I have been really enjoying using BT for its ability to easily just create a Vibe playlist in a few clicks so have been using it as my main Music Player the past few weeks since i picked it up, it pretty fantastic for just throwing tunes together to suit a mood your are in.

I listen a lot as i going about the House on Bluetooth Headphones but they won't effect the controls on BT to skip songs, pause/play, Vol up/down ect like i have them do on Foobar2000, Spotify, Youtube ect. (Sony WH-1000XM2 and Sony WF-1000XM4)

Also is there an Android App or even Infa-Red Remote i can buy to control this from the Couch ect.
(I have an Andriod App that works with Foobar2000)
Really do need some way to have some remote functionality??

    This depends on Media Key support, a sore issue with beaTunes. It's on the very long todo list. Unfortunately, I won't be able to address it any time soon. :-/

    Ah Ok no worries.
    Guess i just have to export the playlsit Beatunes creates into Foobar2000 when i want to wander about and skip songs ect using Bluetooth Headphones.
    Would be nice to have though when you have worked your way down you list :)
    Seriously this is becoming my default way of listening to Tunes now from my PC, its great.
