How can the MediaMonkey Remote be improved?

Windows client

A remote that runs on other Windows computers, so that you for example could remote control your MediaMonkey computer from your laptop.

    I would love this - I echo Jim Kelly's excellent comment below; I'm dying for the ability to control/modify music that is playing throughout the house to the granular depth that we want, from my study, or my wife's laptop, or my daughter's room, without having to run to the machine; one set of playlists accessible from anywhere. It would also make it possible to have a head-less music server that is running MM, not twonky (wonky), or plex (fisher-priced and inflexible). Please please please.

    Or remote control MMW from a Web browser. That way you can do it from any device no matter which platform you have handy at that moment (ios, Mac OSX, Windows tablet, other PC or even chromebook)

    Perhaps change the title to "Windows PC Client" or "Windows Notebook or Desktop Client" so we don't think you are referring to a Windows phone . . .

    Wondering why this is useful?
    Your music PC is connected to your amp and lovely big speakers, all driven beautifully by MediaMonkey for Windows. But you are sitting in the sun with your Windows Notebook doing some work nearby. Being able to Remote Control your music system utilising the (big) display already in front of you sounds like a great idea to me. Maybe I am missing something here, but each time I look at linking a second MMW system to the same data it all gets way too confusing and dangerous. Please correct me if wrong!

    Thanks,
    Jim Kelly
