Media Player Control is a mobile remote control for desktop media players. It is specialized for media players only, no server part from the desktop is needed since it uses the media players network API.
Main OSes are Symbian^3 and MeeGo Harmattan, but maybe it will also work on others (never tested).
The application is still in development, and is not full-featured yet. For now only VLC player is supported.
