VLCi (VLC Interface)

A free Flash Interface for VLC HTTP remote

VLC Interface was primary made to control VLC on a computer standing as a Hi-Fi installation from any computer on the same network.

Download:

(right click to save file on your disk):

- vlcinterface.swf

- vlcflash.html


Installation:

Copy the SWF and the HTML files in the “http” folder of your Videolan installation. eg: c:\Program Files\VideoLAN\http\

Once copied , if VLC is configured with its native HTTP interface, you just can start using your new Flash interface from the VLC HTTP remote host using your favorite web browser. eg: http://localhost:8080/vlcflash.html

You can also directly use the SWF file by executing it from everywhere on your disk, but without a copy in VLC installation the interface will not be shared with other computers on your network.

VLC playlist actualy must be organised as following to work : general folder > artists folder > albums folder > titles


Future:

- better visual interface

- full playlist

- debug

- new features


History:

Filenames with upper case were not delivered by VLC HTTP interface on Linux, so filenames were renamed with lower case only.

Many Thanks to Greg who found the bug.
