I was trying to use acestream/sopcast on Ubuntu 17.04/17.10 but have no luck in getting it installed.
I tried the steps mentioned on the below post which is for 16.04 LTS, however I was not successful.
As per steps mentioned at How to watch Acestream / Sopcast Ubuntu 16.04 LTS?:
#Install acestream-engine echo 'deb http://repo.acestream.org/ubuntu/ trusty main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/acestream.list sudo wget -O - http://repo.acestream.org/keys/acestream.public.key | sudo apt-key add - sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install acestream-engine #Install Kodi (XBMC) sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install kodi kodi-pvr-iptvsimple kodi-audioencoder-* #Install addon p2p-streams for Kodi (video)
(Here I dont want to install KODI and want to run with the default VLC player).
From the above answer, it is asking to add the repository which is built for "trusty", but it is old Ubuntu version. What should be done for newer Ubuntu version as acestream repository is not available?
EDIT – I have already tried installing the windows version using wine (steps are shared by kuni_zdenek below). But I am looking for a more general way to install inside Ubuntu.
