Why does my video wall play out of sync?

Problem description:

  • Playback is out of sync in between outputs

Solution:

  • A possible solution is to use display names instead of ip addresses (see Always use computer names for display assignment)
  • Make sure that there are not multiple display computers running the startup script. (How to start a show using the startup script?)
  • If the displays within WATCHOUT is placed adjacent to each other try seperate them by a couple of pixels (there is a known issue where directly adjacent displays shares media when they should not)
  • Try other video format/codec. ( There have been cases where H.264 videos would not play out in sync. Try HAP)
