Control Windows Media Center with your Windows Phone

Control Windows Media Center with your Windows Phone

Oishiiunko has created a very useful application that allows you to control Windows Media Center on your PC from your mobile phone.

The Windows Media Center Remote Mobile Control app uses VMC Controller software to let you control basic functions, such as menu navigation, volume and playback control. As well as seeing what’s playing, simply by glancing at your phone.

All you must do is establish a connection with the media playing PC via ActiveSync (Bluetooth or USB) or Wi-Fi before you gain full control over your music and video without having to move more than a finger.

The application currently only supports WVGA devices but is frequently updated, and available in this thread.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles. If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about those articles, feel free to get in touch with me via PM using the URL above.
