Apple Remote and other input devices

  • One of my friends told me that it would be cool if he could use the Apple Remote to control my app from his couch (lazy bugger). But, it did get me thinking.

    To my knowledge there isn't an easy way for Qt to receive inputs from the Apple Remote or other devices, and the fact that the Apple Remote API (unofficial) is only available in Objective-C doesn't help very much either. So, I guess my problem now is to attempt to get these devices interfacing with my app, but I have no idea where to start.

    Anyone have an idea on what I can do?

  • Either use C/C++ APIs or translate existing Objective-C API to C++. I think that nothing else can be done here

  • I see, sounds like it's not gonna be one of those trivial things i can have done in between coffee breaks. I'll look into it though. Thanks.
