Sync YouTube Playback with Friends

Sync up YouTube playback with your friends on ShareTube

Want to rewatch Dramatic Chipmunk for the thousandth time? Here’s how to sync up YouTube playback with friends.

INTROOh my god, you have to check this out, is a phrase we’ve all been uttering since YouTube came along in 2005 and gave us an endless supply of videos to annoyingly send to our friends. But it can be hard to share a laugh when you live across the country from your pal.

ShareTube:  That’s why you should check out ShareTube. Just visit the site, create a room, and sync up YouTube playback with your friends. You can search and add any video to your queue. And when you pause, their video pauses. When they press play, your video plays too. Now you can Rickroll each other with zero lag time.

Fun fact: The first YouTube video is called Me at the Zoo. In it, co-founder Jawed Karim describes zoo elephants behind him, saying “The cool thing about these guys is that, is that they have really, really, really long, um, trunks, and that’s, that’s cool”.

OUTRO: True words, Jawed.

CLOSE: That’s your cheat code. Later guys.
