Syncplay - Watch videos with friends over a distance
Review by on
Watching a movie is always better with friends or family. Syncplay gives you the possibility of watching the same movie with other people over the Internet. If you have tried watching a web video with a friend, at the same time, then you will realize how useful this application can be. Rather than counting down until everybody clicks the Play button, which is also an inaccurate solution, you can use this utility and see exactly what the other people see, in real time and in perfect sync, even if you are on different continents.

Syncplay is available as a freeware utility, for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It comes in a small package and it can be installed quickly. Its hardware requirements are modest, but you may want to see what media players are supported, because the software doesn't come with one.

When launched, Syncplay will display a compact configurations panel, on which you can make the necessary preparations for watching a movie in sync with someone else. This requires selecting one of the available servers in a drop menu, specifying your username and a password, if you want to and a room name. Additionally, you have to choose what media player to use and what video to play. The software provides support for Windows Media Player and Windows Media Player Classic, VLC and others.

Advanced settings can be revealed on the same interface, after clicking a check box, in the lower left corner of the window. The software lets you make a wide range of fine adjustments, for a better synchronization, communication and other aspects. One particular aspect you need to be aware of is the fact that both users need to have the same video on their hard drives.

When your preparations are complete, the main user interface will show up on your screen, along with your chosen media player. The main interface displays a log, as well as a list of connected users. If you want others to connect to your room, you have to create a managed room, which can be done with a single click, and send a unique link to your contacts.

As previously mentioned, the software allows all users to view the same video footage simultaneously. To help achieve this, the software provides a "Ready" button for each user, so that everyone knows when to start the video. Even if a user joins a room a bit later, the video will start for him from the point where everyone is watching.

If you want to view the same video as someone else, you can do it in perfect sync, rather than counting down and failing, thanks to Syncplay's smart functionality.

Pros:
You can watch the same video as someone else in perfect sync. The necessary preparations can be made in just a few seconds, without any effort. The software is free and cross-platform.

Cons:
You may have difficulties when using VLC.
