This Remote app allows users to control playback of nearly any video file type using VLC on a Mac, PC and now Apple TV. You’ll have access to all playback controls, plus cover art, equalization, and playlists. VLC recently added Apple Watch support for even faster access to play/pause controls. This app is particularly handy if you already use VLC or have an extensive library of video files. Note: must be used in conjunction with VLC’s player app for Mac/PC.
Rated 3.5/5 stars all-time.
