linux streaming


Current version: v1.0.0



(info from a current user) Hello everyone. 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 today I built a .deb-package. SopLaunch is the package i built, and it uses the sp-sc command found in gtk-sopcast and you also need VLC. Installing: Download the two deb-packages and install them starting with gtk-sopcast. Using: 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 and opening the stream. Known bugs: *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 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 Source code: Knock your self out. Note *The dependency of the package gtk-sopcast can easily be removed in the future and be replaced by including the sp-sc-binary. *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.
