I use Sopcast on Linux and got tired of gtk-sopcast not working, and wanted something more appealing than a commandline shell script, so I made a GUI for sopcast using wxWidgets and I built a .deb-package that can be found on Launchpad
Download and install the latest version from Launchpad.
Also, starting with SopLaunch 0.23 you will need sp-sc-auth in your /usr/bin, so head over to www.sopcast.com , download and install sopcast.
Type in the command soplaunch in a terminal or something.
The soplaunch GUI should now start. Type in the address to the stream and press launch.
The program will "freeze" for 20 seconds, because soplaunch waits 20 seconds for the stream to buffer before launching VLC/MPlayer/other and opening the stream.
*The program "freezes" when opening a stream. There probably is a simple workaround for this, but for now I just want to see if someone is actually going to use this program.
The way Soplaunch handles the sp-sc-auth process is awful. The stream is launched as a separate process, so when you want to close the stream you manually have to look up and kill the process sp-sc
Avaliable on Launchpad
*The code looks like crap.
This version is only a beta, mostly to see if anyone seems to use the program. I will fix the bugs, process handling and dependencies if anyone shows interest in the program.
