Is there some way of getting my apple remote, which controls itunes and DVD's, to work with browser streaming content like that from iPlayer and Netflix on my iMac?


Also, can it be used to control keynote presentations?

    It can definitely, and out of the box, control Keynote.


    Then there are apps available that let you customize the remote's functions. Basically, whatever you can do with a key on the keyboard, you can then do with the remote. But you might lose its standard functionailty e.g. for Keynote, not sure though.

    Google for such apps, but keep an eye on compatibility with your OS X version!
