Description : Synchronize playback of various video players via internet
Allows you to watch movies with friends or family at different places
synchronized via the internet.
When a viewer pauses/unpauses playback or seeks within their media player this
will be replicated across all media players connected to the same server in
same viewing session. A chat function is included so viewers can discuss the
movie while watching it.
Technically, it synchronises the position and play states of multiple mpv,
MPC-HC and MPC-BEmedia player instances so viewers' players present the same
movie at the same time.
It is interoperable and available on the upstream web page for other operating
I stumbled across this tool and consider it useful, especially during the
pandemic situation, to support social distancing while friends and family can
still have movie nights via internet.
I've only done a rudimentary test, i.e., more testing and feedback can't hurt.
Feedback on python packaging mistakes is highly appreciated!
At the moment I've packaged it here https://salsa.debian.org/fuddl/syncplay and
consider to collaboratively maintain it in the Debian Multimedia Maintainers
