The new Shared Playlist feature means anyone can add a file to a joint queue, and when you get to the end of one file it will automatically load the next one and rewind.
Fixes in RC2:
- ! Fixed bug where playlist where a client might erroneously change playlist selection when updating playlist if it had previously been updated by a different user in a way that moved the position of the currently playing file in the playlist.
- ! Fixed bug where VLC would not play a newly loaded file
- ! Fixed bug where Syncplay/VLC would sometimes crash if you tried to run with an old version of VLC (reported via Twitter by @coreyp0wner)
- ! Updated syncplay.lua to make it clear that for VLC sometimes the file needs to be placed in the lib64 folder rather than the lib folder (addressing #103 by abhsag24)
NOTE: For the shared playlist feature to work, the server must be running the latest version of Syncplay.
