Welcome to the virtual movie theater! Interact with friends remotely over video chat while watching your favorite movies and tv shows.
To get started, download the free Scener extension from the Chrome Web Store.
Follow the link above and click Add Scener.
Clicking Add Scener will take you to the Chrome Web Store where you then press Add to Chrome.
Then, press Add Extension to add Scener to your Chrome toolbar.
The Scener extension lives at the top of your toolbar. Anytime you want to use Scener, click the icon to toggle the program.
NOTE: A recent Chrome update has caused some extensions to now be hidden. Scener may be found by clicking on the puzzle piece found in the same spot.
To start watching, click Create a Theater on the sidebar on the right-hand side. From here you can select our private theater option for a more intimate experience (if you want to watch with someone else) and a live feature that allows others to tune in.
Follow the instructions on the sidebar to create a new Scener account.
Please make sure that you also allow permissions for camera and microphone access to use Scener.
For the best experience, we recommend that you use headphones while watching.
Once you click Create A Theater you will have the option to choose between a private theater and a live theater. For more information on this recent addition, check here.
When in a Theater, you can either invite friends by sharing the link to your theater or by giving the theater code to your friends.
Once you add friends in, you can now play anything you want together, from anywhere. Be sure to enable your camera on the sidebar to see each other!
To control what’s playing, you must have the remote (as shown in the upper lefthand corner).
If you have the remote, you can play/pause content and Scener will sync your your friends’ screens with yours. Pass the remote to a friend to let them control the theater!
To exit the theater, press the red end call icon.
Happy watching! If you have any other questions, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
