Hey guys and gals - this is my first time I have posted here
Hope you are all doing well. I have been a huge fan/supporter of Microsoft since I was of a very young age, 7 years later I am still a fan and supporter.
I have been involved with MS for the past 5 years, and the past year just finished working for them as a software dev and infrastructure engineer (1 year paid internship in the UK) I hope to work for them of course as an MSFT. (FTE)
Right - I've made an application that allows you to remotly control WMP on your computer through the power of your SPV using either usb or bluetooth (really designed for bluetooth)! It was a project that I thought would be easy but found it to be a bit challanging dealing with TCP/IP communication
Please, tell me what you think. It's nothing fancy, still in beta and there are a few bugs. I have shared this with some colleagues and they pretty much are "woow'd" at this, which makes me happy!
I hope you can make this run on your SPV. It was designed for the typhoon (C500) but dont see why it should not work on C550.
Instructions are enclosed in the attachment. Any suggestions/bug reporting/feedback - please reply in this thread.
Would be cool if one of the channel9 guys could do a review of this or a video or something to show how powerful our MS technology is which can run on an MS OS powered mobile device.
This app I have created was really designed for you to be able to remotly control WMP (Windows Media Player) from your SPV to your PC. It works with bluetooth and USB (designed for bluetooth really)
It can also connect using GPRS (the internet)
Say, you have a party or whatever and you have a huge collection of audio/video on your PC and your speakers are blaring out loud from the inside of your house and you are outside. You dont wanna have to go all the way inside/upstairs to change the playlist/tracklisting. Do it from the power of your SPV with this app!
Feel really good about yourself? Just been out and about to enter your house/flat? Want to greet yourself in with a great track? Do it with this app - simply connect, request and play!
Sum up: This app I have created allows you to remotly control WMP from your SPV to your computer. It was tested with WMP10 (should work with WMP 9 too!)
Soon, it will have the ability to pause/stop/rewind/forward when I have embedded WMP into the application that sits on the server.
Try it, let me know what you think - again, its still in beta! Sorry for rambling on, im too excited...
Take it easy;)
