NHL on SopCast.

1. Download and install the required applications:

a. Download the sopcast client from this link: http://www.sopcast.references.tv/2down/SopCast.zip
b. Unzip and open the SopCast Folder.
c. Double click and install Setup-SopCast-3.0.0-2008-3-10.exe
d. Download the VLC media player from this link: http://mirrors.optralan.com/videolan/vlc/0.8.6e/win32/vlc-0.8.6e-win32.exe
e. Double click and install vlc-0.8.6e-win32.exe
f. Download the Combined Community Codec Pack from this link: http://www.cccp-project.net/download.php?type=cccp
g. Double click and install Combined-Community-Codec-Pack-2008-01-24.exe

2. Watch the games:

a. Head over to the myp2p.eu NHL forum: http://www.myp2pforum.eu/nhl/
b. Open the corresponding "game day thread" (eg, Yesterday's thread is located at http://www.myp2pforum.eu/nhl/17267-hockey-today-march-19-streaming.html and the day before is located at http://www.myp2pforum.eu/nhl/17224-hockey-today-march-18-streaming.html
c1. If you are using windowsxp, just click the corresponding link next to the game inside the thread and SopCast should open and start to buffer (eg in the case of today's Carolina game, you would want to click on the part that says "PeltVision": 7:00 pm (23:00 GMT, 00:00 CET) Carolina @ Atlanta PeltVision on SOP, 250k VLC Req!)
c2. If you are using windows vista, manually open the SopCast player. With Vista, you have to right click the corresponding link in the gameday thread and select copy. Next, go to the SopCast address bar and paste the link.
d. Start the SopCast stream and let it buffer.
e. Open VLC.
f. In the "file" sections of the VLC menu, go to Open Network Stream, select "HTTP" option, and type in 127.0.0.1:8902 (If port 8902 doesn't work, try 8912).
g. The game video should now be playing in VLC.
h. You MUST leave SopCast running; closing SopCast closes the stream.
i. Make sure you mute the SopCast player audio (not VLC), so that the two audio sources don't bleed into each other.

Thanks, man. I was just trying to figure this out as I am at work tonight.

It's working great, though right now I'm getting the Canes...I assume that's just because the Oilers game hasn't begun yet.

Cam said...

Yea, it looks like the streamer was doing the Canes game then switching to the Oil at game time.

Really appreciate the post and the quick, easy steps!

Right now Craig Simpson is teaching kids to do squats on skates. Weird.

Thanks. Got a dry cough, so want to stay home and watch it online.

Psssssst - when you going to add my blog on your sidebar links ;)

Any way to do this on a mac?

Cam said...

Kirk:

Unfortunately sopcast is not available for the Mac platform.

However, if you are familiar with the "crossover" app you can always boot into windows and watch the games.

I've been looking for this forever - I'm marooned in Abbotsford and want to watch my Oilers.

I'm actually on a Mac but have Parallels installed so the XP instructions worked great.

This works perfectly! Thanks!
