Can I control the player remotely? Do I need a specific program for that or can I arrange the procedure within Zoom Player itself?
Yes, you can control the application through a wireless keyboard or using PC Remotes. This is actually specified on the developer's page. Access the link below to see what wireless keyboard or PC remotes can you use to control various playback aspects of the application.
