could anyone please give me an update if it works if you click on channels from myp2p.eu and such? i need to see channels from that site.

I haven't added that functionality yet. I have no idea when this will be available, sorry I didn't have better news.

Cheers,

Yes, you can either do it from the command line, just type the channel address after sopcast-player. Or open SopCast Player then go to File -> Open and then enter the sop address there.

The good news is everything appears to be installed correctly, (btw did you use the PPA?). Try opening SopCast Player and then going to File -> Open and then enter sop://202.190.75.151:3912/16499 (this channel always seems to work) in the Sop Address field. Let me know how it goes.

I have sopcast installed sopcast-player64 with libstdc++5 integrated and sp-auth in (9.10) but it keeps trying to conect / retry any channel or link that I try. But advised channel works. When channel opens it runs two vlc(XVideo output) screens ??? Way other channels don`t work?

Thanks

Please follow the instructions at https://launchpad.net/~jason-scheunemann/+archive/ppa to install my ppa, the version available there takes care of the dual video problem. Also, since it is repository, you will always get the latest bug-fixes and enhancements whenever you update your computer. What version of libstdc++5 did you install, if you could write a quick how-to I think that would help a lot of fellow users who are experiencing difficulties getting the 64-bit version working properly.

Hi Jason,

I have the same issue (Connect/Retry Channel). I've tested the one you suggested with success, but almost every other channel failed. Anyway, I have just added your PPA. Any suggestion?

Thx!

After some messing around on my Karmic 64bit, here's what worked for me:

1. Download the modified version of Sopcast-Player (64) from the non-PPA source below. They seem to have added something to fix the libstdc5++ dependency. Sp-sc works via CLI after this sopcast-player64 has been installed

http://www.sourceslist.eu/installare-software-tramite-repository/installare-sopcast-player-0-3-0-su-ubuntu-karmic-koala-9-10-in-pochi-click/

2. Using the channel list does not work for me (the constant reloading problem), and neither does using the CLI with a sop address taken from http://www.sopcast.com/chlist.xml. However, the addresses taken from the Google cache of http://channel.sopcast.com/channel/ (which is down for me) seem to work fine in SopCast Player and for the CLI.

NB: Because of not using the PPA version, you get two video windows opening up.

A little bit of a mess right now! But thanks to the author of SopCast Player for making this all possible.

All,

I added a version of libstdc++5 to my ppa which should overcome the issues encountered when using SopCast Player with Ubuntu 9.10, can someone verify this works on the 64-bit platform. To perform the install first be sure you are using my ppa. Directions can be found here (https://launchpad.net/~jason-scheunemann/+archive/ppa). Then perform the following:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install libstdc++5

Note: If it the first time you are installing be sure to grab sp-auth from here (http://code.google.com/p/sopcast-player/downloads/list) after installing libstdc++5, then perform the following:

$ sudo apt-get install sopcast-player

Let me know how it works. If everything goes smoothly I will release a version of SopCast Player that can be completely installed from the PPA with just one command (I know installation is a mess right now), no need to visit the Google Code page. I believe this will add a wider user-base to the program, and hopefully more channels everyone can enjoy.

Cheers,
Jason

Wow, I am really at a loss for this one. The x86 worked fine on my system, however I don't have a 64-bit system so troubleshooting is real pain. It looks like back to the drawing board.

Please disregard the previous message, I figured out what I need to fix. Jaunty and previous included libstdc++5 as part of its ia32-libs package. The package included two files:


/usr/lib32/libstdc++.so.5
/usr/lib32/libstdc++.so.5.0.7


Please try and symlink the files that were part of the libstdc++5 install to the /usr/lib32 directories and let me know if that works. If so, we are probably only a week away from having a ppa that only needs the apt-get install sopcast-player and it will satisfy all its own dependencies automatically.

Hi Jason,
Thanks for all your efforts so far. I have had a dickens of a time getting sp-sc to work in 64-bit karmic.

I had the same missing library error as the others and I tried your suggestion of creating the sym links in the /usr/lib32 directory.

Now I get a different error:

owner@owner-laptop:~$ sp-sc
sp-sc: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64As you can see it is perhaps looking for a 32 bit ELF class so linking the 64 bit ones won't work.

I am going to try to hack in the 32bit libs and see what happens.

