I see a free application in the App Store but the reviews say it doesn't work.

I have a Snow Leopard MacBook that I hook up to my TV to watch videos sometimes. To control the video and volume, it'd be nice if I could do this from my iPhone. How could this setup be done?


Something like VLC Amigo (free) or VLC remote for iPhone would probably work!


I use Remotebuddy. It has controls for VLC and much, much more. You can trial it for 30 days to see how you like it.

HippoRemote is awesome for controlling VLC, iTunes player, and the Mac.

    What exactly makes HippoRemote awesome? – bmike Nov 22 '12 at 15:04

Have a look at Sybu Data Remote Control for VLC

It works perfectly with OSX and iOS 5 & 6, easy to install, NO ads, and FREE.

A must have App if you have an iPhone and use VLC
