Remote Control Settings

Remote Control Settings

The Remote settings tab allows you to set options for controlling MediaShout presentations using a Microsoft PowerPoint compatible remote control or iOS device (iPad, iPhone, iPad Touch). Toggling between Remote Control mode and Normal mode gives the operator full control of the MediaShout presentation.


Configuring Remote settings


To open the Remote Settings tab, click Settings tab > General Settings > Remote.


iOS Device Settings


The iOS device settings allow you set up an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch for use as a remote control.

The following steps are outlined in the settings screen:

  1. Download the MediaShout Remote app from the iTunes store (iTunes account required). 

    The iOS app requires a WiFi connection on the same network as the master computer. The app is a fully-functioning presenter and viewer. More information can be found at http://support.mediashout.com/categories/20062159-mediashout-remote-app.
  2. Select Enable MediaShout Remote Server.
  3. (Optional) Select Enable Presenter Mode

    Presenter mode allows the presentation to be controlled from the device. You can add a password to prevent unauthorized control of the presentation (recommended). The password is then entered on the device to allow it to work.
  4. (Optional) Add a password for viewer mode to prevent unauthorized viewing of the presentation on a device. 

    Viewer mode allows anyone on the wireless network with the app installed to view the output to the screens. (They cannot edit, stop, or change the presentation.) This allows an iOS device to be used as a confidence monitor for the worship team.
  5. (Optional) Change the port setting, if needed. The default is port 80. Windows 10 users: if you have connection issues, switch from port 80 to port 8080.
  6. (Optional) For additional help, click the iOS Remote Troubleshooting button.


Hardware/USB Remote Settings


By default, when Remote Control Mode is toggled on (Settings tab > Playback Mode > Toggle Remote), it remaps the right arrow keystroke as F9 (Play Next Cue) and left arrow keystroke as F7 (Play Previous Cue).

Note: Remote Control only needs to be toggled on when using a non-programmable USB remote and the keystrokes have been remapped in this settings box.

These can be changed in the settings screen to any of the following combinations:

  • Left Arrow/Right Arrow
  • Up Arrow/Down Arro
  • Page Up/Page Down
  • Back/Next
  • Left-click/Right-click
