ReMoot project is a pseudo-universal remote control wrapper.
ReMoot is written in Perl and is a command wrapper for a number of media programs running on GNU/Linux systems and possibly other *nix systems as well. Usally this kind of remote only works with one app at the time, ReMoot can control all of the apps listed below.
The ReMoot package consists of two executables: i) "remoot", which is a command-line program that is typically executed either in a shell or using quick key-bindings; and ii) "remoot-remote", which is a proof of concept graphical frontend to remoot written in Tk. It's possible to write a web based frontend or use it remotely through ssh.
The official version of the package is maintained by Andreas Wallberg and Joel Berglund. The package is licenced under the Perl Artistic License (please see http://www.perl.com/pub/a/language/misc/Artistic.html and http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/index_html#PerlLicense for details).
