I have an html5 video and I would like the ability to hit a button and for it to sync the current time across all instances of the video (on different browsers etc). I know that may not be a good idea and it would probably be better to sync with a specific user but this is just a test…
I thought an observable would be the answer since I could just call the next() function when I want (e.g. as a callback from another function) with the current time of the video and then in the onNext() function on the observable I could set the current time, e.g.:
this.video.nativeElement.currentTime = value
Am I being an idiot??
