I love soccer game so much, but since am always busy on my computers, i prefer to watch them online...and sometimes, the TV wont show matches because of some other programs...so to avoid this i searched for ways to watch my favorite English premier league online and recently have 2 different ways of watching the matches live without going to the bar or using the TV...:)
To watch the live matches, you need 2 programs
1. Sopcast (You can download sopcast here http://sopcast.en.softonic.com/)
2. VLC (You can download VLC here http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html)
MAC users can download VLC here (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html)
Most people have the VLC...if you do, you can skip the downloading of VLC and continue with the next step..
3. Install Sopcast
You can read about Sopcast if you follow my link above....but basically, its a P2P streaming app so you don't need huge bandwidth to watch the matches..
4.open Sopcast on your desktop or anywhere you place the program when installing
Sopcast allows you to login as anonymous...You can also create your account if you like to login using a user name and password...I always login as anonymous though :D
Sopcast logs in easily when you login as anonymous
5.Go to Options (at the bottom --> Click Option)
6.Under the general tab ----->Choose external player---->choose the "Use my own media player."
7.Click on select and search for the VLC icon in your PC
Tip: C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe (This is the standard link if you have not changed your installation path when installing VLC)
Accept this, and restart Sopcast. Start a channel, wait until it has buffered > 30%, and then select the below button;
8.Open VLC --> media---->Open Network stream --> http:// 127.0.0.1:8902 and press ok. But Sopcast and a channel should be running first (as usual)!
just close the previous channel you should see a symbol on the channel on SOPCAST <<..Use it to close the channel..don't exit SOPCAST, all the channels on Sopcast seems to be showing the EPL matches on English premiership days...so its quite good for watching the EPL...since its P2P you don't need huge bandwidth....with the network stream address above...you will watch the match on Wiziwig.tv...my favorite channel..........................
I will share with you a free software that allows me to watch TV in all countries, listen to radio and also watch live sport..
I love Sopcast with VLC because the of the low bandwidth it uses in playing the matches....I support Arsenal though...
So watch the next match with your computer...
Oh...you are about to say thank you....Its Ok friend...enjoy the EPL......
