WifiRemote is a process plugin for the popular opensource mediacenter software "".

It publishes a Bonjour Service on your local network which allows clients (for example an iPhone or Android app) to list all found MediaPortalMediaPortal installations and connect to it.

Those clients can then send commands like up, down, ok, play, pause and so on to the plugin which relays them to MediaPortal - effectively enabling any kind of device on the network to be used as a remote control (requires a client app for the device). In addition, a connected client receives information about the current state of MediaPortal.

Using WifiRemote

If you are a developer and want to use WifiRemote for your application, you can find a list of all supported commands (client -> htpc) here and a list of all messages (htpc -> client) here.
