I finally did phase 1 of putting proper entertainment in front of the exercise machines:

1. Install gnu.org/software/gmediaserver/ on my PC and wrap a shell alias around `gmediaserver -p <PORT> --profile=ps3 <FOLDER>` on my PC.

2. `ufw allow <PORT>` on my PC

3. `Settings → Services → UPnP → Allow control of Kodi via UPnP` on my openelec.tv/ box.

4. Install these two packages onto an old phone for a remote:

f-droid.org/en/packages/de.yaa
f-droid.org/en/packages/org.xb

Further ideas for when I'm feeling like working on it again:

1. Write a custom web remote for my existing Audacious Media Player setup and install github.com/masmu/pulseaudio-dl

(audman exists, but appears to intentionally make design decisions I don't like.)

2. Write a Firefox extension and helper daemon to expose open YouTube tabs to DNLA for on-the-fly youtube-dl-ing and playback.

3. Combine all three prior options into a really polished web remote to supplant my use of Yaacc.
