I'm in a relationship with someone who has to go back to school very soon and we're not going to see each other for a few months. There's a lot of shows coming out this Fall we both like and we tried using Skype screen sharing to watch a show together, but it doesn't really work that well. I thought of us both having the show or movie downloaded and trying to sync the times together, but even if it's off half a second that could be kind of annoying. So is there any software or websites we can use that would allow us to achieve what we want? Thank you!

I like to use TeamViewer for that.
Free and easy to use (adds a "watch with someone else" buttom to VLC).

Where in VLC is the button?

Hi Sahrum... Can you offer any insight into how TeamViewer works with VLC? (I don't see a button to share...)

Thanks!
