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: I hope it is clearer now. VLC Remote is actually the one screenshotted above :-/

  • 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).

You can do it with MATRIC Android app. It's free when you use it for up to 6 buttons and it's full customizable. Check it out https://matricapp.com/
