    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if such an Mac OS application exist:
    My situation:
    I have a Mac Mini, both with Plex and Kodi (XBMC) media players installed.
    It would be great if there was an application who would start up and present me a list of predefined apps to start.
    In this list I would add both Kodi and Plex. With the Apple remote control I would be able to start either app and this will be presented full screen. Does such thing exists?

    I used to add Plex to the start-up apps of my Mac. This way when I powered the Mini it would automatically start Plex. Great! But with the use of Kodi I would like to be presented both options. It would be completely usefull if I could make this selection with the Apple Remote.

    One option of which I am thinking of is Apple's own Media player (the black screen with options to start pictures, video's or music). If I would be able to add both Plex and Kodi to it, it would solve my problem. But I am not sure if that is possible.
