Does --extraintf=http work on android?
I'm trying to connect to the VLC player on Android to get the current media position and the name of a file that is playing (and later tell VLC to open that file too, but I'm at least starting with getting the needed information).
After a long search, I've come up with an idea of using
--extra-intf=http for this. It allows to connect to the VLC via a browser. On the Desktop VLC player (
Desktop(browser) <-> Desktop(player)), it works (that player is connectable via a browser), However, on Android when I go to
Setting -> Advanced -> Custom libVLC options and put there:
--http-host=192.168.1.100 --http-port=8080 --extraintf=http --http-password=abc
I can't connect in neither of those ways:
Desktop(browser) <-> Android(player)
Android(browser) <-> Android(player)(using localhost
Do those interfaces simply not work on Android?
If so and anybody can suggest some other solution that I can use instead (even if that solution involves having to develop an android app which talks locally to VLC on the same android), I would be extremely grateful. So far, I wasn't able to find what kind of interfaces are even available for automation on android if I want to control the VLC Android player through a script.
