SopCast for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Despite the Internet's ability to connect Web sites and other content across continents, finding video content from other countries can be difficult. SopCast for Mac allows users to view channels originating in many countries from one program on their computer.

Available as freeware, the program's channels are also viewable at no cost. The program is small, downloaded quickly, and easily installed. In terms of functionality, SopCast for Mac allows you to watch from a list of channels organized by country of origin. There is also a menu allowing you to directly paste links to other SopCast channels not listed in the main menu. While the program advertisement claims to allow you to produce and stream your own channels, there was no listed capability for this in the actual Mac version of the program. In examining the available channels, it is clear the majority of the content comes from foreign countries, mostly in Asia. The channels selected loaded well and streamed at an average, standard-definition quality. The channel menu was easy to navigate, but the individual stations lacked any description beyond the country of origin, making it difficult to find out what type of program was playing. The content from the main menu had limited variety with few channels available overall.

SopCast for Mac, despite its limited content, would be a useful app for those who are bilingual or come from a foreign country and have difficulty finding programs in their native languages.
