Video Playback

Modified on Mon, 29 Apr 2024 at 08:37 PM

In this article, we will discuss the video playback options in the Synergy Sports Softball Application. 

Video playback is an essential and dynamic part of the Synergy Softball app. Not only can you use the app to watch film, but you can also send desired clips and games to the Synergy Editor for use in your own custom edits and playlists that can be shared with your entire team. 


Playback Options

From the app's menu selections, either send the video to the in-app player by selecting Playback, send the clips to the Synergy Editor, or select Compare to view clips side by side with the in-app player.


  • Playback: This is the default setting and uses the Softball Application's built-in video player.  When viewing clips in Playback mode, you can also send playlists to the Synergy Editor. This is done from the player window.
  • Editor: Send playlists directly to the Synergy Editor, where you can create Custom Edits, trim clips, and review video.
  • Compare: View playlists using the in-app player's split-screen mode which allows you to compare two separate plays simultaneously, or view multiple angles, when available, of a single play simultaneously.

In the Synergy Sports Softball app, to set your preference, make a selection from the top left of any view. The app will remember your setting until you manually change it again. In order to play the video click the Play icon button as shown below. 


Video Player

The in-app video player has been redesigned to provide an even better user experience, utilizing a Multi-Angle Layout, allowing you to view multiple camera angles of the same plays at the same time. With the dark theme, you can view comfortably in any environment and watch multi-angle events side by side.


Video Player Controls 

The in-app video player contains a variety of controls to make the most of your experience. Controls currently available are (from top left to bottom right):
