MPC Remote v1.0

Hi everybody!

The site has been down for a couple of days now due to us transferring the domain over to a new provider and thus hasn’t been pointing to the right location. Happy to see that everything’s fixed now though!

I can announce that I’ve completed the work on my first working version of MPC Remote which I’ve set to version 1.0 because it is stable and fulfills the features and goals I’ve set. This version will be submitted to the marketplace soon (as soon as Microsoft can fix a bug in the submission page) but you can download it today from my blog here if you happen to own an unlocked phone.

Shows how the main screen looksFeatures

  • Clean new interface (not very exciting in terms of flashy ‘yet’)
  • Buttons to control playback, volume and seeking (currently implements the five-second seek back/forward)
  • Main page provides the information you need
  • Settings page allows for setting the host and port of the machine running MPC

Head on over to the project page for download

autsmuxer – It’s basically mkv2vob for Linux/OS X/BSD!

For all you people out there running Linux, OS X or BSD (basically Unix-based systems) there’s now a great tool for converting those (illegally) downloaded movies and series to a Playstation 3 friendly format! It allows far more than my pre-alpha ps3m2ts tool that I developed oh so long ago like selecting which formats you want to output to (ts/m2ts/bluray/avchd/demux), what A/V tracks to use and subtitle support.

Quote from the forumpost:

This is effectively MKV2VOB for UNiX based systems. (minus the GUI.)
It is entirely automated once called with desired options and switches, and will handle all known exceptions of MKV, including those with compressed headers or corrupt audio streams.

I suggest you try it out and tell me what you think of the tool as I currently am unable to test it myself.

Huge thanks goes to Michael for giving me this tip!
