The PC remote control software Vectir can be used to control various PC applications with a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or infrared remote control. The remote control software supports a variety of software programs including Winamp, iTunes, Microsoft PowerPoint or Windows Media Player. Vectir can also be used to control various system settings that include volume control, remote, reboot or shutdown commands, using the wireless control as a mouse pointer but also player controls for the supported media players.
The main Vectir interface is divided into a configuration pane and a setup pane. The configuration pane is displaying commands that have already been created either by the remote control software or by the user. These commands can be configured or disabled easily. The setup pane on the other hand is being used to create new commands that become active after creation.
The PC remote control software comes with additional options to setup mouse controls that come in handy during presentations or keyboard macros. The developers of the remote control software have created a compatibility list on their website that lists several devices that are supported by Vectir and some that are not currently.
