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.
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.
