Frequently Asked Questions
What is this?
vSync is a free video hangout where you watch videos and chat in real time with other people.
Is this free?
Yes for you as a user, completely. However; the site DOES need profit to be able to exist, this money is generated by ads. So if you want to keep using this site then whitelist it on your adblocker, if you don't know how then google it. In addition the more feedback/profit I can get from the site the more motivated I will be to continue to add more features!
When I join a room nothing happens...
If when you join a room nothing appears in chat after a few moments then refresh the page, your browser probably just didnt load correctly. If problems continue then make sure your browser is up to date.
Where do I report bugs or request features™?

. Also if you really like the site then for the love of science WHITELIST IT SITE ON YOUR ADBLOCKER! You see, I cant host the site very well unless I can make money to support it. So if you have an adblocker then tell it to allow ads on this site so I don't have to shut it down anytime soon kthnxbai.
How do i use it?
You can find a room from our public rooms list at the top of the main page, to join one just click on it. OR you can sign up to create an account on the site and then invite others into your room. It's that easy!
Do I HAVE to make an account?
No, an account it not required to use vSync and you can even choose a temporary name once you get in a room; however, you cannot use a name that already belongs to a registered user, so if you normally use the same name then you should register it or someone else might and then you will be unable to use that name! To choose a temporary name while in a room, say "/nick <name>"
What do I do in my room?
You watch videos with your friends! First, add a video link to the playlist. The input areas on your page are clearly labeled so you will be able to spot them, just paste a valid link in the playlist input box and hit the enter key. The link will then be added to the playlist!
How do I change videos?
The leader clicks one of the items in the playlist area and it will switch videos for everyone in the room.
What's a room leader?
The person who is currently in charge of controlling the video for everyone in the room. If the leader pauses, so does everyone else. If the leader jumps to a different time in the video then everyone else does too!
How do I know who is leader?
The leader's name is always red in the userlist.
What determines who gets leader?
Well that would be the room owner. To give someone leader just right click their name in the userlist and click the "grant lead" button!
What if there's trouble? I hear there are dangerous creatures out here, like trolls even!
To view moderation options for users right click their name in the userlist located next to the chat box.
