Separate computer for eJukebox control vs playback?

So.. with all the new inexpensive tablet computers, is there an option to have the eJukebox front end run on one PC and control playback on a remote PC?

I know I can use a remote desktop application to do this, but this would be a nice option.

yes the EJukebox "2Web" feature lets you control remotely from any web browser. For the full EJukebox interface Remote Desktop will work or if it is a Win7 tablet you can install EJukebox directly on it.

So, the answer is no... it doesn't allow a true front end that can control a remote player. Guess we're left with a remote desktop solution, which is not ideal.

yes the main interface only works on the windows machine it is installed on. you can connect remotely with 2web and select songs, control playback and listen in via web browser but it is different from the main interface.

for the future do you think it would be better for me to update the 2web interface to make it more like the full interface or to make it so a 2nd EJukebox main interface can access the 1st installs database?

Great question...
I like the idea of being able to point to a database (local or network). And have EJ control a remote instance. This could allow the use of a shared database across a network ie. //computer/EJdatabase/ or caching the info locally. Then using the actual program to control the 'other' machine via the 2web hooks.

Unfortunately, this is only useful under windows machines.

Given the influx of tablets, upgrading 2web is a more compelling use case. I use VNC right now, but the biggest drawback of VNC is that its slow and only 1 person can interface at a time.

If we could find a way to cache most of the elements, that could make this really fast and pretty. HTML5 anyone? ;P

We are about to migrate to HTML5. Any notes on this? I mean if it is already being considered?
