9anime or anime sites? suggestion
i saw a thread about watching from anime sources but it wasn't updated since 2015.. so i wanted to bring up the idea again? i love syncvideo but there's nowhere i can watch anime sites with my friend. thanks in advance !
For example if another user claimed ownership of my /tv/ room, and I log in the ownership is set to me and the video gets reset to 00:00. really annoying if you're watching a movie.
Pop Out Chat Element suggestion
I use relatively old hardware so have less room on my screen for elements. If i could pop out the chat element I could arrange windows on top of each other such that I can see more of the video player while still being able to follow the chat, so I thought I'd suggest it in case it would be useful to others as well.
I want to play back files hosted by google video and i think blogpost also. The files themselves are MP4, and the MIME type announces this, but when i try to play it on sync-video, it won't play back because the extension isn't .mp4 or .flv. It would be neat if the server could grab the file headers and determine from there the MIME type. I don't think it's more costly for the server to do it this way.
An example is https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/1c-xcTxfallAHl93TZWuuaduUc5ADUMIutuoEGFH1Rem=m18
There's a chance that the URL redirects to another one, but I don't think it would be costly to server-side follow the redirect down a single level and check the MIME there.