All,

I truly appreciate everyone's patience and gratitude regarding the 64-bit version. The good news is, its fixed. I created a package called lib32stdc++5 in my ppa, be sure to do an apt-get update before trying to install. This time I can verify the fix works as I finally went out and purchased a 64-bit machine, I'm sure it will prove to be a worthy investment. I hope that within the next week I can completely repackage SopCast Player so a new user would only have to add my ppa than do an apt-get install sopcast-player for a complete install. Thank you for your patience.

Cheers,
Jason

P.S. I know SopCast Player isn't the only package that suffered from the libstdc++5 issue, please feel free to spread the word about lib32stdc++5, I know a lot of older programs are suffering due to a lack of insight in removing this package from the default repositories.

All,

The good news keeps coming in. I just received an email from the author of the Sopcast client software which contained an updated version of the Linux binary that includes support for H264 channels. I will release this as part of SopCast Player just as soon as I can test it out a bit. If you can't wait to get your hands on it I have attached a copy of the client software. Just make sure that you have a symlink in your /usr/bin directory named sp-sc that points to the actual location of this file.

I will definitely pass on your appreciation to the folks at sopcast. To answer your question, no, the attached binary is not a beta. It was finalized 3 days ago and just hasn't been released to the general public yet. Glad to hear your happy with SopCast Player. I think it is a great platform, I just wish it was open source.

All,

I am very pleased to announce that my PPA now automates the complete process of installing SopCast Player. This is now the preferred method of installation as updating both the client software and SopCast Player itself will be managed completely transparent to the end-user. I suggest all current users un-install both SopCast Player and sp-auth then re-install through the PPA to make sure you are up-to-date (preferences and bookmarks will be unaffected). Installing the PPA is simple, instructions can be found at https://launchpad.net/~jason-scheunemann/+archive/ppa. Once the PPA installed perform the following:



$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install sopcast-player

You should now have a fully working version of SopCast Player installed. I'm sure some may wonder why this hasn't been done before. The reason is I didn't realize binaries from closed-source projects could be redistributed as part of open-source projects on Launchpad. A nicely detailed explanation of the policy can be found at https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/52348. It is great to see Ubuntu isn't limiting the use of great applications based solely on its license.

I plan on updating the player in the coming weeks to include features such as greater bookmark management, opening Sop links directly from Firefox (the most requested feature), and fixing the issues revolving around user preferences being lost. These upgrades will remain transparent to you from now on as long as you regularly update your computer. If you want to just update SopCast Player the command to do that is as follows:



$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install sopcast-player

I'm sure most of you will enjoy the changes as it will free you from looking for updated package versions. However, if you would like to manually update your computer I will try to keep the Google Code webpage (http://code.google.com/p/sopcast-player) as up-to-date as possible.

Cheers,
Jason

All,

I am very happy to hear people are having better success installing SopCast Player. If anyone has any problems at all please let me know and I will help them get everything figured out. If you are having issues, chances are someone else is as well.

Also, I want to give the users a voice in what they want to see next in SopCast Player. Everything is on the table: bug fixes, enhancements, a complete overhaul, whatever you want, it is up to you, the user. Please just leave a message of what you would like to see improved and at the end of next weekend I will have a pretty good idea of what the most important priorities for SopCast player will be. I will use this to create a road map for a 1.0 release of SopCast Player that I will be sure to share with everyone. I believe this program has become successful only through collaboration, from users and translators to people who have volunteered their time and skills. I truly appreciate everyone's efforts and I want to continue this approach to make this the best product it can be.

Cheers,
Jason

All,

Sorry but I made a mistake in the packaging of sp-auth that resulted in the client software never exiting which resulted in continued bandwidth usage until the computer was restarted. The issue has been fixed and verified in Hardy and Karmic (99% sure it will work on all, but if anyone has problems let me know). Make sure to do a:


$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

The former command will guarantee you fetch the newest file list from my ppa and the latter will actually perform the upgrade. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your continued support.

Cheers,
Jason

All,

I can verify that Hardy is now 100% supported. As part of the support the local version of VLC must be upgraded. This will require no action as an updated version of VLC for Hardy is also included in my PPA (version 0.9.9a). If you want your VLC to remain stock I regret to say you will be unable to use SopCast Player.

Cheers,
Jason

P.S. The VLC package is courtesy of Christoph Korn, packages were directly copied from his PPA to my own.

