- it also supports prime/youtube/vimeo
- it has an audio/video chat instead of a simple text chat
- it doesn't require a chrome extension
- it doesn't actually sync across the viewers? (start time, play/pause)
does it mean you can literally support other platforms without any integration?
What is even the point then? It's litearlly the only feature I expect from such service.
> Wait until the countdown hits zero and your movie night starts
So it does sync across viewers (I haven't actually tried it yet).
What I am planing to do is to allow a later join into the movie night by calculating how much time has passed since the movie night start and then send the late attendee to that time code in the movie. Not supported by all services tough :/
What I want to provide is an auto start and a jump to timecode 0. All platforms that allow that via query parameters can be supported by binge together :D
A solution could be to stop the movie for everyone, get the timecode. Send everyone the new timecode and start the movie from there after the countdown.
(heck, this could even be a sync/break feature. If someone’s internet connection gets disrupted everyone can stop and sync.
Or if they want a movie break, they can do it like this.)
