Controllers that work with mmhmm

Here is a list of wireless clickers and controllers that have been verified to work with mmhmm:

Note: We've heard of connectivity issues with users running macOS Mojave, we recommend updating to macOS Catalina or later.

How to connect your controller

Note: Bluetooth controller compatibility is not natively supported in mmhmm for Windows at this time, however, Windows does support using a controller as an input device. Try using a 3rd party app such as reWASD to remap your controller's buttons to keyboard shortcuts that work with mmhmm for Windows. 

Step 1: Connect your controller via Bluetooth

Depending on what model you're using, pairing your controller to your computer may vary slightly. Find support for pairing in this article for Mac, and in this article for Windows. No matter the case, you should initiate pairing via the controller (read your controller's manual for the exact steps to do so.) Once pairing has been initiated, open your computer's Bluetooth preferences pane, find your controller in the list, and connect to it.

Step 2: Open and update mmhmm

Make sure mmhmm is open and updated to the latest version. To check what version you have, click 'mmhmm' in the toolbar > About mmhmm. To update, click Check for Updates in the same menu.

Step 3: Have fun

The app should be ready to go right out of the box.
