What is Metastream Remote?
Metastream Remote is an innovative Firefox extension that allows users to watch streaming media with friends in synchronous sessions. To enjoy movies and TV shows on subscription platforms like Netflix, each participant should have their own account. By interacting with embedded websites, it controls audio/video playback and communicates information about the URL for a seamless streaming experience. On Metastream's website, browser tabs allow message sending to enhance interactivity with media. The open-source nature of the add-on enables easy auditing of its source code.
