June 12th, 2010

If you are installing sopcast player on a X86 machine, you can read this article:

http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-install-sopcast-player-in-ubuntu-9-10karmic.html.

But if you want to install sopcast on a AMD64 machine, you need to manually install sp-auth as said in here:

In summary (for AMD64):

  • add the sopcast player PPA:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jason-scheunemann/ppa
  • update the source list:
    sudo apt-get update
  • install sp-auth:
    wget http://download.easetuner.com/download/sp-auth.tgz
    tar xzf sp-auth.tgz
    sudo mv sp-auth /usr/local/share
    sudo ln -s /usr/local/share/sp-auth/sp-sc-auth /usr/local/bin/sp-sc
  • install spcast-player:
    sudo apt-get install sopcast-player
