Hi there,

The start of the VPR file is not synchronized across the ventuz cluster so you are not allowed to set the MovieClip to autoplay mode. Instead of autoplay you have to trigger the play event on all machines in the same frame. Just use OSC nodes to trigger the movie play event from the master only or trigger the play from a Keyframe Animation node because that one is synchronized via the Clusterclock.
Building applications for a cluster of machines is a little bit tricky we plan to write a dedicated Usermanual page on that topic where we explain the most common cases and how to solve them.

Stay tuned
