SopcastSports 0.1 for Linux

Comments Off on SopcastSports 0.1 for Linux

SopcastSports is a Tcl/Tk GUI for the linux version of sopcast tailored towards watching live sporting events. SopcastSports strips live game information from the web (www.myp2p.eu) and presents a list of sopcast streams, sorted by game, to the user. SopcastSports allows the viewing of multiple simultaneous streams and provides greater information regarding the status of the stream than other sopcast clients.

If you use sopcast primarily for watching sporting events or simply dislike using sopcast on the command line then this application may be of use to you. Feel free to modify the code and redistribute as you see fit, however, please share any updates to the code you make with the community. I wrote SopcastSports in a couple of afternoons so it’s far from perfect – if you find and fix any bugs or code any improvements I would love to hear from you.

Requirements for running SopcastSports:

  • SopcastSports Tcl/Tk Files
  • Tcl/Tk interpretor (tested against tcl/tk 8.4)
  • The Tix library for Tk
  • sp-sc (linux sopcast client)
  • mplayer
  • wget

All these applications are available from the Synaptic Package Manager or equivalent with the exception of the SopcastSports files which can be downloaded via the link above.
