Syncplay 1.5.2 Beta #3 – Enhanced mpv chat support

Posted by Etoh on January 21, 2018
Uncategorized / No Comments

Enhanced chat support for mpv is ready for testing.

You can e-mail us feedback via dev@syncplay.pl – if you want to comment on the mpv chat interface you can use https://github.com/Syncplay/syncplay/issues/168

Features new in Syncplay 1.5.2:

  • You chat straight from mpv. By default you press enter, write your message, then press enter again. There is also an optional mode so you can start typing straight away.
  • You can how see multiple chat messages at once in a ‘chat room’ style or a ‘scrolling text’ style.
  • New ‘Chat’ tab in the Syncplay configuration dialogue. To get to this check ‘Show more settings’ in the normal dialogue.
  • (Experimental) Enter the commands from the command line interface mode straight into Syncplay by prefixing your message with “/”, e.g. “/u” to undo last seek and “/t” to toggle whether you are in ready mode.

Features new in Beta #3:

  • Fix to issue which meant non-US characters only worked in direct input mode
  • Added some additional Polish characters (thanks sztelke)
  • Those hosting their own server can now specify the chat message length they want using Add –max-chat-message-length (public servers have not been updated yet so still use the lower limit)

Download links:

Known limitations:

  • You need to be using mpv >= v0.28.0 for the On-Screen Controller to be hidden during chat (e.g. to avoid it overlapping with the text input when it is positioned at the bottom)
  • Not all responses to /commands are relayed to mpv and only appear in the Syncplay notification window. If you want to fix this then feel free to make a Pull Request!
  • When running your own server you must specify a maximum chat message length through a command line option, e.g. –max-chat-message-length=125

Known issues:

  1. A few dialogues look at bit weird on OS X. This should be fixed when we move away from Pyside1. Discuss the move away from Pyside1 at #152.
  2. If you are having stability issues with mpv on Windows then try running it with the command line switch –opengl-backend=win. If you want streaming to work with mpv then you will need the latest version of YTDL.
  3. If you are using MPC and pauses are ignored then it is probably because you are using madVR. If you are have set the video filter to madVR then you will need to revert to the default filter or disable the ‘delay playback start until render queue is full’ option within madVR. Oh, and if anyone is using MPC or MPC-BE then avoid filenames with % marks (#163).

Syncplay 1.5.0

Posted by Etoh on November 16, 2017
Uncategorized / No Comments

Syncplay 1.5.0 is now available! The two headline feature are:

  • Text-based chat support – The new chat feature allows you to write messages in Syncplay to others in the same room. You need to be connected to a server running on Syncplay 1.5.0 such as the official public servers. Chat messages are sent in plaintext so Syncplay should not be used to share private or confidential information. You can disable chat on your server with the –disable-chat command line switch.
  • Mac OS X support –  Many have requested better OS X support and a number have made significant contributions to move us in that direction, but massive thanks to albertosottile for finally getting us to a point where we have a solid .dmg file that people can use. Please let us know whether or not this works for you (and your version of OS X) by e-mailing dev@syncplay.pl.

  • * Increase retries and reduce retry delay (suggestion #122 by alok0)
  • * Introduced a maximum username limit of 16 characters (#160 – thanks to everyone who part in the poll)

Note: This open source software has been marked as clean by Jotti (.exe & .dmg) and VirusTotal (.exe & .dmg). Syncplay might be flagged as suspicious by some anti-malware systems simply because it is unsigned software downloaded from the Internet that is not widely used. If you’re concerned by this then just run the Syncplay source code directly as it is open source software. 

Changelog:

  • + Initial chat support [based on #90 by abhsag24]
  • + Initial proper support for OS X [thanks to alby128  et al.  – based on PRs #143#145#148#150, and fixes issues #60, #116, #89 #142#146, etc]
  • + Added about box (alby128)
  • * Manually changing playlist item now also seeks to start of file (suggested in #138 and on IRC)
  • * Various GuiConfig tweaks to increase usability (e.g. only ask for password on non-Syncplay.pl servers and don’t ask for media file path by default)
  • * Increase retries and reduce retry delay (suggestion #122 by alok0)
  • ! Fixed Unicode issue that occurred when adding files from unknown folders that contained UTF-8 characters (PR ##133 based on issue #131 by DarkNikGr)
  • ! Fixed issue when running mpv using –msg-module (reported in issue #134 by Felhamed)

Known issues:

  1. If shuffling moves currently playing item then it will switch to the new file in the old position but not rewind. Not sure if it is better to rewind the new file or stick with the old file, but either way the current behaviour is clearly incorrect. Discuss at #153
  2. Files are not rewound in VLC when manually change files (so only rewinds for auto-advance). It would be helpful if we we had someone come forward to take responsibility for testing and improving VLC compatibility as currently.
  3. A few dialogues look at bit weird on OS X. This should be fixed when we move away from Pyside1. Discuss the move away from Pyside1 at #152.
  4. If you are having stability issues with mpv on Windows then try running it with the command line switch –opengl-backend=win

  • Improved compatibility with VLC, mpv, MPC-HC and Unicode
  • Additional Russian messages translated by Corwin
  • …the full Syncplay 1.4.0 changelog is available at: http://syncplay.pl/changelog/

Note: For the new shared playlists feature to work you will need to tell Syncplay the directories where it should try to find the files. Please ensure the media directories you specify do not have way too many files in them or it will take too long to scan.

Syncplay 1.4.0 (RC2)

Posted by Etoh on July 03, 2016
Uncategorized / No Comments

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.
