IF you have an older VLC player < 2.1.0 it does not have password support you can use this:
>>Dropbox download here for older VLC versions 0.6.0<<

BUT I highly recommend to update your VLC player instead to the newest version

I will try to test.

There is one problem, I guess it is related to language.
In Finnish we use comma as decimal separator. Maybe this is the reason, that I have comma also in the numeric keypad when I try to fill the IP address. I can use copy feature to fill the IP address.

I have to get the right settings to get connected, have to learn a bit.

Maybe it could be solved by splitting the text box in four. Pushing Enter on the first field would move the cursor to the second one etc.

By the way, it might be a good idea to replace the text switches with icons from the media player app.
Check out the Sailfish media components:
Code:

Had a play around with it this morning, connection worked perfectly, signals for play and pause worked as if thee music was on the phone itself!
I fear you have made me more inclined to go back to bed in the morning for my comfy headphones music hit!
Only thing I've noticed so far (aside the wip cover) is that once you click play and pause, it will make the button inactive until the other is pressed. This means to replay the track you must pause it, while it's not playing, and then play.
Loving this app so far, keep up the brilliant work!

Implemented saving and loading previous settings so you wouldn't need to type in the settings each time you open the app.
I'm just not sure if to add a button or pulley menu to load the previous settings, what do you guys think?

Couldn't get it at the moment because of how functions are set-up but I'll try to get it done some time soon.



Also updated to the newest version, download and enjoy
Might want to uninstall the old one before installing the newest version
