Hey
Has anyone managed to install Sopcast (http://www.sopcast.org/download/) ?
It looks like Pardus has NO live tv pisi packages (no Zattoo, no tvrants, ....) just Miro? Speaking only from a user point of view, it is a bit of a shame, no?

Hi PhiX

Correct me if I am wrong, but kdetv and xawtv are to do with using your PC with your tv (i.e you need a tv card on your PC and a link between the two), whether Sopcast is to do with live streaming from the PC?

I am looking at live streaming of tv channels, like with TVU say (except that TVU is just for MS, Sopcast is not).

I have given it a try some time ago  but I did not manage to get SopCast working, it is quite difficlut in Linux (not Pardus per se), in Windows you have a GUI, in linux you have to perform numerous command line operations to get it working which didnot succeed for me.

If anyone has a simple right away HOWTO for getting SopCast to work I would much appreciate it

Maybe I should dive into

From an Ubuntu forum thread:

 sopcast linux
3 Easy Steps

Step: 1

Install sopcast on linux download this http://download.sopcast.cn/download/sp-auth.tgz and save to your home folder, then extract it, then in the extracted folder (sp-auth) there is a file called (sp-sc-auth) rename the file to (sp-sc)

Then in the Terminal (command prompt) type

sudo nautilus


This will open a file browser

Select (File System) then open the (bin) folder, drag and drop the (sp-sc) file you renamed into the (bin) folder.

close the file browser's and Terminal when you are done.


Step: 2

Download this http://www.sopcast.com/download/libstdcpp5.tgz and save to home folder, extract it, then in the extracted folder (usr) open the folder (lib) there will be two file's (libstdc++.so.5) and (libstdc++.so.5.0.1) you need to drag and drop these two file's into the (bin) folder.

Same process as step: 1

In Terminal (command prompt) type

sudo nautilus

This will open a file browser

Select (File System) then open the (bin) folder, drag and drop the (libstdc++.so.5) and (libstdc++.so.5.0.1) files into the (bin) folder.

close the file browser's and Terminal when you are done.


Step:; 3

Download this http://petepr.drivehq.com/humpty/sop...ter-3.5.tar.gz and save to your home folder, extract it, then in the extracted folder (sopcaster) there will be a file called (sopcaster) you need to drag and drop the (sopcaster) file into the (bin) folder

In Terminal (command prompt) type

sudo nautilus

This will open a file browser

Select (File System) then open the (bin) folder, drag and drop the (sopcaster) file into the (bin) folder.

close the file browser's and Terminal when you are done

FINISHED

All you have to do now is create a launcher for it

System>>Preferences>>Main menu>> Internet>> New item

Type : Application
Name : SopCaster
Command : sopcaster

press OK then your done

To launch SopCaster Applications>>Internet>>SopCaster

When SopCaster launches go to channels>>wget to get channel list:

The default player is mplayer if you want to use a different player you have installed put the player command in sopcaster eg: VLC would be command ( vlc) without the brackets.

Hello azra,

after extracting the tar.gz-file please read the "Readme"

I attached it.

Hey Bubbel

Thanks for this, but a GUI is a must I feel?

By the by, funny that the attached is in .doc format for a Linux readme! I would have thought that the devs of SopCast would have chosen another format!  Wink

Perhaps "we" should try combining step one and two from Reply #5 with installing the GUI Sopcast from the quoted URL in step 3?

Works for me, thank you.
Apparently you have to start streaming locally first and then play the local stream with mplayer or vlc

Thanks for this tip
