    wow - it is working!!! I can now paste sop://broker... addresses into the bottom bit without getting segmentation faults (most of the time).

    When I first did it, nothing happened. After some 10 minutes or so I decided to click on "player" after I noticed that "record" was selected - doh! mplayer came up a treat This might also be the solution to one of the problems mentioned earlier (somebody who could do everything but watch - click on "player").

    Soooo happy to be able to watch footy at last
    Thanks to all!

    EDITED THREAD BY h0me5k1n
    FOLLOW TOMBOTTS INSTRUCTIONS IN POST 48 OF THIS THREAD

    These instructions will install the GUI and then update the Sopcast executable to the latest version

    # Get the sopcast GUI deb file
    wget http://linuxtoy.org/files/deb/gtk-so...2.8-1_i386.deb
    # Install the deb
    sudo dpkg -i gtk-sopcast_0.2.8-1_i386.deb
    # get the newest version of sopcast
    wget http://sopcast.referencias.tv/download/sp-auth.tgz
    # extract it
    tar xzf sp-auth.tgz
    # move the sopcast executable to the directory where the GUI requires it to be and renaming it (the newest version from sopcast is named sp-sc-auth and not sp-sc)
    sudo cp sp-auth/sp-sc-auth /usr/bin/sp-sc
    # root should own the sp-sc executable - probably not required
    chown root:root /usr/bin/sp-sc

    To run it either type gsopcast at the commandline or select "applications" - "sound & video" then "Sopcast TV Player". You need to wait a few seconds for the channel list to fill. If you have any problems run gsopcast from a terminal and you can see any errors in the terminal output.

    Code:
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    This is what I get when trying to play a channel (not showing in the channel list as I changed that URL and lost the original so no list now) and when trying to play it with the command line option (sp-sc)

    Re: HOWTO install sopcast tv over p2p on Ubuntu

    OK so I got it to work without segmentation faults What ports do I need to forward on my router (and firewall) to enable it incomming connections on it?

    The official FAQ has this:

    Code:
    For SopClient, recommends open 3900-13900 ports for inbound connections.
    But thats just silly I don't want to open so many ports! Isn't there a way to restrict it to maybe just a few ports? opening 10k ports doesn't sound very secure

    Note that the link is different from the displayed text

    Or just browse to via Firefox, download and install - http://linuxtoy.org/files/deb/gtk-sopcast_0.2.8-1_i386.deb

    Seems to be a problem with the second link, I have downloaded the latest release from Sopcast's site and upped to my server. This will be a quicker download for all Europeans.
    I have also added instructions for installing the QSopcast GUI.
    QSopcast handles manually adding Sopcast channels much better than GSopcast, in my opinion.

    This will install the latest version of Sopcast, GSopcast GUI and the QSopcast Gui and set-up Firefox to open Sopcast Channels with Sopcast

    # Get the GSopcast GUI deb file
    wget http://freetowatchtv.co.uk/images/ub...2.8-1_i386.deb
    # Install the deb
    sudo dpkg -i gtk-sopcast_0.2.8-1_i386.deb
    # get the newest version of sopcast
    wget http://freetowatchtv.co.uk/images/ubuntu/sp-auth.tgz
    # extract it
    tar xzf sp-auth.tgz
    # move the sopcast executable to the directory where the GUI requires it to be and renaming it (the newest version from sopcast is named sp-sc-auth and not sp-sc)
    sudo cp sp-auth/sp-sc-auth /usr/bin/sp-sc
    # root should own the sp-sc executable - probably not required
    sudo chown root:root /usr/bin/sp-sc

    #Download the QSopcast GUI and Extract
    wget http://freetowatchtv.co.uk/images/ub...sopcast.tar.gz
    tar xzf qsopcast.tar.gz
    #Copy to /usr/bin and change ownership
    sudo cp qsopcast /usr/bin/
    sudo chown root:root /usr/bin/qsopcast
    #Create shortcut to qsopcast
    sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/qsopcast.desktop

    Enter the following into the blank text document, then save and close

    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=QSopcast
    Comment=Sopcast TV Player
    Exec=/usr/bin/qsopcast
    Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/gsopcast.xpm
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Categories=Application;AudioVideo;

    You should now have QSopcast and Sopcast TV Player icons under Sound & Video in your menu.

    I find that QScopast is much better if you want to manually add in sopcast channels.

    To get Firefox to open Sopcast links with QSopcast do the following:

    Go into firefox and enter URL: "about:config".
    Right click, select new and string.

    Set string name to:
    network.protocol-handler.app.sop

    Set value to:
    qsopcast

    Now when clicking on a Sopcast url (from http://www.myp2p.eu/ for example) Qsopcast should launch

    If you prefer to use GSopcast follow the above steps but substitute qscopast with gsopcast

    Some people will also need to install the following (If you don't already have and KDE applications installed)

    sudo apt-get install qt3-apps-dev vlc build-essential

    sudo apt-get install libqt3-mt

    Thanks to h0me5k1n

    Tom.
