VLC control via remote control?
I suppose it wouldn't be extremely difficult to map keybindings in VLC to remote commands and then use something like irexec to interface with VLC.
However, I run MythTV, and typically launch my video player (mplayer) from within MythVideo, and use native LIRC support from mplayer; so I'm not sure how irexec events would interract with MythTV (whereas with mplayer it's native support so I don't have to worry about that).
So, in a nutshell:
Does VLC have native LIRC support? If so, can anyone point me to a doc on how to use it? If not, has anyone used a remote control with VLC through something like irexec, and do you have any pointers?
