Added PC View And Control

Now Supporting VLC

The App is ahead of the app catalog (coming out soon).. The price of the server is $4.99 and includes 1 year of upgrades. To purchase see: Media Remote Site

Why this app not the other ones in the catalog?

  • We Created both parts of the application palm pre and pc application so better integration between them.
  • We allow pc mouse and keyboard control.
  • You can view your pc desktop and control.
  • Support for the server because that is what you are purchasing. (That is the sticking point for most users
  • We dont hide the fact that you need another application installed!
  • We have a richer interface.


This application lets you control your media player on your pc from your pre. The application has two parts one is an application that runs on the pc (currently windows only) and listens on port 63342 for controls from the pre.

Unfortunately I am a java and c# so other will be slow but I will try to do others, If you would like to help making a server let me know. If you like this please donate - My time unfortunately is not infinite I do not want to have to be forced to charge people to use this, or future apps:

The zip file contains the server app. Just extract the zip and run the exe when you want to control your media player. The IP address of your computer on your local network should be shown. You may have to open firewall ports for 63342 or port forward on your router if you dont want to have to be on wifi in your home, also you would have to find your extrenal ip to come throught a router not on wifi. 

-- See the developer site to purchase the server...
