it'd be nice if guests could 'flag' a video in the palylist, that'd be able to give feedback for the room owner ( say by having a list you can sort by deletion votes) and also enable them to enter a percentage of current viewers to auto delete (and a toggle to enable / disable that function)
Chat tabs/ higlighting suggestion
it appears to me that system lines of chat can start to add up, so either different tabs for system / chat, highlighting when your name was used, or a darker / colored backdrop for chat messages in general would be cool
File type suggestion
Possible support for .mkv (tons of anime uses this, also have multiple sound tracks for languages) or .AVI(not native web supported, but flash clients are able to decode and transcode it) ? Some people use links from different sites than YouTube to sync movies. And .avi support would be amazing!
I wanted to look into a service to replace online radio and it be online visual radio, I googled and your site came up and I thought it was a great implementation. I have played around with it a lot now and there is one feature I think would be good...
When I am not around to attend the video, it cuts me off and makes someone else the person that is able to delete items in the playlist. Is there a way to get it to be owned by one person always? So that if I leave it at night before I go to bed for example, it doesnt let a random person come in and take over. This is a feature I would even pay for!
Great work guys really. It is a service that could be the future of live TV too!
I've been listening to a tons of music with friends and it seems like Sync-Video doesn't like Last.fm scrobbleing even with the extentions and everything. It works with you tube and other things but I don't think it picks up sync-video. I would certainly love if something was changed so Last.fm scrobbleing worked with sync video
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.
About Saving Playlists suggestion
Whenever you first load a playlist into a new room, the save-option doesn't hold on to the name, So I'd like to request, either that it does retain the name, or even better have a Update saved playlist or something along those lines
Little Bug in the FAQ error
Hello sync-video Team Smiley
while reading the FAQ i found a little Bug:
What does !, @, ~ mean?
! - Operator of the room (slected by owner)
i bet you mean selected and not “slected” Smiley
I know, just a little bug, but still feel free to fix it Smiley
Bug when creating lobby. error
For two months (minimum) when a lobby is first created and a video is added, the video shows a still for the creator, but is playing for anyone who joins.
I Frequently make lobbies for friends and wait for them to join before playing the video, but as soon as they join they are generally 10-20 seconds into the video without me realizing it because it isn't playing for me.
