Sync media players over the web for group video viewing

Syncplay is a free tool which synchronises media players over the internet so that distant friends can watch movies together.

Setting up the program takes a little work. You'll have to manually find a server (public ones are listed on the Syncplay site) or set up one yourself. You'll need a compatible media player (VLC, mplayer2, MPC-HC, mpv). If the video isn't already available on a streaming URL then everyone who wants to watch must have a local copy of the file, and you must choose a room name and pass it on - along with the server name - to everyone who wants to watch.

This isn't as bad as it sounds, though. You'll figure it out in maybe five minutes. And once you've set everything up, your configuration can be saved for instant recall next time.

And once Syncplay is running, the program works very well. A "Notifications" panel lists users as they connect to the server, you can start play with a click - once everyone is ready - and anyone can pause playback, maybe step back a scene and resume, and everyone else will see the same results on their own system.

Changelog

Verdict:

It could be easier to use, but once you've figured out the basics Syncplay is a straightforward way to synchronise your video viewing.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.41

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.41 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
