Thank you!

@Aanok sure! I'll update that on the next push.

Hello, would it be possible to replace package python-service_identity with python-service-identity? They're entirely equivalent but it seems the latter is used by a wider number of packages. It's an annoying duplicate in the repos that really should get resolved.

Ok it's working with mpv, but not with vlc or vlc-wrapper. Both syncplay and vlc and any wrapper will have to be sigkilled if you attempt to run them.

Works on my machine™

Using mpv as backend

Neither this package, nor its git sibling work even now that pyside2 is officially available as 5.15.1-1

installing either and running syncplay -d brings up the initial gui fine, but upon launching vlc and the interface only 1 frame of the interface ever display. The debug messages yield nothing useful.

Was there something else we were waiting on?

@UnicornsOnLSD Known issue with pyside2 5.15.0, fixed in master for 5.15.1 but releasing that is taking... over 2 months now.

Check the Syncplay Issues for workaround.

Hint: Run through terminal to get errors

I am unable to connect to any Syncplay servers with this package. It tries to connect for about 10 seconds and then says "Connection with server failed." The Appimage from their website works fine. I have installed python-certifi and python-service_identity.

Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?

If you are getting following error "No module named 'twisted'",

run syncplay using app-menu (not in terminal). You should use syncplay-git to install.

Use pyside2-git until pyside2 is at 5.15.1+ (August) if you want a working GUI.
