ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

MPRIS_REMOTE_PLAYER

If unset or set to *, mpris-remote will communicate with the first player it finds registered under "org.mpris.*" through D-BUS. If you only have one MPRIS-compliant player running, then this will be fine. If you have more than one running, you will want to set this variable to the name of the player you want to connect to. For example, if set to foo, it will try to communicate with the player at "org.mpris.foo" and will fail if nothing exists at that name.
