>it doesn't actually sync across the viewers? (start time, play/pause)

What is even the point then? It's litearlly the only feature I expect from such service.

From the description on homepage:

> Wait until the countdown hits zero and your movie night starts

So it does sync across viewers (I haven't actually tried it yet).

It syncs the start time. As it works without a browser extension I can not sync the actual movie as I do not get the information.

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 :/

I agree and that's why I pointed it out. you could literally just put any URL to any website and call it a party if there is no sync capabilities.
