Editors' Review

+

Combining media broadcast channels and media distribution under one roof, SopCast is a lightweight way to check up on streaming video that comes from sources of a possibly dubious nature.

There are three main components to the program. Live Channels are streaming television channels mostly from China, Japan, and Korea. VoD Channels are videos-on-demand, and MyServer lets you broadcast media from their computers to other SopCast users. We couldn't get the VoD options to work, but the Live Channels pulled in cartoons from China, sports from Europe, and music videos from Brazil. You can add channels to a favorites list, adjust the screen size, and more. However, refresh rates were slow, and video playback often froze.

Users can log in anonymously, or create an account--which is required to distribute your own content. Although SopCast can be fun, stability issues and the limited broadcast channels might keep it from reaching a wider audience.

"If you have a Sopcast link, sit back and enjoy"

October 14, 2012  |  By Gnostradamus

 |  Version: SopCast 3.5

Pros

If you have a link, the program does the work for you. Fast and light--runs incredibly smoothly without taxing your system.

Cons

Can't really browse through the channels if you don't know what you're looking for.

Summary

If someone gives you the link, you're golden.

"Watch free TV on your Computer"

October 19, 2011  |  By mr.sms

 |  Version: SopCast 3.4

Pros

Very reliable, give it a minute and you can enjoy smooth high quality broadcasts.
never had it crash or freeze,
watch Sports, Movies, News and Music channels

Cons

After installing it didn't work, so I had to re-install.
doesn't take links automatically when clicking in a web browser so I have to copy and paste the link to the program, it may be an issue with my configuration.

Summary

it may require you to re-install, it may not take links automatically and depending on your connection and the popularity of the channel you may need to give it a minute to buffer, but when it finishes, you can enjoy high quality free TV.
