ofxVideoSync - synchronise playback of multiple videos

This is an addon to sync the playback of multiple videos, both on multiple OF apps on a single machine (using localhost) and across a local LAN network.

Currently tested and works on Raspberry Pi 3 and desktop Linux, but it should work on all desktop platforms as it leverages ofVideoPlayer (it uses ofxOMXPlayer on RPI, so therefore is currently limited to RPI3 only).

An XML configuration file determines whether the app is a sender (the main video to sync to, of which there should only be one) or a receiver (there can be many of these). See the examples for more details.

You need to connect devices using a LAN cable, WIFI isn’t reliable enough to sync.

This addon took inspiration from the following project: https://github.com/turingmachine/omxplayer-sync
