HDSync 0.6 “Sunflower” released
A new version of the source (and binary build) of HDSync is out: 0.6 codename “Sunflower”.
Here below a summary of changes:
- Improved stability
- Fixes to the looping of videos
- Fixes to network handshake
- Documentation updates
- New website, mailinglist – and here we are :)
This release gets us to a good point, but HDSync still is in a BETA stage of development and we don’t have yet 100% precise frame sync.
Also there is a problem reported by many users, that the boxes freeze after about 4 to 6 hours of syncstarted loops, this is a problem we will address in the coming releases and for which there seems to be already a temporary fix.
Hence, the primary development goals towards 1.0 are: making the loop more steady (avoid freezes) and making the sync frame precise. In particular for the frame precision sync I’m planning to rewrite the network handshake and sync mechanism: while it is currently using a shell script and code from GNU netcat, I expect to lower the latency adopting the 0mq library.
Feel free to subscribe our new mailinglist to stay in touch and discuss further development.
