Situation/problem - you have some monster speakers hooked up to a desktop, but want to control the speakers from your laptop in the kitchen/upstairs etc.

Solution - "AHK Remote" inspired idea - modified to work for my personal needs/housemates needs - with (basic) support for youtube, itunes.

Screenshot/Explanation


Requirements:
ITunes.
Slight configuration (Specify location of your songs, ip address of host machine)
Mozilla Firefox (modify if path is different than mine, likely unless running Win 7. 64 bit.)

Source code coming shortly, just have to clean it up a bit.

Here are the source codes as promised.

Server needs to be run on the computer with the speakers (probably best to always leave on w. speakers)

Client needs to be run on the computer/laptop doing the remote controlling

Haha, actually if you can install the server on their comp, and get on their network, yes....

Even better, install the server, crack on to their router and set it to port forward 8571.. connect (from any internet connection), and voila. speaker and music control tongue