I seem to have the some what common problem of the connecting/retrying channel loop for all channels..even the one you listed a while back in the thread for generally always working. Pretty sure one in particular I am trying is up and running. Any ideas? Also, is there a new default for the channel guide?

Thanks a lot!

on a side note, what would i need to do to get vlc to serve as the player? seems to be what people do based on this thread.

BTW, I notice that the /usr/share/sp-auth is blank, if this directory is useless, why is it packed in the package?

This is for both you and chaopoch. Please try the following command to remove sp-auth and sopcast-player:



$ sudo aptitude purge sopcast-player
$ sudo aptitude purge sp-auth
$ sudo aptitude clean

I'm thinking it may be related to previous versions of sp-auth and sopcast-player. The purge completely removes the package and related files from your system (its a bit more thorough than just a standard remove command). The clean command removes all cached packages retrieved from your package manager (old packages you already have installed).

After you do that perform the following:

$ sudo apt-get install sopcast-player

This will ensure you get a fresh copy of the packages. Let me know how it goes.

From the command line type:

Let it run for a while (about two minutes) and then do a ctrl+c in the terminal to stop the program. Attach the resulting text file (test.txt).

I have to be honest I have no idea of what is going on. I also run Karmic 64 and haven't experienced any issues. Don't worry though, we'll get it figured out.

Now in SopCast Player select File -> Open and type in the same sop address as you used on the command line (sop://211.152.36.38:3912/6022). Let me know if it works for you.

Yes, it works by typing the address in File -> Open, but it still does not work while opening it in the channel guide, why?

To answer that I need to know a couple of things. What country do you live in and what localization are you using for your user profile?

1. I live in Taiwan

2. localization? are you talking about "locale'? if you are, the Locale is "zh_TW.UTF-8".

3. Sopcast Player worked perfectly in Ubuntu 9.04 (VLC 1.0.1), I upgraded the whole system to 9.10 (VLC 1.0.2), and then Sopcast player never works normally, first problem was dual windows, but I can opened all the channels, now the dual windows problem is fixed, but no channel is available to watch.

4. Why don't use MPlayer as the default player? and why can not MPlayer integrate into the Sopcast Player interface?

I tried to use MPlayer but there were serious issues with the sound and video becoming out of sync. VLC is able to remain in sync for a majority of the time and even when it does occasionally experience an out of sync condition it will self-correct.

The issue with the channel guide is that since you are using the zh_TW locale SopCast Player defaults to using http://channel.sopcast.com/gchlxml as the channel guide instead of http://www.sopcast.com/gchlxml. Please change the channel guide url in Edit -> Preferences, refresh the channel guide, and let me know if that fixes your issues.

I'm not a hardcore ubuntu-user, can you give a step-by-step explanation what I should with the commands? thanks for the help!

I would be happy to help. The first thing you need to know is that anytime you see the dollar sign ($) at the beginning of a line this usually means that whatever follows should be executed with a terminal window. To get to a terminal go to Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal. You may at times see the pound symbol (#) this indicates the following commands should also be executed at the terminal but as the root user. There is a command that will make you the root user just for one command and that is sudo. Whatever command following the pound can also be executed by using sudo. For example


# lspci

and


$ sudo lspci

are equivalent commands

With that said, any command performed as the root user should be carefully scrutinized prior to execution.

The two commands to execute to add my ppa are:


$ echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jason-scheunemann/ppa/ubuntu `lsb_release -cs` main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys CD30EE56

The first line adds my ppa to your software sources file and the second command adds my ppa key to your software sources keyring.

The only thing left to do now is install my software, this can be done by executing the following command:


$ sudo apt-get install sopcast-player

Note: When typing commands into the terminal be sure not to include the opening # or $ as these are just indicators of account access to be used during execution.

Good luck and please let me know if you need any additional assistance.

Cheers,
Jason

The command you ran is for Ubuntu only, remove the line you added in /etc/apt/sources.list and run the following from a command line:


echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jason-scheunemann/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

This is assuming you are using the latest version of mint.

Be sure to do a sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get install sopcast-player.

If your mint distribution is based on Karmic then replace the part of my ppa line that reads jaunty with karmic. ia-libs32 no longer includes lib32stdc++5 in Karmic, my ppa provides this package. Let me know how it works for you.

