So apparently there’s this thing called Synchtube out there that can improve the process of watching videos at the same time, or, FURDER QUESTIONING as we like to call it. Except it’s kind of flakey and doesn’t seem to work all the time. Still, it’s a good first step, and I wonder why someone hasn’t tried it before. It’s a shame that more video steaming websites don’t have sync options. The hit-or-miss tactics of trying to start at the same time combined with trying to coordinate ad breaks on some services is quite annoying.
Just give an option for two logged in users to share the same timecodes and you’ve got it done. Sometimes you want to watch things with friends. Why not make it easier?
