or if it's easier, a "go to *time*"). It can be implemented like the swipe to fast forward/rewind in the MacBook touchpad. Other than that, it's awesome (tested with VLC so far).

First i just want to thank you mushrom for this innovative tool for our beloved android devices and our macs :D.

Ill be using this mostly for Spotify, it works well but i cannot pause the player i can only play it. Other than that works great, i can raise the volume up and down and adjust brightness as well.

Im running a Macbook late 2009 edition with 10.6.8 SL if that helps at all. Thanks again :D

Works great. Thanks so much.

Is there any way to control the mouse or keyboard as well ala Unified Remote?

Also a fast forward and reverse button for MplayerX as well.

Thanks.

I will look into that :) thanks for your support and feedback!

Even with the pause button? Anyway should be fixed in the following update. Your welcome! Thanks for your support!

I'll look into MplayerX ff and rw buttons, mouse and keyboard input i think is imposible, but I'll think arround :) thanks for your support!

Awesome exactly what I have been looking for, would be great if you can add Plex support. :)

Plex is unlikely to happen, I think is out of the scope of this application, also there are some apps already!

not working for me. Maybe because I am on college network and this is prevented somehow?

If they block ssh connections (Wich probably do) then you cant... You can allways create a hotspot by the phone or the mac eitherway and connect.


MplayerX problems are because the only suported version is the latest one! And quicktime fix is comming in following update :)
Also powerpoint coming! :D

    I should be the one thanking you for your patience though. much appreciated!

    That's weird, maybe the password? try to execute something like
    sudo pwd
    and enter the same password you are using...

    to input the ip you have to separate with dots..

    answer with the exact inputs you are using. (dont put the password, but I'll assume you are using the same you use with sudo)
