Ubuntu – How to watch Acestream / Sopcast Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Have you guys used Acestreams?
The repository has not yet issued for 16.04 LTS, but besides, it might not be free anymore.

Is anyone watching Acestreams/Sopcast with any other software + where can I find such software?

Thank you!

It's now one step installation:

sudo snap install acestreamplayer

and to run it:

acestreamplayer.engine --client-console

If running the above commands after the successful snap installation fails with a command not found error, you might need to add /snap/bin to your $PATH or run it using the following commands:

snap run acestreamplayer.engine --client-console
snap run acestreamplayer
