    Hi,

    been using this app for a while on both a HTC HD2 and a HTC Gratia. Working fine, but when ever I try to stream. VLC on the Mediaportal PC gives an error that the parameters are not correct.
    Do I have to set something up on the server side for it to work?
    Hope it is just something I forgot.

    Hi,

    thanks for some great work so far. Worked like a charm out of the box.

    I saw somebody else was wondering about port forwarding, and I tried this also but did not get it to work. Is it possible to make this work? At least I would love to be able to view all my MP pictures, and videos from outside the house and of course also to play my music in my phone when I am away...

    All the other stuff with TV, plugins etc is of course also nice to have. I have used iPIMP before but a dedicated Android app is just so much nicer.
    :D
    Keep up the good work!

    If you have that problem too, can it be the Desire then? I just can't get it to work.
    Doesn't seem that anyone else have that problem?

    Hi Fumes,

    very strange. Like you said:

    try to open this in your browser on the pc and then on the phone:

    http://192.168.0.30:8200/info.xml

    you should see something like this

    <Info>
    <ServerVersion>0.2.4.0</ServerVersion>
    <ComputerName>NB-MKOENIG</ComputerName>
    </Info>

    Then open the remote and press menu and verify the ip settings are correct.
    Thats all. I do not think its the phone. Do you have the latest files installed ?
    When you are in the main screen you should see "nothing playing".

    Screenshots and more in the documentation here:

    https://mp-plugins.svn.sourceforge....droidRemote/Release/Using Android Remote.docx

    Maybe it helps...

    Thank you for your reply! I managed to get it working this evening. I reinstalled the .apk on the phone, viola!
    Something must have gone wrong during the first installation. It's the same .apk as I used the first time. I bit odd, but I'm glad it's working now.

    So here is another update. It seems I can now use a dynamic ip to go through my router (port forwarding) I updated the server and the APK.

    04.02.2011
    - dynamic ip possible (tested on xp, make sure add port to firewall settings)
    - playlist support (not 100% yet)
    - skin support prepared (as soon I receive the gfx it will work)
    - add a main screen (layout )for tabs, maybe someone can give a feedback

    So grab the new files..

    kroko

    Thanks, for the update. Unfortunately I did something bad after installing the new .apk which now forces the app to close whenever I try to open it. It seems as though the problem is caused if you go into settings and empty the ip-adress and then press the back button before anything else? Can anyone else verify this? To fix it I had to uninstall and reinstall.

    Also, I did still not manage to export outside of my router. I setup to export port 8200 from my host server computer as a virtual server on the router, but I can not access it through the external ip-adress. Is there any other ports that I need to redirect to the hosting server to make this work from the outside?

    Cheers,

    Fnokke