I didn't write in anything special to handle an external player from the command line. However, if you launch it from the command line it should retain its previous configuration. In other words, configure for external player before trying to use from command line.

mantorpcity,

I apologize, it looks like I may have misread your post. The command to get vlc working is just vlc. You don't have to worry about adding the stream location, that is taken care of for you. If you want other options you can just add them in as command line switches. The following are some examples:

VLC with no switches

vlc

VLC always on top of other windows

vlc --video-on-top

VLC starting in fullscreen

vlc --fulscreen

With enough experimenting you should be able to get VLC to behave the way you would like, I'm pretty sure it is even possible to setup recording through the command-line switches. If you come up with some interesting uses please post. Thank you and happy sopcasting.

Cheers,
Jason

I had a working configuration of Sopcast and VLC ( 0.9.8 ) on Hardy 8.04 LTS, but seeing that you had put updated versions of both on your PPA I thought I'd give it a go.

Unfortunately the Hardy package of VLC 0.9.9 (which is borrowed from Christoph Korn's PPA) seems to have a quarrel with itself, ending up with broken packages.


Short version:

In fact despite broken packages I could still run VLC 0.9.9 (as a temporary test), but sopcast-player failed to start altogether.

I too am in China... (Taiwan is or isnt' a part of China - not my argument).

I installed Sopcast and had the problem that said the Channel server was down and changed from the http://www.sopcast.com/gchlxml to the http://channel.sopcast.com/gchlxml and channels seem to be working. I did have a problem when I tried to change to another channel the python package started eating up 100% of one of my processors I had to force quit it. Also I have two screens opening with the feed presented on both of them. How do I fix this? Or do I just need to read further?

Hi Jason,

You were right. When I ran the update this morning your PPA kicked in and wanted to download and install your newer packages and this caused a conflict with the existing packages. I uninstalled and removed all. Reloaded and then reinstalled sopcast-player and sp-auth all from your PPA. Now the channel guide appears, it is able to update the channel database but most of the channels do not load. They are forever connecting.

I was able to open this - http://channel.sopcast.com/gchlxml in my browser (unable to surf to the default channel server) and retrieve a channel from it and use cut and paste it in the 'open' function of sopcast's menu and it worked - but I fear the same as chaopoch. I am unable to open them through the channel guide. One of the Chinese channels opened through the guide initially - but it took a LONG time - maybe 5 minutes and I think (sorry I am not sure) it was while I still had the default channel server url in.

Update: Just got National Geographic Page to load by finding the url in the browser page (as above) and cutting and pasting across. It still took 2 or 3 minutes though. It seems I cannot reconnect (added note - connected after 8 minutes) to this channel by clicking on the channel in the channel guide. So two questions... What is the problem with the channel guide? Is it normal for channels to take that long to connect? I used to use sopcast in XP also here in China and it was quick and quality. How can I fix this? Sorry I know that was three...

PS - Sorry I should have said that your new packages removed the two screen problem. The only problem I seem to have now is this channel loading time.

PS - Sorry I should have said that your new packages removed the two screen problem. The only problem I seem to have now is this channel loading time.

Go to Edit -> Preferences -> Channel Guide. Enter the address you stated that is working correctly, http://channel.sopcast.com/gchlxml, into the Channel Guide URL text box. Refresh and please let me know how that works for you.

Warm regards,
Jason
Again apologies... I should have been more specific. I have already done this as per your previous instructions to Chaopoch and others.

The problem exists still. Even other sop links take forever or don't load at all.

Should I be able to open this in sopcast? - sop://broker1.sopcast.com:3912/77551 - I can't. Most of the others take a LONG time or don't open (most never open - just always connecting then retrying). Either through direct entry of the sop url or through the channel guide.

Cheers for your quick reply help too...

first of all, thanks jason for your hard work. sopcast on linux was the last thing that kept me from fully switching from windows ;)

i use your app on linuxmint 8, works as a charm. i do have one issue that bugs me - i am unable to change aspect ratio on streams i watch, either through mplayer, or external player - in my case vlc.

can you, or anyone else, help me solve this?

(i went through vlc --help files and terminal commands, but couldn't find a solution)

Thanks in advance

Mercier,

I am glad to hear that you are having a positive experience with Linux, I am very excited that SopCast Player helped influence your decision to switch.

