Update: Sopcast is now officially available for Mac OS X. See http://www.sopcast.cn/download/mac.html
Using SopCast on the mac was always very hard. You had to use it with Windows in a virtual machine. Which made it very inconvenient. But lately I discovered that with the WineBottler.app you can build a SopCast.app with just a few clicks.
First get the newest version of the SopCast client for Windows. Then get the WineBottler app. After you’ve downloaded the WineBottler app, copy the Wine.app and the WineBottler.app into your Applications folder.
Then start the WineBottler.app and select “Create Custom Prefixes”. Press “select File…” and select the downloaded and unzipped SopCast exe. Check the “Self Contained” checkbox, so you don’t need Wine anymore after creating the SopCast.app. Finally press “Install”.
Select where to put your generated .app and wait until the sop cast installer starts.
Press OK and click through the installer. Make sure to uncheck the “Run SopCast” checkbox in the end and finish. After that the WineBottler asks you for the file that should be run when starting the new app. By default “StreamServer.exe” is selected. Chang this to “SopCast.exe”.
Click OK and you’re done. Now you can start your SopCast client and watch TV Streams. The first time you start a stream, SopCast might show you an error that something crashed and it might not work with Wine. Just ignore it and double click the stream again. Then it works.
Because your SopCast client doesn’t show the stream itself. You have to use VLC to actually watch a stream. When SopCast is running. Open the following URL with your VLC: http://localhost:8902/tv.asf
