It allows users to synchronize Netflix video playback on multiple computers. Since it only needs to be installed on one computer, it’s probably one of the easiest to set up. Once you install the extension, navigate Lusty Locals to Netflix and choose a film or TV show to watch.
Once it loads, pause your video and click on the red “NP” button in the top right of your browser window. This will generate a unique link that you can send to other people. Those folks will be directed to your “room” where they can watch your video in sync with you. Furthermore, Netflix Party allows users to engage with each other with a simple text chat interface.
The biggest advantage to Netflix Party is that only one person needs to have the extension installed. This means people who don’t have a Netflix subscription can still be invited to participate in your room. However, there is one glaring downside. Since Netflix Party is a browser extension, in order to use it, you’ll have to watch your videos through Chrome. This means that everyone is going to be forced to huddle around their computers.
12. Sync Video
If privacy is what you’re after, Sync Video is for you. Sync Video was certainly created with a bit more privacy in mind, as it allows you to watch videos online with friends for free. Here, a temporary nickname is not allowed. Registering for this free service is a requirement.
The upside of this is that once registered, you are gifted with your own private, permanent virtual “room.” You may return to this room each time you want to use the service and invite friends to watch videos online with you.
Vimeo and YouTube videos may be added and saved to playlists and watched by you and your friends in your virtual “room” at any time. You e at any time.
This negates the issue of the omnipresent Internet “trolls” that could potentially venture into your virtual space, intruding on the privacy of you and your friends.
You may invite your friends to your “room” at any given time by clicking “invite” on the upper-right side of the page. You do have the option to make your “room” public, if you so choose, although most do not choose this option with Sync Video.
