  • Do not ask anymore to “Press enter to exit” after closing mpv when Syncplay is used from its CLI (issue #238 raised by alxpettit and resolved by albertosottile)
  • Embed darkdetect (GitHub, BSD-3-Clause) version 0.1.1 in the project vendor folder
  • Some files in the repository are now released under the MIT license, while the repository stays on Apache 2.0. This is explicitly stated in the header of those files. At this moment, this exception applies to README.md and travis/appimage-script.sh.
  • [macOS] Upgrade PySide2 to 5.12.3, using a bottle created in our custom tap.
  • Upgrade qt5reactor to version 0.5
  • [Windows] Upgrade py2exe to version 0.9.3.0
  • [Windows] Upgrade PySide2 to version 5.12.3
  • 1.6.4a: Fixed bug in 1.6.4 whereby prompts for further information in the configuration window sometimes resulted in the window closing rather than displaying the error (issue #240 was in initial release of 1.6.4, raised by TETYYS, resolved by Et0h)
  • 1.6.4a: [macOS] Fixed issue with information prompts resulting in incorrect configuration window height (763406b by albertosottile)

Advice: If you use public servers, avoid ports 8995 and 8999

You can use any public server so long as you are all on the same one. However, the majority of people currently use ports 8995 and 8999 which means that for a more stable connection you should probably go for ports 8996, 8997 or 8998. On the sidebar to the right you will see a highlighted server selected at random from the lesser-used servers.

New Syncplay logo

Posted by Etoh on February 27, 2019
Uncategorized / No Comments

We are pleased to announce that Syncplay 1.6.3 will adopt our new logo for Syncplay!

The new Syncplay Logo by Catlinman The new Syncplay Logo by Catlinman
The old Syncplay logo (left) alongside its replacement (right)

According to the new logo’s author Catlinman:

“My goal in mind was to create a new version of the logo that embraces a more modern and clean design while retaining and accentuating the original wing design. Furthermore I wanted to include some sort of play symbol to give the whole design a much easier visual understanding. One of the challenges I faced was that the logo had to work at even tiny resolutions of 16×16 pixels while also looking good with large word mark. The final design incorporates all of this!”

As long-time followers of the #Syncplay IRC channel can attest, Catlinman put in a lot of work not just creating the initial logo but also working with Syncplay developers and users to respond to feedback by generating alternative designs and explaining his design decisions.

See Catlinman’s Imgur post for more about the evolution of the new logo which includes some of the alternative designs he produced as part of our discussions. You can also see some other mock-ups from the design process as part of our Facebook post from February 2018. A big thanks to him for all his work on this!

We did explore including additional elements in the logo, but in the end this hampered the ability of the logo to look the same at different sizes so in the end we decided to keep it simple. The addition of the play logo provides a clearer link to our core function, which is supporting people to play media. While the logo has been modernised we have retained the concept of the wing design from our original logo. Do the wings represent Hermes, known to the Greeks as a god of synchronicity and to the Romans as a god of communication and information, or is it simply an old-school anime reference? That one, dear users, we will leave open to interpretation…

The fact that the final design ended up looking a lot like the initial proposal is a testament to Catlinman’s good design instincts, and we hope that even if you find the change to be a shock that it will grow on you over time. We are also grateful to Devon who helped us explore some other logo options and to everyone who provided feedback on the logo as it was being developed.

Syncplay 1.6.0

Posted by Etoh on September 30, 2018

  • Transition to Python 3, and move Windows builds to PySide2-Qt 5.11.1. (Issue #169 by FSMaxB with input by albertosottile, xNinjaKittyx, and et0h) resolved by PR #191 (by albertosottile with support from xNinjaKittyx, wiiabo and et0h) with fix by PR #200 (alxpettit)
  • The Linux requirements have now changed, so you’ll now need Python 3.4+or newer and either PySide 1.2 or PySide 2-Qt 5.10+. If you wish to figure out precisely which PySide 2 dependencies people will need then let us know! Python 3.5 is required for Windows developers
  • As a result of the transition the newer Unicode characters are now supported on all operating systems (so long as you are on PySide2!). Time to find out some emojis! 😃
  • Introduction of anonymous server statistics (#196 by albertosottile, with code review by Uriziel and et0h)
  • Code syntax refactoring (#195 by xNinjaKittyx with code review by albertosottile and et0h)
  • Removed obsolete encode/decode calls (#198 by sometoby)

Is anyone you know having trouble connecting to syncplay.pl?

Some users have recently reported problems connecting to our server. Anyone experiencing problems are advised to try changing their DNS server to a non-geographic server, e.g. 1.1.1.1 (Cloudflare DNS), 8.8.8.8 (Google Public DNS) or 208.67.222.222 (Cisco OpenDNS).

Syncplay 1.5.6 Beta #2

Posted by Etoh on July 29, 2018
Uncategorized / No Comments

Python 2 is being officially retired in 2020, and so it is important for Syncplay to begin the transition to Python 3. For Windows this currently means Python 3.5, but for other platforms we now support Python 3.4-3.7. Beta 2 fixes some bugs introduced in Beta 1 and adds support for anonymous statistics collection for the server – see https://syncplay.pl/guide/server/ for instructions.

Note: Due to changes in how the Syncplay configuration file is saved you may have difficulty reverting from Syncplay 1.5.6+ back to Syncplay 1.5.4 or earlier. If you care about this then backup your syncplay.ini/.syncplay file prior to testing out Syncplay 1.5.6+. Going from 1.5.6+ to 1.5.5 should be fine.

P.S. The server guide has been updated by albertosottile to explain how to run a server on macOS: https://syncplay.pl/guide/server/

Syncplay 1.5.6 Changelog:

  • Transition to Python 3, and move Windows builds to PySide2. Python 3.4+ is now required to run Syncplay (for those not using pre-built versions of Syncplay), and Python 3.5 is required for Windows developers. (Issue #169 by FSMaxB with input by albertosottile, xNinjaKittyx, and et0h) resolved by PR #191 (by albertosottile with support from xNinjaKittyx, wiiabo and et0h)
  • Code syntax refactoring (#195 by xNinjaKittyx with code review by albertosottile and et0h)
  • Introduction of anonymous server statistics (#196 by albertosottile, with code review by Uriziel and et0h)

Python 2 is being officially retired in 2020, and so it is important for Syncplay to begin the transition to Python 3. For Windows this currently means Python 3.4 (which still supports PySide1 and py2exe), but for other platforms we now support Python 3.4-3.7.

Note: Due to changes in how the Syncplay configuration file is saved you may have difficulty reverting from Syncplay 1.5.6+ back to Syncplay 1.5.4 or earlier.

P.S. The server guide has been updated by albertosottile to explain how to run a server on macOS: https://syncplay.pl/guide/server/

Warning: There are two known bugs in this release: File sizes being reported as ‘???’ and erroneous ‘not ready’ messages. A second beta is in the works!

Syncplay 1.5.6 Changelog:

  • Transition to Python 3. Python 3.4+ is now required to run Syncplay. (Issue #169 by FSMaxB with input by albertosottile, xNinjaKittyx, and et0h) resolved by PR #191 (by albertosottile with support from xNinjaKittyx and et0h)
