Use an Arduino to sync as many media players or DVD players as you want.

Similar projects worth following

Media artists often need to play multiple videos on multiple screens in loop for long time. Often they also want to play all videos synced (i.e. all of them starting at the same time). Having one device (for example a computer) playing all videos requires expensive and complicated special hardware if you have more then three videos and screens. An easier way to achieve this, is to use seperate media players and screens and to sync them using a common or special infrared remote control. That's what this project does.