About your question addressing aspect ratio. I never really considered if that is possible. The stream itself is only offered in one format but it is conceivable to use vlc or mplayer to crop the video into an aspect ratio of your choice. I've included a link that details how to change the default fullscreen aspect ratio in vlc. I will also look into adding a setting that will allow the user to choose a standard aspect ratio. No promises on when I will be able to release an update though. Things at work are a bit busy right now.

All,

I really appreciate all the warm remarks about this program. In my role as the main programmer of SopCast Player I often hear kind words about my efforts which I truly appreciate. However, my contribution to this project is just a small part of the community effort that has driven its development. Currently this program has been translated into 34 languages. People have contributed code, ideas, bug submissions and artwork to make this program what it is today. The success of this project is a direct reflection on the quality of the individuals that I have been blessed to work with. I sincerely thank everyone that has contributed to this project.

Warmest Regards,
Jason

I'm having a problem when I use this app, and it seems to happen with certain channels...

When I connect to them I lose my system audio and even restarting alsa doesn't restore the sound -- I have to reboot.

It's probably VLC's fault. I'm having to use a lenny-backport version because Lenny is horribly outdated.

mockingbird,

You are the second user to report this issue. I believe it is a codec issue. It concerns me however that you stated you are loosing you system audio. Please clarify if you are unable to hear audio with SopCast Player or if it bringing down the audio for your whole system. Assuming it is a codec issue it will be a fairly simple fix if you are using the launchpad ppa for SopCast Player. I will just include whatever codec as a prereq for SopCast Player. If you are not using the ppa you will have to check the google code site for updates. I will be sure to keep everyone posted on the status of this bug.

Warm Regards,
Jason

Thanks for the response. I am losing all system audio, as I indicated that I tried to restart ALSA when this happened but to no avail.

I'm pretty sure it's related to the old version ov VLC I am using (0.9.9). I am stuck with it at the current moment because that's the only thing available from the Lenny backports.

Unlikely. The newer VLCs have dependencies that just won't fly with older versions of Debian. I will need Squeeze if I want to run anything past the early 1.x versions.

Ok, completely new to Linux, and using Ubuntu 9.10.
I have downloaded this software - Sopcast player 0.3.3 (complete file name is sopcast-player-0.3.3-1mdv2010.0.i586.rpm) from http://code.google.com/p/sopcast-player/, so I hope I have downloaded the right one. I followed the installation instructions, first installing the PPA and then the Sopcast player (didn’t install the Medibuntu repositories at this stage), using the command lines as instructed. Managed to figure out that these command lines go in the ‘Terminal’. Like I stated before, I am completely new to Linux (have been using windows like most), so this is all still Greek to me. Everything seemed to have gone fine in the terminal window, and I subsequently exited/closed the window. Now, I can’t figure out where this ‘installed’ Sopcast player is, or how to launch it? Any advice please.

Many thanks

Hi

If you have added the PPA for your ubuntu version then the sopcast player should appear in synaptic.

Or from terminal sudo apt-get install sopcast-player

This will also install VLC as the built in player.

I would make sure medibuntu repos are added to your sources.

You should not need the rpm file.

Hope this helps

Clive

Hi!

I have the latest version of Sopcast and VLC through the repos (http://ppa.launchpad.net/jason-scheunemann/ppa/ubuntu karmic main), but I can't manage to launch the VLC window as external player. What is it supposed I have to do? I've put 'vlc.desktop' in the external player option of the Preferences menu, but got no results.

Any help?

After adding repositories you must do a:

$ sudo apt-get update

This will pull all the latest package information from the PPA, until this step is completed apt doesn't know about the packages contained in the ppa.

When I tried to open a sopcast link, I get this message from Firefox:

First time this happened I got a message about the plugin path. Not sure how to fix it.

The problem is the python bindings (used to access vlc) has been updated for version 1.1.x. As of this moment I am unable to figure out how to gracefully deal with two different versions of the bindings (the newest version will only work with vlc 1.1.x while the older bindings are required for anything prior). Be assured that I am working to fix this issue. Would you like to assist me in the troubleshooting?

Cheers,
Jason

All,

The python bindings are currently being updated for vlc 1.1.x. An change in the underlying data structures have forced the bindings team to retool the bindings. The team is currently waiting on the vlc API to stabilise before a release is issued. Sorry for any inconvenience. I will be sure to update SopCast Player as soon as the new bindings are released.

