    Opened sopcast and chose the channel. Note that Sopcast running in Wine will NOT display the video - so I had to use VLC. Sopcast tells me I am connected to the channel but the screen is black.

    I opened VLC (Mac version 1.1.3) and in the pulldown menu FILE - use OPEN NETWORK.

    In the address bar I typed http://127.0.0.1:8902/ and bingo it worked with no problems.
    Its kinder like the instructions i made for StreamTorrent under Linux with Wine...

    Thanks

    Thanks I have downloaded the file and will try it. I no longer use Virtualbox as I don't want to keep buying Windows. I wil let you know if it works with Lion.

    Maybe your browser is blocking it in some way as it works for me.

    Hey guyz be a a little careful with this as i dont know how it was made or compiled as its not a official SopCast product!!!


    A comment on ThePirateBay that may help it work for you...
    Works on Lion but poor quality and jerky on full screen. but can paste ulr in Sopcast. Need link from Firefox enabled. If you use Mac version of VLC you can go to file> open media and paste http://localhost:8902/tv.asf or http://127.0.0.1:8902 it has a brilliant picture.

    I have 2 problems, 1. I need my browser to link to Firefox (but would use other browser if appropriate), 2. Loss of quality on full screen and sometimes a bit jerky. I can get round the link by clicking the ULR link then cutting and pasting into Sopcast. I get the occasional with a box popping up with a reference to Windows Media Play, which is included in the software, asking you to update but clicking it does not work? Can anyone help with these 2 problems please?

    This all sounds like some kind of wrapper using WINE or CrossOver...?

    Then explain to me how you have WMP on a MAC.

    If it was "REAL" it would be listed here - http://sopcast.com/download/ and not on a torrent site also look at the size of the download compared to the Windows, Linux and Andriod versions.

    Still not happy contact the SopCast team for help - info_at_sopcast.org

    Default Sopcast on Mac

    I apologise it does seem to be a wrapper and Sopcast and WMP are included in the wrapper. I was hoping for some help on my attachment, with the error message not being active. I do realise that Sopcast do not produce a Mac version. although I know there have been requests to do so. Will Sopcast help if it is not produced by them?

    I use the Mac version of Firefox, but I cannot open the Mac version of Sopcast direct from a link in a web page. Please can anyone help?

    That could be like the same issue Linux had...?

    1. In Firefox, in the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter.
    2. Right-click anywhere in the grid, choose New, then String.
    3. In the Enter the preference name prompt, type in network.protocol-handler.app.sop and press OK.
    4. In the Enter string value prompt, type sopcast-player and press OK.

    4.5 In about:config set network.protocol-handler.expose-all to false
    5. Try to open sop:// link on your favorite website and you will be presented with dialog box where you can search location of sopcast player. Navigate to ~/usr/bin and point to sopcast-player and click OK.
    6. OK out of dialog box and now all sop:// links should open sopcast player automatically.
    7. To stop getting prompted for EVERY link, after opening the first sop:// link you should undo 4.5 above (change it back to true).

    Well thats just where SopCast is located on Linux all you will have to do is change to where it is on your MAC...

    It is unstable some times please see my attachment. Can you explain whatit means please?
