Introducing FarPlay! I’ve been playing music with others over the internet throughout the pandemic. Trouble is, until now it was incredibly complicated to do that. Today, we’re releasing FarPlay, an app that makes low-latency audio accessible to everyone.
Anton Runov and I have been working hard on FarPlay since February 2021 — but the story starts much earlier, in summer 2020, when we decided to add a key feature to JackTrip, as you can read about in the history section of the main FarPlay.io site.
We’re proud to be releasing FarPlay into public beta today. It’s available to everyone and is 100% free.

All of the examples and livestreams have video as well as audio. How is the video provided or synced with the audio?
Hi Bruce, in these examples, the video was done with Zoom or video.ninja, and the audio and video were synched using FarPlay’s Broadcast Output features. However, we’re about to release a version that has built-in video.
