It is possible to have AceStream Player?Very easily [SOLVED]

#1 Post by penguin » Fri Jun 15, 2018 5:12 pm

Any chance to have AceStream Player on MX Repos? MX Linux 64 bit.
On their site is written : ACE STREAM SYSTEM , is an innovative media platform of a new generation, which will take you to a new high-quality level of multimedia space on the Internet.

Searching on
I found that AceStreamPlayer exist as AUR.

Going deeper I found 2 follow deb files needed for installation :
and decide to install, but trying to install the second one(first), it asked to install other packages.I continued with try and error but I stopped after installing 5 or 6 of them.

I tried also follow method:
explained on a Russian site but when tried to install one of the packages asked me to install another one and another one , so I quit.

also this:
but something have gone wrong on the second step.

So .... ?

Stevo. If you can.Just have a look if it is possible to have AceStream Player on MX Linux. I do not want to use Windoze just to run Acestream for football matches.I arrived to install Sopcast ( on mX Linux needs to downgrade VLC and install the dependence libvcl.dev (if I remember well name), but SopCast do not played nothing.

I also tried as described on the follow link:
I stopped on the second step during installing of
acestream-player-compat_3.0.2-1.1_amd64.deb
by a similar kind of problem as described on article: '' trying to overwrite ....'', but on my case another library.

For all interested on AceStream issue:

It is something very interested here

Instructions:

1.Prerequisites: If you are unsure that you have all the dependencies, run:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python python-psutil python-pexpect python-notify2 acestream-engine vlc

+++++++++++++
I installed acestream-engine from link

Code: Select all

https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0B7AdLMiZn4FzQ1hLZWxaQ19YY2c

+++++++++++++

2.Clone the repository:

Code: Select all

https://github.com/jonian/acestream-launcher.git
3.Run install.sh script as root:

sudo bash ./install.sh
Now, once you have the URL of the streaming, run:

acestream-launcher URL
For example:

acestream-launcher acestream://edca97797b5749855c9c0d512312312312323
Enjoy.
I used SparkyLinux as test, but also on MX Linux this method not function. Everything installed as described...but on the end I did not arrived to play stream. I get
Stream unavailable!

Exiting...
Meanwhile I installed acerstream-launcher and acerstream-engine from AUR (yaourt) on my ARCH Linux. Function like a charm on mpv player !!!
Now I am trying to automate process by making a small launcher by YAD. Just copy of acestream link and Voila.

Can anyone can try what was described above and post here if concluded or not.
Thanks on advance.

I will make another test to see If I can conclude.

my script per YAD. Copy and paste the follow lines on your editor and save file, for example as acestream.sh and execute on terminal as
bash acestream.sh
#!/bin/sh
INPUTTEXT=`yad --fixed --height=50 --width=700 --text-align=center --text="Play Stream Link" --entry --entry-label=' Paste AceStream Link and Click OK' --entry`
acestream-launcher $INPUTTEXT
The upper script is valid only for Arch Linux, when acestream-engine starts as service(installed,activated and started in the moment when you install AUR).The follow post, explains HOW TO use the latest acestream-engine on MX Linux 64 bit.

Solved at last. Very Simple. MX Linux 64 bit. (I will check if this method function on MX Linux 32 bit)

download acestream engine 64 bit version from :

Code: Select all

http://wiki.acestream.org/wiki/index.php/Download

find it for Debian 8

Code: Select all

 http://dl.acestream.org/linux/acestream_3.1.16_debian_8.7_x86_64.tar.gz
32 bit version can be downloaded here.

Code: Select all

http://dl.acestream.org/debian/7/acestream_3.0.2_debian_7.6_i686.tar.gz
or

Code: Select all

http://dl.acestream.org/ubuntu/14/acestream_3.0.3_ubuntu_14.04_i686.tar.gz
As said.I installed on MX Linux 64 bit.For MX Linux 32 bit, should be checked if the described below method is valid or not.

