Watch Sopcast on Tversity

Happy Monday all. In this post, I will let you know how you can combine Sopcast and Tversity together through your Xbox. Meaning that you can watch your Free Sports online and stream it to your Xbox.

Its pretty simple really. Firstly, you will need to download VLC from here

Create a desktop shortcut for VLC, then right click and then click on Properties. Change the target field to this (include the speech marks):

"C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" -vvv --sout "#std{access=mmsh,mux=asfh,dst=:1234}"

Now open up Sopcast as usual (if your new, refer to my previous article, here) and go to the channel that you want to watch.

Open up Tversity (directions on installing Tversity found here) and add a new Video URL and enter: mms://

Open up VLC using your desktop Icon

Now, switch on your Xbox, go to the media tab, Videos, and then select your Tversity Server. Click Internet Videos and find the new URL you have added, wait for it to Buffer and there you go. You can now watch your Sopcast Broadcast on your TV and someone else can use the PC.

To get the best out of the internet and Sopcast you should also download Firefox for faster and safer browsing.

I've only tried this on the Xbox, but I see no reason why It wouldn’t work on any other device that supports Tversity. i.e. PS3, PSP, Ipod etc etc.

Any probs, just leave a comment.

Well, I did what you said.

Now, when I stream it on the xbox it said it isn't supported.

Do I need to download a new codec?

you shouldnt do. If you havent got all the codecs that Tveristy provide when you intially download it, it wouldnt harm downloading the full pack.

Try refreshing your libary and ensure that the correct path is entered in VLC and that it is running.

If that fails, check out the Tveristy forum about the subject:
