configurable delay to sync radio with video #444
It is sometimes nice while watching something live on video, to listen to the usually better description of it on the radio.
In the 20th century, this was easy to do with broadcast TV and radio. Turn down the sound of the TV and turn up the radio. They were always nearly perfectly in sync. Now, with signals going via the internet, Transistor nearly always leads the video by quite a few seconds. In some ways, it's fun to watch that way: no surprises! You already have a pretty good idea of what's going to happen
Would it be possible to have the ability to variably offset Transistor so it can be brought into sync with video? In case this is helpful: VNC Player has this feature for both subtitles and audio.
Thank you again for Transistor!
that is a very interesting idea. I totally get what one would use it for ...
But I think it not a good fit for the type of app Transistor is. It is a bit to "niche". I try to keep Transistor super simple: Add a radio station, play back radio, 3MB size ... You get the idea.
There are a couple reasons for that: I like simple apps. I like to be able to maintain several apps in parallel and alone (as a hobbyist, in my free time).
PS. I added this feature request to Previous discussions and feature requests for future reference.
Thank you. I totally respect your decision on this. I agree Transistor is nice because it's simple. A transistor radio usually had two controls, after all!
This delay thing can probably be done on VLC or something else, so I'm sure I'm not stuck for a solution.
I'm replying simply because I find it interesting that you see this as a "niche" application. Back in the Stone Age, this was a very common use of a transistor radio. Particularly at sporting events. You'd often see people at games with their radios, listening on earpieces or with the speaker against their ear, listening to the description of the game while they watched. At home, of course, when watching on the TV, there was the option of using the table radio or the hifi of course.
But there was no adjustment to sync the radio with the game. Real life was really live back then!
