Better than any of the "watch together" websites. Apart from local files, you can also use youtube-dl to watch youtube. You can also use direct url (F12 → Network (Media) → URL) to watch something together. For example, anime streaming sites.

Works with plenty of players and there are public servers (though I prefer hosting over VLAN).

Works amazingly to watch videos with my friend. There's no latency at all between devices, and it pops up a message whenever someone pauses or changes the position, so you can tell it's syncing properly. The only annoying thing is that you both have to have the video file, but you can just use something like share.ipfs.io to send it, and the download time is worth it for absolutely zero buffering at all.

I also managed to set up a personal server on my computer really easily, so my friend just connected to my computer instead of using one of the public servers.

It is simple and works well. You only all need to have the same file.

Great for watching stuff with friends. I initially figured that everyone would have to have the exact same file to watch together, but I found out by accident that as long as the files have the same length timewise, it works perfectly.

A wonderful and sadly not well known application.
