I created this thread ages ago and took you through a method of opening up sop:// links from firefox. I use a different method now, so I thought I'd share it with anyone who gives a stem.

So wtf is sopcast? It's a media streaming tool that is used commonly for live sports. If you're like me and have abandoned your local cable company, here's an easy way to keep up with your favorite team, wherever you are in the world.

First, you need to install a sopcast client. Ubuntu have a sopcast client and gui in their package manager, and sopcast and guis for sopcast used to exist in portage, but they don't anymore. No idea why, maybe lack of interest?

Visit http://download.sopcast.com/download/ and download the latest client. Extract the archive, navigate to where you extracted the files and
Code:
sudo cp sp-sc-auth /usr/bin/
cd /usr/bin
sudo ln -s sp-sc-auth sp-sc
sudo ln -s sp-sc-auth sopcast
The next thing you'll need is to know the url's of the channels you will want to watch. I get most of mine from myp2p. Next, we'll create another nifty little bash script:
Code:
sudo nano -w sop
Here's something to start with:
Code:
#! /bin/bash
#
####################################
#
# sop: gr0x0rd's sopcast launcher
#
####################################

echo -n "Which port? (08-?)"
read -e PORT

echo 'Which channel?'
PS3='Choice: '
select channel in \
    'NDSports1' \
    'NDSports2' \
    'DAZ Sports1' \
    'AVJ Sports' \
    'idfk'
do
    case $REPLY in
        1 ) SOP=sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/75687 ;;
        2 ) SOP=sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/81914 ;;
        3 ) SOP=sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/65179 ;;
        3 ) SOP=sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/65179 ;;
        4 ) SOP=sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/79543 ;;
        5 ) SOP=sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/36451 ;;
        * ) echo 'wtf?' ;;
    esac
    if [[ -n $channel ]]; then
        exec sp-sc $SOP 39$PORT 89$PORT > /dev/null &
        sleep 5;
        export DISPLAY=:0.1 && exec vlc -f --aspect-ratio 16:9 http://$HOSTNAME:89$PORT &>/dev/null &
        echo "...And a good day to you, sir!"
        break
    fi
done
This bash script will open the selected channel on the specified port in vlc fullscreen on the secondary display. You can changed the display it opens on and/or player used by editing the "export DISPLAY=:0.1 && exec vlc -f --aspect-ratio 16:9 http://$HOSTNAME:89$PORT &>/dev/null &" line. And of course, you can always add more channels by adding the right into to the select and case statements.

When you're done, don't forget to make your script executable and available for users!
Code:
sudo chmod 755 sop
sudo chown root:users sop
Happy sopcasting!

Thought, I paste this here, as it fits best:

Setup: unpack http://download.sopcast.com/download/sp-auth.tgz in /usr/local/bin & emerge libstdc++
Then:
