Syncplay version: 1.6.5 release 86
Python: 3.6.8
Pyside2: 5.12.3
Qt 5.12.3

If you send, or recieve a message that has a double quote " in it, {\\fscx0} is added to the message.


  • " produces {\\fscx0} "
  • x " y produces x {\\fscx0} " y
  • x " y " z produces x {\\fscx0} " y {\\fscx0} " z

This might be an issue with mpv, but I'm not too sure because of this line of code and because {\\fscx0} doesn't appear anywhere in MPV's repo.

I have also found this issue in libass: libass/libass/issues/185 which may be related, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for reporting this, it should be fixed now. The reason Syncplay uses {\fscx0} is because that is how we get get long messages to wrap properly. See mpv-player/mpv#4308 and mpv-player/mpv#2203 for discussions of the issue and workarounds to it.

There is now a minor glitch where if you use a " and a \ in the same chat message it will show \ rather than \ but that's an edge case which I don't want to spend time trying to fix. For now I guess you can just consider it an Easter egg.
