Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SYNCHRONIZED PLAYING OF MEDIA ITEMS ON A PLURALITY OF REMOTE DEVICES
Abstract:
Generally, a method and system for synchronized playing of a streamed media item on multiple remote devices are provided. The system may comprise a source device arranged to play and stream a media item and arranged to select at least one target device with which to share the media item thereof. The system may comprise a synchronization server in communication with the source device and with the at least one target device. The synchronization server may be arranged to: (i) determine a source average latency for the source device and a target average latency for each of the at least one target device; and (ii) determine, for each of the at least one target device, based on the source average latency and the respective target device's target average latency, a global time offset usable to synchronize playing of the media item thereof up to a predetermined accuracy.
