How to install Acestream on Fedora 24?

Acestream is a modified VLC that allows playing live videostreams via the torrent protocol.

Is there an easy way to install it on Fedora 24?

Copr returns no results.

The Acestream wiki refers installation on CentOS, but it's very confusing (it mentions something regarding installing the engine and not the player which I can't fully understand). Thanks in advance!

no not easy at all , download acestream_3.0.3_centos_7_amd64 and unpack I could running on F23 , using openssl unhobble [1]


I think it works , I don't test it on F24 yet .

UPDATE: ah so you don't need update matter of fact you should not use ./usr/local/ssl/lib, you just need use openssl unhobble


acestream_3.0.3_centos_7_amd64/ --client-console

Do you know how to use openssl unhobble without installing any rpms? I am interested in only building from source and then appending the build directory to PATH inside the script so this openssl is only in the lookup path for acestream.

now I call it openssl-freeworld , get the openssl-freeworld-libs.x8664.rpm. run ark (or other decompresser tool) extract /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/ , and put it your LDLIBRARY_PATH...

Adding a shared library to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH seems much easier, thank you. You should add it to the answer too. In, I changed LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/ssl/lib" to point to the directory that contains the shared libraries that I extracted from openssl-libs-1.0.2j-2.fc25.x86_64.rpm from UnitedRPMs/openssl-freeworld but I get assert m2.ec_key_type_check(ec), "'ec' type error" ValueError: Received a NULL pointer..

LDLIBRARYPATH= should have directory where you put /* freeworld , the error that you show here is about not using the openssl-freeworld

$ ls $HOME/opt/openssl/usr/lib64/ openssl/**

$ cat!/bin/shDIR="$( cd "$( dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}")" && pwd)"# export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/ssl/lib"export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$HOME/opt/openssl/usr/lib64"$DIR/acestreamengine --lib-path "$DIR" "$@"

Hi Dany

I am not sure if you are still looking for an easy solution to use ACEStream under fedora!? Well in my case, I am using fedora 25 x86_64 and to run ACEStream I am using wine and it works perfectly!

I think this is the easiest way to run ACEStream under fedora.
