Ace Stream issue

Hi. Recently I installed Ace Stream player for p2p TV, but can't get it working.
Player and plugin for browser are installed.
Stuck here and can't start stream engine:
~ $ acestreamengine --client-console 
2016-12-30 19:15:19,984|acestream|error during startup
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "core.c", line 503, in 
  File "core.c", line 138, in 
  File "core.c", line 74, in 
  File "core.c", line 2, in 
ImportError: cannot import name __m2crypto
Any thoughts?
How to fix this error?

I have Gentoo as well and have fiddled around with acestream for a while (as well modifying/fixing its source code) but have never managed to make it work
I assume that you managed to compile it?

In any case, my workaround was to create a VM running xubuntu 14.04 and install it as a package => works great (but I NEVER update the OS packages being scared that acestream will stop working because there were some major changes to its dependencies some time ago...).
For the audio I reroute it to the host that runs the VM using pulseaudio.
