Synchronization instructions:

- Synchronization is a feature that keeps a movie in sync between two devices. To enable sync, first set up the IP of the device you wish to sync with in Settings/General, where you can also find the IP of your own device. Do this on both phones so they have each others IP configured.

- Select a video to play. If it's a local video it must be present on both devices.

- In the VR UI, click the "sync" button on both devices to enable synchronization.

- On one of the devices, start the video by pressing the play button. After a small delay, the movie will start playing synchronized on both devices.

Seeking and network play is supported!

Feature suggestions and bug reports are always welcome!
