Streaming SOPCAST and ACESTREAM links to Xbox360


Note: This guide have been written for windows 7 32-BIT. It may work for XP or Windows 8. I did not personally tested it.

I always stumble across the web for people asking how to get their favorite  acestream or sopcast links streaming directly to the  Xbox 360.

In the tutorial below, I will demonstrate the proper way of doing it and so far, I know these two software are mainly used to watch EPL matches or other live sports.


First, head over to Wiziwig.tv website. Here, you will find mostly Flash based streams, sopcast and acestream links. Select your preferred links with your desired program [ Sopcast or Acestream]. Note: Most links usually appears 1 hour before the match as shown below.



 Before proceeding MOST IMPORTANT:

1. Make sure port 8902 is open and being forwarded to your computer local IP address. Open the port in your router. The steps to open the port may vary due to several router models available. Go to PortForward.com and look for your router model and proceed accordingly. Set your local IP to be static. If you dont know how to do so, check this link.






An example of my router in DMZ mode. In this mode, the Xbox may open any port on my computer though its not safe, I recommend only to port forward 8902.








2. Go to Control Panel - Network & Sharing Center and apply the settings shown.


 3. Optional: You may set the your Xbox 360 IP as static or DHCP enabled.

 4. Download and Install VLC Media Player.




5 . Download CCCP Insurgent. This checks if you have any previous codecs installed. Head over to Control and remove the codec package CCCP insurgent detected on your windows.
CCCP Insurgent Download Link

6. Most Important: After uninstalling all codecs, download and install K-Lite Codec Pack 10. 40 FULL from FileHippo website. During installation just click next until it finishes and do not make any changes.

7. Download and Install SERVIIO Media Server.

Proceed with the installation.


STREAMING SOPCAST LINKS to XBOX 360 GUIDE
First you will need to head over to the Sopcast website and download and install the program if you do not have it.

Download Link 

When installation is complete - Open Sopcast. Any related issues you are having with the program like "It fails to open etc.." Head over to this forum.









I am currently testing live servers from Sopcast. You may test football match links from wiziwig website mentioned above.

Press Play and wait until the channels buffers enough to get a smooth stream.

If you are on wiziwig website, select your desired Sopcast link. More bitrates, quality will be better. Choose according to your broadband speed.

Once the channel is playing in Sopcast, open VLC Media Player. Media - open Stream or CTR + S

Enter the Address highlighted in Blue and click on "Stream". Now the following screens appears.








    In the following screen, paste this address in the "Generated Stream String Output Section"
    without the quotes ":sout=#duplicate{dst=std{access=mmsh,dst=:1234}}".
Click on Stream
           Now to verify if the VLC is indeed streaming the link , go to  Tools in VLC - Media Information - Statistics. You should see something like this.

 The input read section should not be 0 . The one highlighted in red should be continuously varying.

Now Open Serviio Console


The Server should be running. Go to Library - Then select Online Resources - Then Click "ADD"




Now enter the details as shown in the screenshot below:


Select ADD. Now highlight the stream and click SAVE.





A Brief Recap before you head to your Xbox 360.[ You should repeat each step every time you want to watch a live link] -- STEPS only for SOPCAST, VLC, SERVIIO. The rest, you just do it only once.

I'm so close... I get "The connection to your computer was lost. Make sure your computer is turned on, connected to your network, and running media sharing software" Status code: 53-C00DF238

I've tried to start the stream a few times. It goes to a black screen that says "Opening" in the top left... then nothing, then the above error message.

In the serviiio console, I tried to Check URL and it failed. Maybe something wrong with that mms URL or a port that's not open?

Hi please check if you did all the steps correctly. You can also bypass sopcast and ace player.
If you have a movie/video clips check if you can load them directly in serviio and create the stream. File sharing should be turned on your PC and try to add serviio to your firewall exceptions if you have issues.

OK. Still not able to stream. But I did load a shared folder I to serviiio and am currently watching a movie successfully. I tried a different transcoding option in VLC thinking that a windows format might be easier on the Xbox, but no difference. I am using Windows XP

There you have it, by following our simple guides from above you will be able to install Acestream on Windows, Android, Kodi and even Mac. Once you have the Acestream player on your device, connect with a VPN to secure your connections from your ISP and copyright trolls, and watch live sports on Acestream like cricket, soccer and footabll on acestream from anywhere instantly.
