Sofa Control MPlayerX Script

As some of you know, I use a Mac Mini as a media center for my main TV set. I alternate a lot between different apps to run it — Plex, Boxee, good ol’ VLC, or the fantastic MplayerOSX Extended. Recently, I’ve been playing around with MPlayerX, which is a pretty great media player. My main beef with it being a lack of support in Sofa Control, my main Apple Remote handler.

After long stormy nights of googling for a script, I gave up and created one myself. Well, heavily based off the VLC (built in) and MPlayer OSX Extended sofa control scripts.

Anyway, I figured someone else on the internet other than me might find this useful.

  1. Big thanks fro your script!

  2. The sofa script for download here seems to control MPLayer OSX Extended rather than MPLayerX.

  3. You must have downloaded the script from the 3rd link in the post, please download the script from the 4th link in the post (at the very bottom).

  4. Hi. Thanks. I don’t think so.

    Here’s some key code:

    Description: Open and play movies using MPlayer OSX Extended. Based on the MPlayer script by Hubert Chan, hfchan@engsoc.org.

    ——–

    tell application “Finder” to open application file id “hu.mplayerhq.mplayerosx.extended”
    – above should open MPlayerOSX (if installed) regardless of where it’s located on user’s filesystem

  5. Weird, not sure how that happened. Try again.

  6. Totally different script downloaded this time. This one correctly starts up MPLayerX (not extended). Looks good! Thanks very much.

  7. You’re welcome!
