See Dependencies of this package. Not everyone needs or wants the GUI, this is both client and a server package.

@alerque - could you please switch the optdepends to -identity instead of _identity?

I think python-service_identity and pyside2 are missing as dependencies, am I right? Syncplay complains that I don't have them on startup.

Hi! Would be nice to push version 1.6.8.

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
