    Default Feature Request: Multi-System PlayTo

    So I had an idea for something. I don't know if this is even possible.

    Let's say we're setting up a LAN party and have multiple TVs in the game room with their own streaming devices.... But we want all of those TVs to play the same Movie/Music/Video/whatever at the same time. Obviously this would be difficult to do client-side, especially if each TV had its own streaming device. For instance, I run a mix of Roku and nVidia Shield devices.

    It would be cool if you could do a synchronized multi-device PlayTo feature. So that it would play to multiple devices and remain synchronized across those devices. Obviously, if this was going to "be a thing" there would need to be some sort of "playlist feature" where you can do a queue of videos/music/whatever and keep it synchronized.

    Anyhow.... Just a thought.

    The main issue here would be synchronizing the TVs/devices to play at the same time. You can currently play a playlist to a device from Mezzmo and do this for each TV/device but then depending upon the device response in requesting the files and starting to play them they would get out of sync.

    Mezzmo Android: Install it on your tablet, smartphone, Android TV or Amazon Fire to browse and stream files from your Mezzmo library to all your devices. Full details at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...mo_android.asp
    Mezzmo for Kodi Add-on: Install it into Kodi to stream files from your Mezzmo library directly in Kodi. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...odi_user_guide

    Yeah. The only way I could think of doing it would be to set up a virtual device that was a set of physical devices and PlayTo the virtual device and have it mirror to the physical devices.
