  • Hello, could you create a snap package for Linux? I’m not tech sawy but ditchd Windows for reason and those snaps always work with single click from Snap Store.

    I have never gotten those Appimages to open!! (maybe it’s my pc though).

    • We tried Snap packages but were unable to get them to work on all systems, and so now we just provide AppImages instead.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I’ve now updated the link. As discussed in the GitHub issue, it is currently in a .zip file rather than an .exe file to resolve issues people were reporting with the installer executable.

  • I want to play with my girlfriend remotely.
    I normally watch 4k videos. But she network speed is not fast enough so I want she download 1080p videos.
    My question is: can we syncplay these two different video files(they are the same movie)?

    • So long as the videos are in sync (e.g. 5 minutes in shows the same frame for both) you can both play different files and it works fine.

  • Hello,
    recently i’ve switched to Windows 11 from 10 and it seems that not a single version of the app can open/boot. It installs properly, but that’s about it. Any idea why that might be?

  • It appears that the server .exe is missing or has that feature been moved from the WindowsOS for hosting?

    • The server was removed due to false positives. You can get it from the 1.6.8 build or the 1.7.0 build though.
