With this app installed, you can use the little white remote control that came with your MacBook Pro to control Spotify playback from across the room.
Spotify Mac Remote is a plugin for Spotify that allows you to use your Mac’s IR remote control & multi-touch gestures to Play, Pause and change tracks.
The next, play/pause and previous buttons work exactly as you’d expect, the volume buttons control the system volume and holding the menu button quits Spotify – in case you want to use Frontrow.
Please note that when there are updates for Spotify you may need to download a new version of the plugin.
To uninstall the plugin just quit Spotify and then open Finder and browse to Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > SIMBL > Plugins and delete SpotifyRemote.bundle
If you’re having any problems or you have any questions feel free to get in touch!
Oh, and thanks to IOSpirit for the remote control code.
