Has anyone written a code for using Infrared Devices with VLC? I'd just love to be able to control VLC from accross the room.

Why is the intf=none interface not mentioned?

Why is the intf=none interface not mentioned, it seems that if you want to use NO interface then 'none' is the best ('dummy' pops up a command line window for me on windows) is this just a windows thing? I've found it to be quite handy

On my Linux, "-I dummy" do not show a command line interface and "-I none" give me an error, it can't find this interface module. Using vlc --list-verbose, I can only list those "interfaces" modules:
% command line ~= vlc --list-verbose |grep -B 2 interface

What's with the rick-roll in "FULL LIST"?

the sub section "full list" first entry has qt4 linked to a troll site... whoever created that link should be banned from ALL wiki's PERMANENTLY! no excuse for such vandalism... the site could inject a virus if it wanted to but looks like they're just making money at expense of people who click --the Great and Almighty qazwiz (talk) 04:03, 16 June 2017 (CEST) --the Great and Almighty qazwiz (talk) 04:08, 16 June 2017 (CEST)

We do have a problem with vandalism but that was not vandalism :)
See or
It's just their historical company name (now they are "The Qt Company" with their site at
When you see something strange or wrong on a wiki, you're encouraged to make it better! Don't just leave it! :)
