Remote not starting video with received multi sync. UPDATED!!!!!!

Anyone having any problems with media not starting on the remote with v6.0. It will start if I stop the video on the master and play it. The remote receives the packet and lists the video. But doesn't start playing it until it is stopped on the master. I have multi sync checked on the master, ip forward on master and remote set. Both are communicating, the remote will receive the packet and the video will pop up in the remote, but it seems to stop there and not start. I'm stumped and missing something.
                                        Thanks animal


What FPP versions, and are you sure the filenames match exactly?  Check the fppd.log file to see if it says it is trying to sync but the file isn't found or for any other errors listed.


   This is the log from the remote v6.0. I have to set the video output in fpp setting to the pixel overlay for it to play. In the log there is a lot of unable to find parent for the overlay then a lot of media cannot open. This does work in 5.5. I can get the log from that if needed.

Are you playing the video on a Pixel prop or a monitor/Projector?
How about a screenshot of your Pixel Overlay model?

If to err is human, I am more human than most people.


it's outputting to a colorlite sender to the panel. With fpp as a player. I have to set a virtual matrix then a pixel overlay pointing to the vm. Then load your playlist with the media pointed to the overlay. (Check out led panels not scaling in 5.5)

 Now as a remote the output in fpp setting's needs to point to the overlay only. It works, but only when you stop the master in mid play. Then it kicks on in the remote from the beginning and plays. It seems to get the packet to load but not play.


Can you possibly test to see if it is doing the same thing if you turn off the Virtual Matrix on the remote and play directly to the HDMI output instead by changing the default video out to the HDMI instead of the overlay?


It does not play. It will show in the status in the remote to start to play after I stop it at the player. But no picture. It seems the sync comes in but not play it. It just keeps syncing it at the start of the media. It starts to play when I stop the player in the middle or before it ends.

This should be fixed in v6 now if you pull in the latest updates.


I didn't merge it to 6.0 yet.  It's only on master.

Sorry about that, I knew I should have checked the other branch first.  @animal  the fix is coming...  :)


Thanks everyone. I'm sorry for not updating. I got covid and it's kicking my ass coming out of it.
   again, thank you all.

               All fixed with current update. 
       Great job.
