Note: This open source software has been marked as clean by Jotti (.exe, .dmg, .zip) and VirusTotal (.exe, .dmg, .zip). 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. 

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).

2 Comments to Syncplay 1.5.1

  • Can you give more characters for names, or allow users who set up the room to set the character limit?

    • Yes, that is planned. I thought there needed to be a strict limit on names so that chat messages in mpv would not need to wrap around, but then I figured out a way to get proper wrapping when displaying messages on mpv so the character limits can be relaxed in 1.5.2 Beta 2.
