I want to be able to stop and/or start a video on my mac from a remote control or my phone. Does this seem like the answer? Switch

iPhone 5s Version 9.3.2 iTunes 12.4.0.119

I have never used that but I do use the Apple Remote (that used to ship in the box with a new Mac), Apple Siri Remote that adds voice control.

Looks like the remotes now are only for Apple TV. If I decide to do it, I will try to pair my iPhone to my Mac.
