I would like to try XSynch, but don't see it either in the server
settings/plugins or on SlimDevices website. Where do you get it? Thx.

Hi there

XSync uses about the same code to synchronize
players. (Actually I copied most of the regular
synchronize functions and tweaked them a bit.)

The big difference is that you don't need to go
from player to player to sync them but can declare
one master and sync all others with it in one step.

With all that said I can't tell if XSync improves
synchronization at all. But I guess it's worth
a try.
