Rockbox USB Media Remote

Not about OpenMW? Just about Morrowind in general? Have some random babble? Kindly direct it here.

Rockbox USB Media Remote

Post by owatnext » 18 Jul 2017, 03:02

To circumvent the problem of changing the current song playing without leaving OpenMW, I installed Rockbox https://www.rockbox.org/ on my iPod video. What this does is overrides Apple's default operating system and instead uses an open source operating system. One of Rockbox's features is to function as a USB remote control. So now, I can use my iPod as the media control keys that I lack on my keyboard. I no longer have to leave the game in order to skip a song or to pause the song! It's great.

I know, completely unrelated to OpenMW, but if anyone is interested in an open source iPod firmware replacement, you should definitely check out Rockbox.

P.S., Maybe one day, someone could work on a port to Rockbox for OpenMW :D
