MACH F: Software

I'm currently working on the software for the MACH F. I had already written something, but that made use of the RealMagic remote control via the standard receiver -- that would only work with specific hardware, and it wasn't really elegant.
Yesterday and today, I've rewritten the stuff I already had to use WinLirc. With some cheap receivers (that you can easily build yourself) and pretty much any remote, you can now control the application. It took a bit of fiddling, but now you can configure the WinLirc buttons in pretty much the same way as you can in BSplayer.

Right now, all it can do is play a videofile from disk or CD/DVD, but I also have support for DVD and music (both MP3 and internet radio) planned as well. Maybe also a photo viewer...
