Only two items I couldn't translate: "QC" and "QS" which I have no idea what they're referring to, but unless they're some clever abbreviations in English I'd assume whatever they mean they could simply be directly copied into the Swedish version.

    Cheers again!
    from here:

    5.2 QS & QC

    Two parameters could be used to monitor the quality of a channel. One is the quality of source (QS) and another is the quality of client network (QC).

    QS stands for the quality of the channel source. Low QS value means the SopServer does not receive enough channel content, and it will result in the poor quality of all viewers. If you feed the channel with an external media server's stream, and SopServer presents the poor QS, you should check the connection between SopServer and the media server to see whether the connection can transfer the stream data efficiently and integrally.

    QC stands for the average buffer level of all viewers. The high QC value means the p2p network is working greatly and every watcher can receive most of the channel content in its buffer. If a channel has a low QC, you can check
    1) whether the SopServer have enough bandwidth to support the p2p distribution.
    2) whether most peers in p2p network have not good internet access to share the stream data.

    On SopServer, when a channel is broadcasting, you can monitor QS in "server status info" area. You can click the blue "quality bar" on WebPlayer or SopPlayer to see the quality of a channel, QC.
    but i wouldn't translate, like kbps

    I can see your question about translation was answered. I just wanted to say thank you for supporting SopCast Player. Your translation has been added to source and will be released as part of the distro packages in the 0.2.2 release which is due out this weekend. Thank you again, and keep up the great work!

    Cheers,
    Jason

    I saw the same problem since python was updated in Jaunty. Because when Python compiles, it embeds its magic number in the resulting .pyc, so when that is loaded against another version of python, things go boom.

    To fix the problem, go to /usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/ and delete all of the .pyc files. But there is a direct reference to .pyc in the launcher, so you must also go to /usr/bin/sopcast-player, and change .pyc to .py. After that, it should run for you.

    Loosely speaking, mind you. Under Jaunty, the channel guide is throwing an exception when you load:

    You must not use 8-bit bytestrings unless you use a text_factory that can interpret 8-bit bytestrings (like text_factory = str). It is highly recommended that you instead just switch your application to Unicode strings.
    That does not happen under Intrepid (python 2.5.2).

    What version of Python are you running?

    Re: New App: SopCast Player for Ubuntu

    I installed the sopcast player from source but when i refresh the "SopCast Player Channel Guide" button it doesn`t appear any channel. It download in my home directory the xml file channel_guide.xml in .pySopCast directory but it doesn`t appear in the list.

    Maybe i did something wrong, but if i open a sop address manually it works.

    btw... i am using opensuse 11.1 and python 2.6

    Cheers!

    There is a known issue with using python 2.6. I am working on a fix for it but I am unsure how long it will take to publish. A workaround is to invoke the executable with the python2.5 command. I will publish a fix as soon as I can find a viable solution.

    Cheers,

    Yes, just change /usr/bin/sopcast-player as follows:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    /usr/bin/python2.5 /usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/sopcast-player.py $@
