The project aims to enable the user to control his media, like most other remote controllers for android:
- Browse content on the computer
- Add content to playlist
- Playback control
Beside this, the system makes it possible for you guests to add media to the playlist, but not control the playback, thereby making everybody at you party able to have a say in the music theme.
The client communicates via a TCP connection, the protocol is quite simple and will be released as well along with the code for the server and the client, my hope is that other people will like it so much that they want to make new clients and servers for other platforms, (currently only vlc under Linux is supported for the server and only android for the client).
