Did you know that with VLC remote you can convert your phone into a remote for your VLC player. You can play, pause, stop and do a lot more while sitting comfortably on your bed. Sounds cool?? In this post i will show you how you can control your computer with your phone, i mean the VLC player.

First lets see the requirements.

Devices supported:

  • VLC remote supports iPhone, iPad, android phones and blackberry. 
  • There is a similar app available for windows phone 7 too. I will provide the link below. 
Price: 
  • Although there is a free version available for android, you have to pay for it if you want it on other os. The price is 2.99$ to 4.99$ which is not bad for such a great piece of software
Other requirements:

  • Wifi support both in your computer as well as your phone. Most smartphones have wifi so that won't be a big problem


Configure VLC player

  • First open VLC player. 

  • Go to tools-> preferences.Click on all in show setting box at bottom left.

      • Now go to interface-> main interface and select the checkbox 'HTTP remote control interface'. 
       vlc http for vlc remote
      • Lastly click on save. this completes the VLC part. Now you need to setup VLC remote on your phone


      Install VLC Remote in Phone

      Now download and install VLC player from these links corresponding your smartphone model

      • VLC remote Free for android - Supports features like play, pause, stop, volume control, etc. There is also a beta version which has some more feature. Here's the link:
                     Remote control for VLC media player
        • VLC Play for Windows Phone 7 - Paid software which allows you to control nearly every function of VLC from your Windows Phone and some other advanced features like Shutdown/Standby of your computer 

        Configure VLC Remote

        • Launch VLC on your computer. Unless VLC is running on your computer, the VLC Remote app will not work. 

        • Now launch VLC remote on your phone. It should automatically detect your PC and you can now control VLC player

            • If it doesn't autodetect your PC, go to settings, click on "Add VLC server" and type your computer's local ip address there with the port '8080'

            Use VLC Remote

            After you are done with setting up VLC remote using it is pretty simple. You will see all the available controls on your phone like play, pause, stop. Note that the free version for android supports only the basic features. If you want to get more features you will have to buy it. Here is the screenshot of VLC remote in action
