Syncplay 1.2.9a – another mpv bugfix

Posted by Etoh on August 27, 2014

Syncplay 1.2.9a is available from

It is the same as 1.2.9, but addresses some compatibility issues with more recent versions of mpv and fixes the label of the pause button.

Highlights of Syncplay 1.2.9:

  • Improvements config window with greater access to control Syncplay functionality (e.g. OSD messages and rewind/slowdown thresholds).
  • Loads of fixes and tweaks, to make Syncplay run better, especially for VLC users.
  • VLC and mpv stay open after all files have finished playing, so so you do not have to re-open the player. (This was already the case for MPC-HC)
  •  If a user pauses while the leave message is displayed, it now states both that someone left and that someone paused. (Really useful if someone has “Pause when user leaves” enabled!)

See for the full list of changes. Thanks to all who contributed!
