problem with sopcast


Hello everyone,

I am trying to install sopcast to watch P2P tv but, I don't know what is wrong, I did the following:

Install library libstdc++5

then

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jason-scheunemann/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install sopcast-player



And it looks that installs fine, I got the icon on my applications >> sound and video menu but, when I tried to double click on the icon of sopcast doesn't open, I don't understand why?

Can anybody help me out? and also how can I execute sopcast on the console? just to try if it runs or not.

By the way I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and works great so far.


Regards

Hey quanta,

thanks for answering, I did not because I do not know the sintaxis of the command to run it on the terminal? Can you provide it for me please?


Regards

Any other solution?

You could try gmlive. That's what I use and it works ok. There's some information about it here.

sopcast-player.

Whenever you don't know the command to start a program, let's try with some beginning characters of its name and press [TAB] [TAB].

Good call mate, the command was sopcast-player xDDD Sorry for my ignorance !!!

Well when I tried to run it on terminal I get the following:


user@user-laptop:~$ sopcast-player

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/sopcast-player.py", line 1783, in <module>
pySop = pySopCast()
File "/usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/sopcast-player.py", line 371, in __init__
self.vlc = VLCWidget.VLCWidget(*p)
File "/usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/VLCWidget.py", line 28, in __init__
self.player=instance.mediacontrol_new_from_instance()
AttributeError: 'Instance' object has no attribute 'mediacontrol_new_from_instance'


Any one understands what the problem is? Because I have no clue and by the way I get the same error with root.

Regards

You mean something like this?
Code:
sp-sc-auth sop://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:3912/2105 3908 8908 > /dev/null &
and then followed by something like this?
Code:
mplayer -vo gl -framedrop -playlist http://localhost:8908/tv.asf
Note the port 2105 is just one example. You change that according what you want to watch. You replace the x's by the appropriate ip number.
ciao,
jdk

For Ubuntu 10.10

Please read my page on installing Sopcast Player if you are using Ubuntu 10.10. It also has details of how to set up SOP links in Chromium.
