WmoteServer

Introduction

Wmote lets you control media files on your computer using your mobile device. To use it, you will need free WmoteServer running on your computer, as well as Winamp (2.xx or above).

No configuration is needed for wmote. After you install WmoteServer make sure to remember to unblock main listening port if you have firewall enabled. Wmote will automatically search for all PCs on your network and detect those with WmoteServer running. Additonally, both server and client software have some optional advanced configuration options (see below).

You can also stream all your music directly from your PC using your home wireless network and W-streamer for iPhone/iPad/iPod which is available from the Apple Store. Music is streamed in the original format so WiFi network must be used. It will not work well over a 3G network due to the volume of data traffic. If you use remote WiFi hotspot you will need to specify domain name (in case of dynamic IP you can use some free DNS service) and do some basic port forwarding (default port nr. 28700) from your router to your desired computer inside LAN.

Supported file types: mp3, m4a, wav*, flac*

wav and flac files are not streamed directly in their native format. Conversion to mp3 is used prior to streaming.

For advanced users there are some useful options that can be configured on the server or on the client side.
