"AirPlay" type implementation

First off, I'd just like to say thank you for all of the incredible work you guys have done.  I have been using media browser since version 2.0, and MB3 is just fantastic.  I will be contributing shortly.

 

The iOS app is great, and I've thoroughly enjoyed using it on my iPhone 4s.  The remote control functionality is useful for scrubbing through movies and TV shows quickly.

 

I have noticed that browsing a large media library on my phone is much faster than using a remote and MBC/MBT.  I think it would be great if I could browse to a video on my phone and then tell it to play in MBC instead of my phone, much like the way airplay works.  I would assume both devices would need to have the same user logged in.

 

So the "workflow" would be like this:

  1. Start MBC/MBT
  2. Open app on my phone
  3. Browse to a movie
  4. Hit "Play on device" and select my MBC/MBT session
  5. The video would automatically start playing in MBC/MBT

 

Thanks again for all your hard work,

 

Charlie

While I'm not sure if MBT supports it yet, you can do this with MBC so I'm sure that MBT if it doesn't already will support this.

Really, I'm going to have to mess with that to see if I can get that to work.

 

Yeah, my bad on that one. Silly user error. I don't know how I hadn't seen that button before.
