    Default Clicker (BETA) - A remote control app for your WDTV Live SMP

    I've created this thread to avoid further hijacking bbf16's WDTV thread.

    • You'll have to enter the IP address of your WDTV (auto discovery would require native app development and more effort)

    • Some services (like Hulu) don't allow volume to be controlled. Let me know if you find others.

    Here's the description that I've submitted for BlackBerry World:

    Clicker is an easy to use function rich remote control for your WDTV Live Streaming Media Player (SMP). Clicker let's you get the most out of your WDTV Live SMP by controlling it with your Blackberry Playbook. Enter the IP address of your WDTV and take control of your entertainment with this exceptional remote.

    Main features:

    * navigation buttons
    * media controls
    * volume slider
    * numberpad
    * quick and complete access to online services
    * keyboard entry
    * remote power off

    To follow application development, make suggestions or get support, follow us on Twitter (@PlaybookClicker).
    Here are some screenshots. Let me know what you think.

    I like the Services screen even though I only use Netflix.
    Do the 12 Services buttons on the main screen work individually or is it like one big button that opens the services screen?

    Could those 12 buttons be customizable (sp)? Like assigning the services you use most. Is it possible to pick up the Favorites from the WD TV device?

    Do you want a tester? I am a programmer but haven't attempted anything for the Playbook yet. Most of what I do is database front ends for work.

    I am not aware of a way to request favorites from the Wdtv and would definitely add this functionality if it is there.

    And being webworks, portability to bb10 should be fairly easy...
    Thx for creating the app, Wolf

    The portrait mode was a nice surprise.

    Is it possible to add shortcuts to WDTV menu items as available items for the 12 service icons on the right? Videos, Music, Photos, etc.?
    I know these can be programmed to remote keys in the WDTV itself. I don't know what WD has given programmers access to.
    I have the GPL Code package here but only used the parts related to themes.

    In portrait mode, people with smaller hands may like the ability to have the navigation buttons closer to the right or left side of the screen rather than centered.
    A shortcut to the web interface could be useful too, although there isn't much you can do from the Playbook other than add RSS feeds that seldom work.

    None of these suggestions should be taken as criticism, just suggestions.

    Again, very nice.
    Thanks

    Does the app work with the WD TV Live Hub?
    I don't own one but the iOS app seems to work for both.
    If yours does it should be included in the description so Hub users know.

    This app will let you control your WDTV Live SMP media player (and maybe the WDTV Live Hub) with your Playbook. Thanks for the feedback.

    Thank you guys for testing!

    I've shut down the download link. I'll let you know when it's up on BlackBerry World. Any thoughts on how much to list it for?

    Thanks for giving us the opportunity.

    I like it but, WD gives away the app for Android and iOS, so probably $0.99.
    I don't know if you would have enough interest for a $1.99 price.

    Have you approached WD about buying it?

    Good luck to you and thanks again for your work.

    Trial with limited features (Free) and then a full version for .99. More downloads if cheaper vs more. This day and age everyone wants something for nothing.

    This is awesome! I've been looking/wishing for this for 2 years! Does it work with the latest standard firmware or do you need that "other" firmware (BRAD)?
    Instant purchase by me if so.

    Worked with stock firmware for me... No need to modify your wdtv :-)

    I think you are mixing up your WD TV boxes.
    This is for the newer WD TV Live Streaming Media Player (SMP) and the Live HUB. There is no WDLXTV (brad) firmware for these, yet...
    If you have an original WD TV Live or Live Plus this remote app will not work. I tried.

    Thanks Angus. So... Does anyone know if this app will work if I update the firmware to WDLXTV-Live – The extreme upgrade? At least that would give me web access I think. If not, maybe it's time for a new player.

    It won't work with the older boxes no matter what firmware is on them, as far as I know.
    I have an old WD TV Live Plus with WDLXTV on it and a new WD TV Live SMP.
    I don't know why you installed the WDLXTV firmware but I can tell you the newer WD media player is pretty good.
    It's easy to set up movie sheets, TV show info.
    Costco seems to have the best price, $87.99 - $97.99.

    I guess we shouldn't hijack this thread with WD TV talk.

    Thanks again. I haven't tried the WDLXTV firmware yet BTW, just curious. And I think if I were OP I'd be happy if the app worked on more boxes, and that this topic stayed on top!
    Cheers bud.

    Cheers,
    Hello fellow canuck, I wrote the app for the wdtv live smp. It's a bonus to know that it works for the live hub too (thanks for confirming dray451)..

    I'm willing to update the app to work with the original wdtv (with or without custom firmware). I'd need some help testing because I don't own a wdtv live or live plus. Do these models have a web interface?

    Not by default, but check this site out...
    B-RAD » WDLXTV-Live – The extreme upgrade
    I'm more than willing to try this on my standard WDTV Live to check the web access if you'd like.
    Thanks for the feedback sir!

    I have both a WD TV Live Plus and a WD TV SMP and I'm also a Canuck.

    I just tried your app again with the Live Plus. I have the WDLXTV firmware installed.
    When I connect I get a Username / Password dialog. The default for these is wdlxtv for both.
    It seems to accept the login / password, then I get a 404 error.

    The web remote for WDLXTV uses a .php file and javascript.

    While this app sounds nice, you'd have to pry my copy of WDLXTV from my cold, dead hands.

    Seriously, nothing comes close to the level of functionality, especially when you factor in the integrated ruTorrent client. As someone who lives overseas, and thus has no access to major streaming media providers, the ability to queue up a bunch of torrented TV content and then have it download directly to my WDTV's attached 1TB hard disk, is an absolute godsend. Perhaps not as convenient as Netflix, but darn close. Combined with EZTV.it, WDLXTV is a real lifeline for the ex-patriot in me.

    Nice job Angus. I might give this a go myself as well. No harm in trying. Curious to know what happens with various browsers...

    I'll check out the WDLXTV web interface and see if I can update the app to be compatible with it ... I'll definitely need some testers because I don't have this device
