For those who want to install SopCast Player, a Linux GUI front-end for the p2p streaming technology developed by SopCast, here’s a PPA with sopcast-player 0.8.5 for Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 16.10, Linux Mint 18, and derivatives.
Open terminal from Unity Dash, App Launcher, or via Ctrl+Alt+T shortcut keys. When it opens, run following commands one by one:
1. Run command to add the PPA repository:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxthebest.net/sopcast
Type in your password (no visual feedback) when it prompts and hit Enter.
2. Then install sopcast-player package either via Synaptic Package Manager or by running commands in terminal:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install sopcast-player
3. Remove the PPA repository afterwards, since the player is not updated any more.
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:linuxthebest.net/sopcast
For those who don’t want to add PPA, manually grab the DEB packages here.
