How To Watch Videos Using Rave App?

There are various apps and websites made for this purpose. However, when I tested almost all of the major applications, I found that the Rave App does a pretty decent job.

This is how the homepage looks like –

Rave App Homepage

Rave application supports videos from YouTube, Netflix, Vimeo, Reddit, Google Drive, and also some random videos across the web. You can listen to Karaoke or record your own version as well.

For all the platforms, you can either log in to your account to get the customized feed or you can simply browse without logging in. However, Netflix will ask you to sign in for an obvious reason.

You need to create a group where you will invite your friends to join. Once done, you are free to play any video.

While Watching Videos

When your friends join to watch a video along with you, there are three options that you get to see.

1] Privacy Options

  • Public: When you select the public option then random people across the globe can join your group to watch the video that you are playing.
  • Nearby: This option uses GPS. The people who are living near you will be able to join your group.
  • Friends only: Once you start using this app, you get an option to add friends. This option is to add only those people who are your friends on this app.
  • Invite Only: If you want to enjoy videos only with your beloved or some special people then this option is available for you. No one will be able to join your live stream unless you send an invite link.

2] Playback Options

  • Let’s Vote: Once your video ends, it gives an option to vote if your group has multiple viewers. If a video gets more votes, then this app will promote similar videos.
  • Just Play: Play a video once and stop.
  • Autoplay: This option lets you play the videos continuously unless you close the app or leave a group.
  • Leader’s Choice: A leader is the one who forms a group and invites other members to watch videos together. He is an admin.

3] VoIP Options

VoIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol. It means that group members can talk on a microphone while the videos are streaming online. This gives great scope for discussions or just casual chats among friends. VoIP gives a lively feeling among friends.

However, a leader can choose to allow everyone to talk or simply not allow anyone. Sometimes it is annoying when people keep chattering, isn’t it?

How to watch online videos with remote friends? Use Rave App

Your squad can enjoy texting or sending voice messages while watching the videos. What better can you get while watching online videos with remote friends?

2] Play videos in Background

YouTube app and even the native YouTube music app don’t allow you to play videos in the background while working on some other apps. Of course, they allow but only when you pay them.

This is not a problem anymore. The Rave application allows you to play any video in the background. You can use any app while this app will still be playing in the background as long as you don’t stop the video.

Isn’t it cool? No doubt, YouTube has the biggest collection of music and you can’t really afford to compare YouTube with any other music streaming application.
