Enhanced chat support for mpv is ready for testing.
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)
- Windows installer: http://syncplay.pl/Syncplay_1.5.2_Beta_3.exe
- Windows portable: http://syncplay.pl/syncplay_v1.5.2_Beta3_Portable.zip
- Linux Tarball: https://github.com/Syncplay/syncplay/archive/v1.5.2-Beta3.tar.gz
- OS X .dmg file: http://syncplay.pl/Syncplay_1.5.2_Beta3.dmg
- Source code repository: https://github.com/Syncplay/syncplay/
- mpv media player: https://mpv.io/
- 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

Note: This open source software has been marked as clean by Jotti (.exe, .zip, .dmg) and VirusTotal (.exe, .zip, .dmg). Syncplay might be flagged as suspicious by some anti-malware systems simply because it is niche software downloaded from the Internet but as we are open source anyone can audit our code if they wish to do so.
