In my initial post, I mentioned I’d release my mobile development coursework, but lamented at the deadlines coming up. Exams are still to go, but yesterday was dissertation hand in day, hurray!
I had tried out remuco at Christmas and really enjoyed the experience, while it had some design issues, it worked. Unfortunately the project officially died quite recently, so I decided to write my own.
In a nutshell, it’s a remote media control server, using the MPRIS2 DBus interface, and a client application. With it, the user can control any MPRIS2 capable media players that are running on their PC, and in some cases (e.g. Banshee) launch the media player from their Android phone. See the video demo I made as part of the course.
I’ve uploaded the project to GitHub, of course, it is Free Software!
