My program seems to occasionally jump ahead. I connected both of my computers to the same room and “Mikey” (my mac) jumps ahead ever so often as the images attached show. All the issues (disconnecting from server, speed reverting etc.) all stem from the Mac version. I have never had these messages on Windows.

I'll try to improve the situation following the release of 1.3.0. I can make Syncplay guess the position if it doesn't get a response in time, which should help with some problems such as erroneous jumps. I'll also look into allowing for the server/client to be more flexible in relation to disconnecting users, although I suspect that this problem might calm down or go away if Syncplay isn't waiting for mpv to respond. However, it won't fix whatever the underlying cause is that means mpv isn't responding as reliably as we'd like, which I won't be able to fix as I don't think it is Syncplay's fault and I don't have OSX or much experience developing for it.

Try 'git pull', and if that doesn't work you can try asking on the #syncplay IRC channel on chat.freenode.net and see if anyone knows.

It worked. And the program works with mpv now. But, it’s still displaying the jump messages ever so often

[11:10:28] jumped from 35:32 to 35:23
[11:10:29] jumped from 35:23 to 35:34
[11:11:51] jumped from 36:54 to 36:51
[11:11:51] jumped from 36:52 to 36:55

With vlc, it displays:

[11:13:54] Warning: The media player took 6 seconds to respond. If you experience syncing issues then close applications to free up system resources, and if that doesn't work then try a different media player.

It’s just generally unstable with vlc too. It periodically kicks me out the room, rewinds etc.

Hopefully someone who knows the Mac better can figure out how to fix this. In the meantime as a workaround you can try running Syncplay via Wine or other emulation solution.

For some reason the CLI variant of Syncplay seems to work fine on 10.11.

There doesn’t really need to be a “guide” as such: all you do is install the emulation software of your choice, which stimulates a Windows environment, and then you just install Syncplay in that emulator as you would normally on a Windows PC.

Wine .app packages might be the future for giving people easy reliable access to Syncplay on a Mac.

@vladashram @es0phagus @nilsding: How well does Syncplay work if you run Syncplay portable 1.4.0 RC2 ( http://syncplay.pl/Syncplay-v1.4.0-RC2-Portable.zip ) via a .app bundle packaged with WineBottler 1.8 ( http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/ ) or Wineskin Winery 1.7 ( http://wineskin.urgesoftware.com/ )?