Cheers,
Jason

I'm having problem trying to associate sop protocol with sopcast-player in Firefox 3.6.3. I can run sopcast-player by itself just fine on Lucid 10.04. I've already added the following via "about:config":

string name: network.protocol-handler.app.sop
string value: sopcast-player


When I tried to open a sopcast link, I get this message from Firefox:

"Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (sop) isn't associated with any program."

Firefox didn't give me dialog box where I can choose application like it used to.

Did you install from my ppa?

Did you install from my ppa?

I did, and instead of opening a channel, it goes to that endless Connecting -> Retrying channel -loop.
What should I do next/instead?

Please try to uninstall sopcast-player then re-install from the command line. Please post the output.

Cheers,

Yes, I installed it from the PPA. I reinstalled and it still doesn't work. Here's the output from reinstall:

It sounds like something may have happened to gconf. gconf is where associations are kept. Try deleting your gconf (this WILL erase all user settings for current programs) and then through synaptic choose to fully remove sopcast-player and then reinstall. I have the same setup (10.04 with FF 3.6.3) and mine worked out of the box. Let me know how this works for you.

The problem is the python bindings (used to access vlc) has been updated for version 1.1.x. As of this moment I am unable to figure out how to gracefully deal with two different versions of the bindings (the newest version will only work with vlc 1.1.x while the older bindings are required for anything prior). Be assured that I am working to fix this issue. Would you like to assist me in the troubleshooting?

Cheers,
Jason

Aha, the python bindings. Perhaps Sopcast needs to be branched for the post-VLC-1.1x expansion?

Thanks Jason, I can assist as much as possible. Tell me what you need me to do. I am a bit of a novice as far as python is concerned, your app rocks (when it works).

I'm using KDE (Kubuntu) and my .gconf folder is empty. Maybe this is the reason, but it worked before under 9.10.

Well the sp-auth package's latest version in synaptic is 3.2.6~ppa~lucid7.
I used these (http://code.google.com/p/sopcast-player/wiki/Installation) instructions.

im missing lib32stdc++5.
Is it a different ppa for lucid?
Synaptic shows LP-PPA-jason-scheunemann/lucid as one source.

I'm trying to open an external player (VLC-Desktop), but nothing happens when the buffer is full and it is supposed the image would be displayed. Any help on this issue?

My specs:

I have the same problem with links in firefox not starting sopcast-player. I installed it via the repos.

When it didn't work (it works from the Gnome Menu) I tried purging sopcast-player, renaming .gconf and reinstalling.
No luck.
I'm on a (relatively) clean Lucid install.

I'm having a specific issue with the SopCast Player. One channel in particular does not have sound, thought the video is great. All of the other channels I can get up and running have both sound and video. I've run this specific channel (NDSportsTalk) on a computer with Windows 7 64-bit and it has sound and video so I know the problem is on my end. My HTPC runs Ubuntu Lucid 32-bit (the only OS installed at this time) and I'd prefer to watch TV in the living room. Any ideas?

If I need to reinstall my OS as Lucid 64-bit I can. My system has enough power to upgrade.

If you like me and have VLC 1.1.0 rc The Luggage (It keeps getting installed, and haven't figured out from which third party ppa) then try these:

http://code.google.com/p/gsopcast/
GTK version of sopcast, has no problem with VLC

http://code.google.com/p/qsopcast/ \
QT version of sopcast, has no problem with VLC

Both are a little outdated, it appears there has been more development in the main sopcast-player in this topic.

Both have difficulty with downloading the menu, but you can manually choose.

http://www.sopcast.com/gchlxml
http://www.sopcast.cn/gchlxml
http://channel.sopcast.com/gchlxml

The only channels which I can watch with my384kb line are the mobile ones. Wish there were a lot more. Please think of those in the third world with low-bandwidth.

Also English subtitles for some of the Chinese Channels would be excellent. Wondering if there is a way to get the subtitles from opensubtitle.org or somewhere else and watch live? Probably wishful thinking.

This is a great project, wish it would update the python bindings so that no VLC conflicts.

