Hi. I have just installed the newest version of J2ME client on my Nokia E52 and anyremote 6.3.1 from Ubuntu (13.10) repositories.
When I run anyremote with mplayer config:
anyremote -f /usr/share/anyremote/cfg-data/Server-mode/mplayer.cfg -s bluetooth
and connect to it from my phone, a file manager window opens instead of mplayer control buttons. Other config files work properly, e.g. Banshee. The same thing happens when I run all-in-one and select mplayer from there. Mplayer version: 2.0-554. What might be the problem?
This is expected behaviour.
Firstly it needs to choose file which will be played by mplayer, right ?
Oh, I see. Is there a way to use the remote control for mplayer session that is already running?
You can choose "Back" menu item in file manager to show control buttons.
But be sure mplayer was started with "-input" command line parameter:
mplayer -input file=$HOME/.mplayer/fifo
because that option is used to control mplayer.
Thanks Mike. In fact, if you start mplayer with this parameter, anyremote automatically opens mplayer control buttons instead of file manager.
