Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Does anyone know of a way to either:

  • sync youtube videos across multiple Ubuntu desktops.
  • sync media (movies/music) across multiple Ubuntu desktops.

Ideally, one would be able to have media play throughout an entire house/flat just by linking a device in each room, which is perfect for events. This is very much like music pool for PCs.

An alternative is to place long range wireless speakers in each room, but this does not provide the multiple displays/visuals.

I tried using ubuntu's shared desktop application, but it won't share the sound of the host machine with the client.