1-Create a folder called acestream (must be acestream)
2-Extract file somewhere.
3-All files inside folder acestream_3.1.16_debian_8.7_x86_64, must be copied to the directory that you created (acestream)> see attachment picture.
4-Copy the directory acestream under directory /opt under your root as : /opt/acestream/ > see attachment picture.
5-Install git package from Synaptic,if it is not installed.
6-Open Terminal execute

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/jonian/acestream-launcher.git
7-Find under your /home/User/ > folder acestream-launcher and open Right Click >Terminal Here, or Open Terminal and write
cd /home/User/acestream-launcher/
Replace User > by your User Name
8-On the Terminal execute
sudo bash ./install.sh
Done.Much more simple than I thought....

Now to watch a stream ...
1- Fire up acestream engine by command on Terminal
/opt/acestream/start-engine --client-console
or
/opt/acestream/start-engine --client-console --bind -all
I do not differences between them, but both function
2- Find your acestream link on Internet example suppose yours is
acestream://edca97797b5749855c9c0d512312312312323
3-Excute
acestream-launcher acestream://edca97797b5749855c9c0d512312312312323
*** the follow command in terminal will start both acestream engine and acestream-launcher in one line

Enjoy IT.

P.S.
You can use my script per YAD.
*********************************************************************************************************************
the follow command in terminal will start both acestream engine and acestream-launcher in one line
acestream-launcher $INPUTTEXT --engine "/opt/acestream/start-engine --client-console --bind-all"
**********************************************************************************************************************
Copy and paste the follow lines on your editor and save file, for example as acestream.sh and execute on terminal as
bash acestream.sh
#!/bin/sh
INPUTTEXT=`yad --fixed --height=50 --width=700 --text-align=center --text="Play Stream Link" --entry --entry-label=' Paste AceStream Link and Click OK' --entry`
acestream-launcher $INPUTTEXT --engine "/opt/acestream/start-engine --client-console --bind-all"
From my previous post.
You can copy acestream.sh under directory /opt/acestream/ and create a launcher on your desktop. I use this method on ARCH and when launcher starts, the Terminal Windows that starts acrestream, remain hidden. The cosmetic thing that I want to make on MX is to hide or minimize Terminal Windows when I start
/opt/acestream/start-engine --client-console
Work like a charm !

Enjoy !

P.S.

For MX Linux 32 bit , I used the same method described for version 64 bit, but same additional packages need to be installed before.
Script file start_engine is missing on version 32 bit.Because I did not know how to start acestream engine,I copied it from 64 bit. Follow is Start_Engine,sh file
+++++++++++++++++++++++
#!/bin/sh
ROOT=$(readlink -f $(dirname $0))
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${ROOT}/lib ${ROOT}/acestreamengine --lib-path $ROOT "$@"
++++++++++++++++++++++++
Packages that need to be installed as described here :

Code: Select all

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/acestream-engine-i686/
python-m2crypto
python-apsw
python3-apsw
python3-lxml
python3-setuptools
python-typing
++++++++++++++++++++++++
but the latest acestream-launcher script is not valid for acestream-engine < 3.1.

Author of acestream-launcher recommended :
jonian commented 23 hours ago :
Hi, as it states in the readme:
Since v1.0.0 acestream-launcher uses Acestream Engine HTTP API that is available on acestream-engine v3.1 or later.
So to make it work with acestream-engine 3.0.2 you should use the latest version before v1.0.0 from here https://github.com/jonian/acestream-lau ... v0.5.0.zip.
I used acestream-launcher Version 0.5.Additional python-psutil needs to be installed.
Extract acestream-launcher version 0.5 and copy files on the acestream directory that you get from git clone.Use the same method to install by : sudo ./install.You will see an error for illegal character on Line 8, but do not care.
Start streaming or by command line for example:
acestream-launcher acestream://2b3119a7752920ad43a627d4cf60f69e2e6efb04 --engine "/opt/acestream/start-engine --client-console --bind -all"
or use my YAD launcher.

Player vlc or mpv or smplayer or mplayer , can be changed by editing acestream_launcher.py on /opt/acestream-launcher, or edit acestream_launcher.py before install. on this section:
)
parser.add_argument(
'-p', '--player',
help='the media player command to use (default: mpv)',
default='mpv'
)
I strongly recommend to run first command on Terminal, to verify that no library is missing.If a library is missing, install it.
Enjoy IT.
