StreamTorrent cannot connect to the net


I recently installed StreamTorrent using Wine. I took some pointers from this page but it really wasn't a difficult task.

The problem seems to be allowing the program to connect to the net. When I start it there are no channels, just blank (this is not a major issue to me) but I can't even load from a direct link, it simply keeps on spinning then tells me that it cannot connect to the link.

The icon in the taskbar does light up (connection available) but it has a red cross through it. I also cannot select the setup button as it is greyed out. I hope that somebody has had a similar problem and this is quickly resolved.

Thanks for your reponse cookup1, however there is a slight misunderstanding here. StreamTorrent is for streaming TV over the web, I have been trying to follow a certain team after a certain UK broadcaster halved it's schedule and number of games. Sop is fine, I can get this to work but StreamTorrent does not, these links start ST:

I have a working torrent downoader, thanks

OK, I have been working on this, and I am also not there yet. Here are my notes so far:

1) Streamtorrent installer works fine with Wine, no problems there.
2) Adding a link: right-click to 'copy link location', go into the list window (main part of ST window), right-click to 'add', paste in link.
2A) Links from WWW frequently appear to have '%20' (space) in them, this needs to be removed for the link to work.
3) I found here a list of ports used by ST, and opened them: http://www.myp2pforum.eu/streamtorre...amtorrent.html
4) Starting torrent: right-click to 'open in background' if you open it any other way it tries to find windows media player.
5) playing stream (I'm being optimistic, I haven't gotten this to work yet): vlc http://127.0.0.1:15900/1.asf for Channel 1 in your list (basically the same as SopCast)

Currently, I am stuck with a "Connection Error / Blocked by Firewall / Partially Connected" status, and no torrent.

How I Got StreamTorrent To Work

Turns out it not an ST problem, it's a bad link problem.

Here's how to get the correct link:

1. Right-click the ST link on MyP2P (or wherever) and select "Inspect Element"

2. The code will be highlighted in the left window. Right-click the code that starts with "st://" and select "Copy as HTML"

3. Start ST. Go to File/Add, paste the code into the box, then edit it by deleting everything before st:// at the beginning (including the quote mark) and everything at the end starting with " target= (including the quote mark). Examples of the code are below.

4. Click OK, crack open a cold beer and enjoy!


Sample code -- before editing:
<a href="st://A0QCgpwEdTwDPAWCoAHIgBYFNlYDAWDGV+BQO5l31HVjihcGNDIwVFY0ikEHZGVmYXVsdIqiDVdvcmQgV2lkZSBGdW4=" target="_blank">420TV4-ST 300k</a>

Sample code -- after editing:
st://A0QCgpwEdTwDPAWCoAHIgBYFNlYDAWDGV+BQO5l31HVjihcGNDIwVFY0ikEHZGVmYXVsdIqiDVdvcmQgV2lkZSBGdW4=

Hope this helps.

Some Bozo
