Synchronized playback (Sync Play) feature

With OptiSigns you can enable screens to play in sync. This means:

  • If content published screens are the same, all screens will advance next playlist items or timed video at the same time.
  • If content published screens are different, each screen will display different content, but in sync from the loop start.

Supported on: Android, Fire TV, Windows, Linux, MacOS, ChromeOS, Webplayer


  • When Sync Play is enabled, playlists may not start from the beginning (because they are synced).
  • Devices do not need to be on the same network, nor there's any special configuration needed on devices.
  • Devices' times need to be updated, and devices need to be in the same time zone.
  • Android, Fire TV requires updates to 5.13.7 or newer.
  • Windows, Linux, MacOS, ChromeOS, and Webplayer don't have the timer server setting yet. 

To use the Sync Play feature, just select the screens you want to enable this feature for.

1. Click Edit → Advanced → Check Sync Play

2. Open the side menu of the OptiSigns app on your screen. Go to the Sync Play Timeserver.

2-1. Set 1 device to Server in the Sync Play Timeserver.

2-2. Set other devices to Default  

Or Client. Make sure all other devices connect to the same IP Server.

Another option: If you cannot find any server, you can set all devices to Google NTP.

That's it. All screens will sync up.
