7 Comments to Syncplay 1.6.5

  • New update is broken. Constantly adjusting speed to slow down for other members. Never had that problem before.

  • The SHA1 hash listed for the Deb Package does not match the download.

    The page says:
    SHA1: 754472f68e4f77c591eebd5d2dd50aea1e3cc9af

    Hash of Deb Package:
    SHA1: 9f207e3dc9046c527293cd3a3bd9613763afaa2a

    The Github release page ( instead lists an MD5 hash:
    MD5: 1713bac7b38dff0f3bde29b392b22d44

    This MD5 hash *does* match the downloadable Deb Package. This download page may need to be updated.

    Thank you for including a Deb option!

    • Thanks for letting us know. The page has been updated to use the MD5 hash. I’ve also updated the link to go to the .deb for the final version of 1.6.5 rather than the beta.

    • This is the issue described in the readme (just with a slightly different error message) so please refer to that. The reason you see this message is because Apple does not issue software signing keys to small open source projects.
