This quick tutorial is going to show you how to install Sopcast Player in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
SopCast Player is designed to be an easy to use Linux GUI front-end for the p2p streaming technology developed by SopCast.
There are a few PPAs contain the Sopcast player packages. Although there’s no Ubuntu 18.04 package available at the moment, you can install the
.deb for Ubuntu 17.10 as a workaround.
1. Download and install the dependency package
For beginners, it’s recommended to install Gdebi package installer from Ubuntu Software, then install
.deb packages with Gdebi.
2. Then download and install the sopcast player package built for Ubuntu 17.10:
Once installed, launch the software from your application launcher.
I can’t get access to any sopcast channels due to the Great Firewall, so I’m not sure if video streaming works.
Doesn’t work! Something strange happen, because doesn’t work also in Ubuntu 16.04 since 1-2 month. They changed some security features and Sopcast can’t find nothing. I can’t say what.
Worked for the briefest of times but am in the same boat as der. The other tutorials on possible solutions seem to be outdated as well :(
Sopcast-player is no longer working. I do not know why, but since January 2018, you install it and it does not work. . Alternate being the excellent TV-Maxe
“sudo add-apt-repository ppa: trebelnik-stefina / tv-maxe
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tv-maxe”.
Or the rudimentary gmlive you can install “sudo apt-get install gmlive”
It looks like the problem is from the sopcast-player since tv-maxe and gmlive work.
Could you please indicate how to install TV-Maxe on Ubuntu 18.04 ?
