Rockbox USB Media Remote

To circumvent the problem of changing the current song playing without leaving OpenMW, I installed Rockbox 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
