How to install Sopcast in Lenny?

Postby ravisista » 2009-03-21 14:45

Anyone did this? I downloaded the *.deb package from Sopcast site and ran into dependency issues. The vlc version it requires (> 9.0) is more than what lenny has (8.x) and so on. If you can point to a how-to, that'd be appreciated. Thanks.

It's designed for newer versions of the supporting packages than Stable has. I suggest upgrading to Testing.

Testing doesnt have VLC 0.9 yet either.

I used to run the commandline version of sopcast (i think i had to compile it myself) with a frontend called soplaunch about a year ago, not very friendly (you didnt get a list of channels) and pretty buggy, but at least it worked for the few weeks i needed it.

These are the top dependencies for sopcast-player:
Code: Select all
sopcast-player
  Depends: python (>= 2.4.3)
  Depends: sp-auth (>= 3.0.1)
  Depends: vlc (>= 0.9.4)
python
  Depends: python-minimal (= 2.5.4-2)
  Depends: python2.5 (>= 2.5.4)

I assumed that you downloaded the *.deb from this site. I'm using this player but in debian sid/unstable and VLC is indeed version 0.9+.

garrincha: No, I did not. I downloaded it from Sopcast's website. Are you suggesting this site has the latest and greatest than the official Sopcast site? If so, I'll try it today evening from home. Thanks.

The site is for GUI sopcast-player frontend with channel list that you can refresh. I use it as it's more convenient than using the sp-auth from the terminal as it keep crashing a lot. The latter you don't need VLC, you could use mplayer or any other player.

Fyi, the sp-auth is the same versions in both sites. You will still need sp-auth installed to run sopcast-player.

If you want to install VLC 0.9.x in Lenny, you'll have to build the packages. I did it myself. Here's a HowTo.

I'm using lenny (stable).
You don't need to use VLC, you can use mplayer:

First, you install the libraries:

apt-get install libstdc++5

and you install also mplayer:

apt-get install mplayer

Download SopCast from:
http://download.easetuner.com/download/sp-auth.tgz

And in the README.txt are the instructions:
In a shell inside the directory where the program is installed:

./sp-sc-auth sop://211.152.36.37:3912/60707 3908 8908 > /dev/null &

after this comand in the same shell:

gmplayer http://localhost:8908/tv.asf

Bye!
