Client/server to synchronize media playback on many computers
Syncplay synchronises the position and play state of multiple media players
so that the viewers can watch the same thing at the same time. This means that
when one person pauses/unpauses playback or seeks (jumps position) within their
media player then this will be replicated across all media players connected to
the same server and in the same 'room' (viewing session). When a new person
joins they will also be synchronised. Syncplay also includes text-based chat so
you can discuss a video as you watch it (or you could use third-party Voice over
IP software to talk over a video).
