    Hey Steve,



    I guess so.
    Just go to MEDIAPORTAL - WifiRemote and click "Download". This should get you the mpe1 package.



    I uploaded a demo client app to our Google Code page. Please have a look at the first post for more information.

    Hi Shukuyen,
    That's the file I downloaded. It's a zip file with an XML and a subfolder called "Installer {Copy File}". No mpe1 file.

    Cheers
    ...Steve

    Try with another webbrowser... There have been reports that sometimes downloaded mpei files are saved as zips.

    Or just rename *.zip to *.mpe1 and double click it. Worked for me with other plugins...

    Thanks guys - renaming to mpe1 fixed it.

    Now just trying to find the android app aMPdroid for my Galaxy Tab....:)

    Cheers
    ...Steve

    Sorry everyone - I can't find a downloadable aMPdroid app anywhere - does it exist yet or is it still in development and not yet released? Can someone post a link to the downlaodable app for Android?

    If aMPdroid not available yet, is there another app that will work for the time being?

    Tried the windows demo and that couldn't connect to the server (MEDIACENTER on port 8017).

    Cheers
    ...Steve

    aMPDroid hasn't been released yet. DieBagger will release a first version this weekend (as he wrote). I wait for it too :) Krokos android remote works well. Maybe you can try it.

    Do you have Bonjour installed (see plugin config) and is the WifiRemote plugin running on your MediaPortal? Set MediaPortal logging to "debug" and check the MediaPortal.log file after you started MediaPortal ... You should see something like that:

    Code (Text):
    1. [WIFI_REMOTE]  Started!
    2. [WIFI_REMOTE]  Now accepting connections.
    3. [WIFI_REMOTE]  Bonjour version 214.3.13 found.
    4. [WIFI_REMOTE]  Published Service via Bonjour!

    Top marks. This is great. and long awaited.

    My only gripe is that you are using a JSON, JOBject string in the protocol, which i'm sure is because of compatibility with Couchpotatoe.

    As I am using this to communicate with my Philips Pronto (using Prontoscript) which does not support JObjects, I am having to write a rather complex parser.

    I think an XML option would be cool to make parsing much much easier - unless I am missing something pretty fundamental.

    Nice one....:)

    [UPDATE]... OMG... soooo easy. I found a Javascript parser for JSON strings from douglascrockford on Github.... included it in my Pronto code and you wouldn't believe it, but it worked first time..... I take it all back. This is just as easy as an XML parser. Well done !!

    It might still be worth thinking about also adding xml-based communication in the future...

    Glad it worked out for you Martyn36. ;)

    With XML you get some overhead and in most languages it's a little more cumbersome to parse. That's why I went with JSON in the first place.
    If there is any good reason for XML in the future we can of course think about adding that ...
