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).
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.
You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either openSUSE_Leap_42.3 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
Snap can now be installed with the following:
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
Tumbleweed users also need to run the following:
To install syncplay, simply use the following command:
