I wanted http remote control but mpris should suffice for the moment over ssh
I listen to the main borkstationX64 attached to the 5.1 system and i'm lazy moving all the time to change the songs
so i need a solution to change it from my netbook ...
git clone git://github.com/mackstann/mpris-remote.git ./mpris-remote [playing 5631/10835] @ 4:54/7:50 - #6 artist: Metallica title: Am_I_Evil album: Garage_Inc_Disc_II [repeat off] [random on] [loop on] ./mpris-remote next
cool stuff : there are amarok , foobar interfaces for qmmp in the works :P
why do i need ssh -X for mpris ? , maybe because of dbus ...

tip: cp mpris-remote /usr/bin/mpris