Tipdrinker. i'm a total noob when it comes to linux but i think i found your solution as i had the same problem as you did when installing sopcast-player. it appears that the libstdc++ package is not included in the ubuntu repositories so you have to download it and install it manually. http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gcc-3.3/libstdc++5_3.3.6-18_i386.deb (http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gcc-3.3/libstdc++5_3.3.6-18_i386.deb)
once installed, open terminal and run.
sudo apt-get install sopcast-player sp-auth

this worked for me. hope it helps. enjoy. :)

Is it because it is 64 bit os or have I done something else wrong? I can watch a sopcast stream in Firefox if I run "./sp-sc-auth sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/6001 3908 8908 > /dev/null &" in my sp-auth folder and then open http://localhost:8908/tv.asf in Firefox.

Regards

Edit: Suddenly "sudo apt-get install sopcast-player" worked. I think the second part (after &&) was aborted because of the above error.

sudo apt-get install sopcast-player
Reading package lists... Done

sopcast-player is already the newest version.

The gui works now and it looks great. =)


2nd edit:

I also got Firefox to open sop-links after finding this guide:
http://maketecheasier.com/install-sopcast-in-ubuntu/2010/06/10

network.protocol-handler.expose-all < needed to be toggled to False to ask location of sopcast-player the first time
Set location to /usr/bin/sopcast-player after you click a sop-link
Then toggle back the value in network.protocol-handler.expose-all to True

Now sopcast-player opens up a new player everytime I click a sop-link. *smiles happily*

Whoops

Spoke too soon !!!!!

Now getting broken packages message in synaptic and the only way to get rid is to uninstall.

Have tried to do the complete install again but same result.

I think the problem is that I,m installing the lucid PPA on a Maverick system.

Will wait for the proper maverick PPA to arrive methinks.

I have sopcast player working on another box so that is not a problem.

I had to completely remove ia32 and lib32stdc++5 and install older versions and also theres a fix for VLC versions 1.0.0 and higher for this to work. I have all the files i needed to install this but dunno where I can upload them if anybody wanted them for 64bit.

Hallo Jason,
may I ask if there will be a sopcast player for Maverick in your ppa?
Just asking cause I like to include it in my Maverick-post-install script;
no problem to install the lucid-debs manually.
Thank you again for your work!

Hi everybody,

I'm posting something on this topic because despite all my efforts, i still can't use Sopcast.

I've been trying to install it for more than 3 months now. Over this period of time, i've done many MANY tutorials. I've uninstalled Sopcast player dozens of times, installed lot of stuff, but still can't get it to work.

At the moment, i can actually launch Sopcast player. But it won't load any channels. Wether i use one of the "basic" channels there is in the software (like CCTV-5) or try some links i know are online, it doesn't give me anything.

What i get is "Connecting", and "Trying the canal again" that's it (actually it's in spanish : "Conectando" and "Reintentando canal")

At this point i just don't know what to do. Do i have a problem with my ports ? If so, how could i solve it ?


I'll hope you'll be able to help me because after 3 months i'm starting to get lose definitely my hope.

Thanks a ton !

...this used to happen to me back in the karmic days;after reinstalling all related packages and config files it worked-no idea what was causing this issue.
Or have you set "static" ports?

October 12th, 2010, 06:29 PM
I haven't set static ports, no.

To be honest , you pretty much crush me with your answer :p , cause I feel like i have already done what you advise me to do , like 50 times :p
So i was really hoping to have another answer lol.

Couldn't something else be the problem ??

Pretty much the same thing here; 'connecting', 'retrying'.... which ever channel I chose. Is there some firewall related issues or something? Ports on my router that ought be opened up? (Forgive me, I don't really understand these things!)

Adding the ppa and installing sopcast-player breaks apt for me (in maverick using the lucid .debs), I have to manually locate and rm the packages and the ppa and 'apt-get -f install' to get my package manager working again. When I'm back at home I will do it again and post the errors here.

Probably you get the same error when installing the Libstcc before sopcast.,
but try it (http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gcc-3.3/libstdc++5_3.3.6-18_amd64.deb).
If same error,you could temporarily uninstall the ia32libs package to avoid the conflict...
I am not on a 64 bit machine in the moment,so I do not have the problem
and cannot reproduce your issue.

But I'd like to know how can I remove some Bookmarks?
Please help.

Don't know if you ever got the answer, but for anyone else, check in ~/.pySopCast. Your bookmarks are stored in the sqlite pySopCast.db database. To edit them, you'll need an application like SQLite Database Browser (in the repositories).

