Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, 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. The latest version available is Sopcast 0.8.5.
In this article I will show you how to install Sopcast 0.8.5 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Sopcast 0.8.5 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the sopcast package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lyc256/sopcast-player-ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install sopcast-player
