RemoteVLC is an external library which allows you to
communicate and control VLC Media Player remotely from the
processing environment. Processing has memory issues in handling videos. Often artists
are found using MAX for video installations. Thus this
library will help them to control HD videos irrespective of any length
without any memory issue. Right now it allows to control VLC
player both in local machine and over a network. The goal is to
eventually expand this library to enable more advanced options, such
as opening media files from the computer, etc.
This is a alpha release, which means the library could (and probably will) change in future releases. Please send feedback or feature requests!
Download RemoteVLC version 0.0.1 in .zip format.
