The ultimate media controller for your Dune player
Dune Media Controller (DMC) is an application to display, browse and play your media library on a Dune player using a Android device. It enables you to browse a dune_folder.txt structure generated by programs like Zappiti, yaDIS, iDune and Musicnizer. yaDIS, iDune and Musicnizer users see below for known issues.
During playback DMC offers full remote control of your Dune player. DMC uses IP control to communicate with the Dune player. So only a Wi-Fi connection to your Dune player is needed. Media library can be located on the SD card of your device or any network location accessible by smb protocol.
At first startup use the settings menu to set the index location. This is the location where the dune folder structure generated by the scrapers is stored.
The help on the settings page contains detailed information. Secondly, fill the player settings with the information of your player.

Although yaDIS is supported it only works best with icon magnification set to 1. yaDIS uses backgrounds containing parts of the icons. For instance, the background contains the border of the media type description on the poster page. Icon magnification does not work on backgrounds. So magnification gives a mismatch between icon and border (background).
yaDIS utilizes page scrolling while DMC uses continues scrolling. I we look at the selection page of yaDIS with the Movie/TV Series pressing left or right on the Dune remote will highlight the current selection.
In DMC you have to scroll up or down to get to the next icon. So this is sometimes difficult when the scroll area small and in between icons.
* iDune/Music playback
The current IP control version in the Dune player is version 2.0. This version does not support starting playback
of music folders or playlists! It will be added to DMC as soon as it available on the Dune player
Use "Create the directory structure for every tracks" to avoid the problem mention in iDune/Music playback section. Play all does not work!
* Dune folder support
There is no full support for dune_folder.txt structure.
There are a lot of dune_folder parameters. Most of them are supported.
