I am using VLC as my video player - it is great!
Now I am getting fussy.
I have found various Apps that seem to allow remote control of VLC from phones. This page lists more than I expected! https://wiki.videolan.org/Control_VLC_f ... oid_Phone/
Titles include VLC Mobile Remote (which looks like my favourite), VLC Remote PRO and VLC Shake Remote.
When I read the detail, it appears that they target VLC running on a PC, not the RPi
So the question is - has anyone had success with any of these? Or any others?
Other idea was to use some form of dedicated remote control (like a TV or universal remote) and use an IR receiver on the RPi. Has anyone gone that route? Or is there a commercially available one (like the one for Kodi)?
Any constructive suggestions will be gratefully received
PS the way I am using VLC is to use anRPi3B+ in my study and use uPnP to "find" my Humax 5000T pvr in the lounge and play normal recordings that I have made from Freeview - works REALLY well!
