JRemote: Control volume with side buttons on iPhone
« on: October 23, 2017, 06:57:50 am »

Hi,

I would like to know if it's possible to control the volume of MC (PC) with the side buttons of my iPhone using JRemote.

I can do it with Spotify app when paired with the PC app and I think it's a very cool feature.  You don't have to unlock the phone to adjust the volume in a party.

Nice idea, that and an integration into the lockscreen would be very nice indeed :)

Are you talking about playback on the phone or when using it as a remote? Because it's not working for me to control playback on a computer.

Right, playback on the phone. I got excited! Maybe it already did that? Have not checked on the home system yet. Will do this evening.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I figured it was better to bump an old one rather then add a new one.

In my case I have JRiver running on a Linux server. I use JRemote on the iPhone or iPad to send music to my Yamaha receiver (using DLNA). The volume slider in JRemote works to control the volume on the receiver.

It would be great if the volume buttons on the phone also controlled the volume. Is that even possible? The side volumes do not work for JRemote (when used as a controller) even when the application is in the foreground.

The hardware volume keys do work on an Android phone.  Probably also on the iPhone and iPad, but when you're using DLNA, the Renderer controls the volume.  That's the Yamaha in this case.

You might be able to use DSP Over DLNA to do it.

Like I said, the volume slider in JRemote on the iPhone controls the volume as well. That slider sets the volume on the yamaha.

Unless something recently changed, it is not possible to respond to the hardware buttons in iOS apps.

Yamaha's MusicCast app does it on iOS (and iPadOS).  The volume controls on the iPhone can control the volume of MusicCast's playback (e.g., to either a generic DLNA Renderer or to a speaker such as the WX-010).

The attached image shows the settings page within the MusicCast app.  Note the "Control volume with iOS buttons" option.