I'm playing around with Natty, a clean install except for my old /home. I installed sopcast-player from the ferramroberto repository and the program runs fine when started on its own. But links won't work in Firefox, I get the 'sop protocol not associated with any program' message.

Not sure how much Natty differs from Maverick here, but the gconf settings seem fine.
Command points to /usr/bin/sopcast-player %s (I tried "%s" too)
Enabled and 'needs terminal' disabled.

In Firefox I have 'network.protocol-handler.app.sop customised* string sopcast-player'

*Or words to that effect, it's in Swedish.

Any ideas?

Solved it: In Firefox, I needed to go to Edit --> Options --> Programs and add the path to sopcast-player manually for the 'sop' entry. It was set to 'always ask' but since it didn't do that... :)

Version 0.6.0 is out on my google code page http://sopcast-player.googlecode.com. Several bug fixes including fixes for fullscreen and hidden controls mode. Let me know if you are having any issues.

Please Note: I have submitted a build request for version 0.6.0 through my PPA, however the build servers are extremely backed up because of Natty. It may be until the 5th of May until the update is available through my ppa. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please give it a try and tell me what you think.

Cheers,

Hi!

For those of your unable to open the sop links automatically from chrome or firefox in Ubuntu Natty, you have to change the file /usr/share/applications/sopcast-player.desktop with the following text:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=SopCast Player
GenericName=Internet Television
Comment=GUI front-end to SopCast
TryExec=sopcast-player
Exec=sopcast-player %U
Icon=sopcast-player
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=GNOME;AudioVideo;P2P;Video;TV;GTK;
StartupNotify=true
MimeType=video/x-ms-wmv;x-scheme-handler/sop;

Once done, you just have to run:
sudo update-desktop-database and without restarting Ubuntu, the sop links work.

The modifications I did where based on this article: How to configure chrome to open magnet url's with deluge? (http://askubuntu.com/questions/44849/how-to-configure-chrome-to-open-magnet-urls-with-deluge)
I would be nice if the changes where submitted to the code ppa directly.

Hello,

I would be happy if you could help me.

I use Ubuntu 11.10 and I installed SopCast Player. After a while, the program refused to start. I use 2ClickUpdate and it seems that the application has replaced the program with Ferramosca's version. I uninstalled the program and I installed Ferramosca's program. After a while, even this program has not started. I uninstalled and reinstalled, alternatively, both programs, but none could be started. I do not know what could be done in this situation.

I tried manually adding the oneiric packages to Precise (after ensuring that the dependencies were installed),and I get a segmentation fault :(

Does anyone have any info on how to get sopcast going on Precise Pangolin 64 bit?

wiresquire
April 7th, 2012, 04:43 AM
Well, to answer my own question - kind of...

a) You can install the latest windows Sopcast player under wine.

b) The problem with the ubuntu/linux sopcast player appears to be in the sopcast-player package. You can actually still use sp-sc from the sp-auth package, and manually run mplayer/VLC to view the stream.
This seemed to be working fine for me during a short test :D
So, to summarise what I did:
*install ia32-libs, vlc, libvlc-dev
*download and install sp-auth package from repository. Note that I downloaded the oneiric ocelot AMD64 bit package for my 64 bit Precise install.
*run sp-sc, eg
sp-sc sop://broker.sopcast.com:1234/5678 3908 8908 > /dev/null
*open up vlc and select Media/Open Network Stream, and enter http://localhost:8908/tv.asf

Enjoy your sopcast stream

I had the same problem but solved by installing sopcast from ppa:ferramroberto/sopcast. After installastion I got an segmetation fault but inserting only a # on the first position of the line import vlc_1_0_x in /usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/VLCWidget.py solved this issue and Sopcast is now working fine.

Segmentation fault is still happening from time to time when opening channels. I do though suspect that it only happens when trying to open dead sop-links, but do not know how to confirm this at this point.

I can tell you my ppa is working (ppa:Jason-Scheunemann/ppa). The fix was to finally drop support for pre 1.1.0 versions of sopcast. If you have any further issues please post a support ticket at my google code page and I will fix it as soon as possible.

Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/Jason-Scheunemann/ppa/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/Jason-Scheunemann/ppa/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found

However, this worked in Mint 12 with Cinnamon:
ppa:ferramroberto/sopcast

Thanks, folks!
