    Default View 1 movie simultaneously on 2 android tabs

    Hi,

    I have been trying to work out if it is possible to view 1 movie simultaneously on 2 seperate tablets. I am trying to set them up as in-car entertainment for my kids (3 and 1.5). They are too young to keep heaphones on so i was hoping to be able to somehow sync a movie on both tablets to keep the audio in time. I have heard of the Seagate Wi-fi HDD but am not sure if that can play the movie in sync on 2 devices (and the guy at the shop had no idea).

    Does anyone know if this is possible? Also it would have to be without a wi-fi unless i used the seagate drive.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forums.
    The only thing I can think of is if one tablet can have the movie in memory, and then maybe getting the other to mirror the screen. However, I am not sure that can be done without a wifi connection.

    You could consider getting a portable DVD player with HDMI input, then connecting the tablet to the DVD player and setting the tablet to mirror (if possible).
