|This page describes how to control VLC from an iPhone.||Other "how to" pages|
There are various options to control VLC from the iPhone. These broadly break down between methods that require a seperate application to run alongside VLC and applications that communicate directly with VLC using the http interface
Options that communicate directly with VLC
- It is possible to use the http interface directly from Safari although is is somewhat cumbersome as it isn't designed for such a small screen.
- Hobbyist Software have produced two native applications which allow control of VLC from within a normal iPhone app. They also provide setup helper applications for Windows and Mac OS which simplify the process of enabling the http interface in VLC.
Options that communicate via an intermeditate connection
- Intelliremote is a free iPhone client for Intelliremote's PC Server (produced by Melloware). It requires the PC client to be running on the same Windows PC as VLC.
- EventGhost is a paid iPhone client for the Event Ghost open source home automation server for Windows. (The iPhone client is also produced by Melloware). It requires the PC client to be running on the same Windows PC as VLC.
- RedTouch is a paid iPhone client for an ethernet-connected infrared transceiver produced by IRTrans
