How to Install Sopcast 0.8.5 on Ubuntu 13.04

In this article I will show you how to install Sopcast 0.8.5 on Ubuntu 13.04.

Sopcast is needed if you want to watch TV channels online. Actually, it is the best player (as I know of) that allows you to watch online television channels.

This installation is not easy, but I will explain the installation process step by step.

Install the Medibuntu repo to satisfy the VLC dependecy requirements and update the system:

$ sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list && sudo apt-get update

Install the keyring and update the system again:

$ sudo apt-get --yes -q --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update

Next, download the sp-auth and sopcast-player for your system architecture:

Download sp-auth for 32 bit systems:

$ wget https://launchpad.net/~jason-scheunemann/+archive/ppa/+files/sp-auth_3.2.6~ppa1~precise3_i386.deb

Download sp-auth for 64 bit systems:

$ wget https://launchpad.net/~jason-scheunemann/+archive/ppa/+files/sp-auth_3.2.6~ppa1~precise3_amd64.deb

Download sopcast-player for 32 bit systems:

$ wget https://launchpad.net/~jason-scheunemann/+archive/ppa/+files/sopcast-player_0.8.5~ppa~precise1_i386.deb

Download sopcast-player for 64 bit systems:

$ wget https://launchpad.net/~jason-scheunemann/+archive/ppa/+files/sopcast-player_0.8.5~ppa~precise1_amd64.deb

Install sp-auth:

$ sudo dpkg -i sp-auth_3.2.6~ppa1~precise3_*.deb

Fix the dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get -f install

Install sopcast-player:

$ sudo dpkg -i sopcast-player_0.8.5~ppa~precise1_*.deb

Fix the dependencies again:

$ sudo apt-get -f install

And this is it, enjoy. Follow my steps exactly for a succesful installation.
