Kindle MPlayer Control over SSH (WiFi)

Hey!

I've created a tiny little application in python, with it you can control mplayer on your Kindle wirelessly from your computer over an SSH connection. I've included a readme file with instructions to get everything working. You'll need Jailbrake, usbNetwork and MPlayer (Launchpad is optional, but recommended).
I've tested it on Ubuntu 11.04. If you use Ubuntu, you don't need any special dependencies, everything is there (Python and GTK3), just extract the application somewhere, execute controller.py and it should work (you can also invoke a python control.py command over it from a terminal).

Here is a screenshot of the application:


Hope you find it useful

Cheers,
Antario.

Do you use it only for playing audio, or do you show video with it as well?

@rkomar:
Since it just controls the MPlayer installed on the Kindle and the Kindle can't play video due to it's e-Ink screen, it can only play music.

@thomass:
You're welcome

I'm gald you like it I'm still trying to improve it. I have to figure out to effectively read the SSH output of the Kindle, 'cause the read method hangs up when no output is coming, thus freezing the GUI. Anyway, I think track information and progress bar are still possibilities. I'm working on them
