    Smile PPStream or other w/out virtualbox

    Hello all! I've searched high and low for the answer to this question: Has anyone (recently) been able to get software such as PPStream (specifically for watching chinese tv) to work on linux?

    I realize that virtualbox is an option, however, I do not have a legal copy of windows to use, and would like to avoid windows altogether if I may.

    On a side note, does anyone know of any other option/website for watching chinese tv on my linux box?

    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: I forgot to explain what PPstream is for those who don't know. It's a neat chinese windows app that uses p2p to stream video. There are hundreds of channels, of not only chinese tv but western movie channels, sports, news, etc. It's awesome.

    Yeah my girlfriend has PPS on her XP box; if I could just get PPS running on Ubuntu she'd agree to use Ubuntu instead of XP, but I haven't been able to find a way...

    Sopcast is available, and broadcasts Chinese stations. Doesn't have huge "archives" like PPS though.

    I'm working on getting sopcast playing, although there seems to be quite a few workarounds needed in order to get it running in jaunty. Thanks for the input, though!

    I think there is a native linux version of ppstream on there website. There is also a pps plugin for totem.

    I came across this video tutorial online, and PPS works fine on my Ubuntu 10.10
