is there a working android remote control for foobar2000?

hi
i have searched around the forum , many topics are pretty old , and when i try to add a reply I got a warning , the topic is too old

I'm running foobar2000 portable now and installation version  , i would like to play  , pause and skip songs
if i could browse my music collection would be even better

I download foobar2000 controller on my android phone and the components in its homepage for foobar (outdated) , created rules , disabled firewall and antivirus , nothing , couldn 't use it

I download MonkeyMote for android and it's component , nothing again , can't connect to my windows computer , i have tried w10 and w7 with firewall disable /enabled

are these components outdated ?
or seeing i use the last foobar2000 version ,are they no compatible?
any feedbacks are really wellcome
best regards

I can control foobar2000 in the internet browser of my android phone, with the Beefweb Remote Control component. I can also browse my library.

In the browser of my phone, instead of the address http://localhost:8880, I put the address of my computer, for example http://192.168.1.11:8880 .

Hi Terence , I will try
but it's sad I can't find any application to control foobar2000 ,it's my favorite audio player
there are other applications that can control other freewares and they work very well
thanks

I use FoobarCon Pro, it's not free (there's also FoobarCon , it's free), it's for Android phones, and I can control Foobar, browse the library and do many other things.
I also used Foobar2000 controller (1 year ago), and it worked for me. A few months ago I tried MonkeyMote it didn't worked for me, but I only tried once, so I'm not so sure, maybe I did something wrong, because the app is updated constantly, so it should work.

The outdated Foobar2000 controller still works fine for me
foobar2000 plays music
