2.library dependency
If you don't have stdc++ 5 in your system, please download the libstdcpp5.tgz from, and copy the
to /usr/lib/

The copy command must be:
cp -a* /usr/lib
With '-a' parameter, and you must login as root.


A simple example of sp-sc command line.
./sp-sc-auth sop:// 3908 8908 > /dev/null &
Start to transfer channel 6098, and you can play it on 8908 with VLC or mplayer
by open the url: http://localhost:8908/tv.asf

Thanks and enjoy it.

This is the readme file of sp-sc-auth: in fact, Sopcast for Linux consist in just this little file you can execute, available here. No GUI, so it should be easy to write a plugin for Serviio that enable to play a sopcast stream and to save it as an online sources.

An exampe of a real sop channel: sop://

Also, the required in Ubuntu is inside the available package 'libstdc++5:i386':
/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ (wich is a link to) /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/
But ideally, for any kind of Linux distro, it could be easy to copy also sp-sc-auth to /usr/bin alongside in just one move, adding a little howto with the plugin.

So I'm here to ask if this is as easy as I'm saying or not, couse I'n not able to code and I can't even figure this out too. And obviusly I'm here to request, kindly :) I'm sure it would be very appreciate by a lot of Serviio users.
