One i was chatting with my friend on fb and we were unable to watch a youtube video together as our video played at different time. That was when I have an idea of creating a platform for people to watch videos or listen to music, ... together without having to time it themselves.

What it does

Let people watch video at same timing

How we built it

We use react native for front end and Firebase as a server to sychronize their timing

Challenges we ran into

We faced a lot of problems with the youtube plugin and how to organize the structure on Firebase

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We managed to overcome the bug in the youtube plug in by implement its features ourselves

What we learned

Firebase management

What's next for TogetherTube

We can have browsing videos from different channels, connecting videos to youtube, connect through bluetooth instead of wifi
