I watch movies with VLC running on my laptop, and want to play/pause using my Android.
All VLC remotes that I have found have a moderately-sized Play/Pause button:

VLC remote

My use case is that I watch a movie in relative darkness, and I only need to pause/play whenever I need to go to the door or grab a drink. I don't need to change the volume or fast-forward or open a different movie or anything. On the opposite, I want to avoid these features as I might press them by mistake.

So, I want a HUGE Play/Pause button.
Ideally, no other buttons on the whole screen.

Must be gratis, dark background.

  • With "VLC remote" you mean VLC is running on your computer, and you want to control it from your Android device, I assume? If so, while waiting for the perfect answer, be welcome to check my list for that: Remote control VLC. VLC Remote seems to offer a widget coming pretty close to your needs. – Izzy Jul 4 '16 at 9:57

    @Izzy: I hope it is clearer now. VLC Remote is actually the one screenshotted above :-/ – Nicolas Raoul Jul 4 '16 at 10:12
  • Uh – you didn't say that. Have you tried its widget? I've never used any such app, so I cannot say for sure – but one of the screenshots at Play look like the widget might at least fit better (not perfectly, unfortunately). – Izzy Jul 4 '16 at 10:16
