GOM Remote turns your mobile device into a remote control for GOM Player and GOM Audio. By means of a desktop and a mobile app, GOM Remote connects your mobile to your PC, allowing you to control these popular media players remotely via WiFi or a mobile connection. GOM Remote runs in Windows, and the mobile app is available for Android and iOS.

Installing and configuring GOM Remote is a pretty simple task. Once installed, you only need to open the mobile app and follow the instructions to pair your devices. This is quick and is done by means of a 4-digit PIN code.

Once everything is set, you can use your phone or tablet to browse through your PC folders and find the movies or songs you want to play. The remote controller gives you the options to pause, stop, adjust volume, set the screen size, and even add files to a playlist. It also comes with an integrated remote mouse control, so you don't need to walk to the computer while watching a movie. It includes a snapshot tool that instantly saves screenshots of your movies, and the possibility of setting subtitles.

The PC version of GOM Remote does not have many configuration options, but you will be able to protect the app with a password, choose a default file path for your videos and audio, and also set a port.

If you're already a user of GOM Player and GOM Audio for Windows, an app like GOM Remote is a must-have. If you haven't tried any of these players yet and are looking for alternatives, they will surprise you with their capability, solid performance, and extensive format support.
