Acestream on odroid C2?

Unread post by plikmuny » Fri Feb 23, 2018 1:35 am

Is there a working smooth version of acestream for c2?
I tried every method mentioned here. But I couldn't get it somehow working. Now I doubt if odroid has done something to prevent torrent running smoothly on c2?
Because my k1 plus runs acestream links fine without any problems....
I tried to copy the same files in c2, but it simply doesn't work.
Can anyone here guide me how to get this acestream links working? I want to test the legal live TV acestream links... So there is no question of illegality here..

Thanks in advance.

No one use a working Acestream? Or is it just that no one wants to help me regarding this problem?

Never heard of Acestream, but I can assure you that torrenting with Transmission works fine on the C2.

Acestream works fine with odroid c2, both for ubuntu or libreelec. Use this instructions https://twistedlinux.wordpress.com/2016 ... erry-pi-2/ and the latest package for odroid (it as arm64 libs) https://www.dropbox.com/s/2mu5v878gkrcd ... ar.gz?dl=0

You can't use the pakage from the first link, it is just for raspberry pi and is old.
You have to use the acestream from the second link.
I'm not using libreelec but ubuntu, so is dificult to me to make you a step by step guide of acestream for libeelec (I tested in libreelec on odroid long ago).
On ubuntu you only need to download it on you home directory and untar it. You will have a acestream directory.
Then sudo /home/yourhomedir/acestream/autostart.sh
You can make a script so you can stop acestream
nano /home/yourhomedir/acestream/stop_acestream.sh

paste

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin
ACEADDON="`dirname \"$0\"`"
ACECHROOT="androidfs"
 
if ! [ $(id -u) = 0 ]; then
        PERMISSION=sudo
fi

#terminar acestream.sh
$PERMISSION pkill -9 -f "/system/data/data/org.acestream.engine/files/python/bin/python" &>/dev/null
#terminar chroot
$PERMISSION pkill -9 -f "/system/bin/acestream.sh" &>/dev/null
#desmontar
$PERMISSION umount $ACEADDON/$ACECHROOT/proc
$PERMISSION umount $ACEADDON/$ACECHROOT/sys
$PERMISSION umount $ACEADDON/$ACECHROOT/dev
you have to make it executable

chmod +x /home/yourhomedir/acestream/stop_acestream.sh

There some issues in odroid C2 with cache of acestream in ram (you only see black screen)
So you must change cache to disk and every thing will work fine.
Sorry there a lot of parameters in acetream that can be changed for a smoother work. You have to google there are a lot of information on web.
On libreelec one way to make it work is change acore.py on Plexus so you can start autostart.sh, and for stoping acestream is the same edit acecore.py to use stop_acestream.sh.
Sorry I can't help you more but I'm very busy with my work for now.

That's as simply as it gets, copy that script text into a file.

*edit"

Here I made the file, just follow the rest of the direction

yes it works with libreelec on odroid c2 and in raspberry pi. You have two ways to install it in libreelec. One way is to use as a process that autostarts at boot. Maybe someone can help you with that. Other away is to make it start when plexus starts and stop when you are not using it (you need install plexus addon to use acestream with libreelec). After that that you have to copy the acestream directory on the acestream zip file to ~/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/program.plexus. After that is just using it.

It's struck at Pre-buffering forever with zero seeds and download speed of 0kb/s
What to do now?

That means that your installation is working. I don't know about your acestream source... If is legal, can you post your Content ID:?

I managed to get acestream working on libreelec 8.2.5 and plexus app onto a C2 board.
I had to patch some of the files from the Dropbox link
https://www.dropbox.com/s/2mu5v878gkrcd ... ar.gz?dl=0
I also made auto startup and shutdown scripts, as documented in the raspberry link.
All you have to do is to extract the Dropbox link into plexus program folder and later extract the attached archive from the root folder (/). It will ask you if you want to overwrite some files, answer yes (they are the patched ones).
Pay attention that it will overwrite the startup/shutdown custom scripts, if you have any. In this case, you'd better extract the archive in another folder and manually patch the scripts.
At the end reboot and you're done
Enjoy

I have followed instruction and I was able to get ACEstream running successfully on my C2. Thanks to all who made it possible... but one thing is bothering me: once I have launched ACEstream and was watching some broadcast I noticed in androidfs's subfolder there are created millions of files and subfolders in so deep nesting structure. I have mapped that folder to my Windows machine as K:\ drive and I'm running dir command to list them and it's lasting for hours already:

Directory of K:\sys\bus\cpu\devices\cpu0\subsystem\devices\cpu0\subsystem\devices\cpu0\subsystem\devices\cpu3\subsystem\devices\cpu1\subsystem\devices\cpu
0\subsystem\devices\cpu3\subsystem\devices\cpu1\subsystem\devices\cpu3\subsystem\devices\cpu0\subsystem\devices\cpu0

For that reason Kodi Backup addon have had stuck last night.
Whats going on here?

I use Acestream on Odroid C2 with LibreELEC 8.95. All working well, but does anyone have a suggestion how I can quickly send an acestream link (hash) to the C2?

I find a acestream magnet / hash online on my laptop, but then I have no easy way to send it to the C2 (connected to TV via HDMI, only control is via remote / CEC, very cumbersome to type in the whole link using up down left right arrow buttons with the on screen keyboard)

1. Use USB Keyboard on C2
2. Create txt file on your laptop, paste the link there and copy that txt file to /storage/downloads/ on C2. Then find the way how to read that txt file and copy-paste the link.
:D

Can you look into my post above and check if you have the same "weird" folder structure with acestream?

Add a directory shared with your laptop and the c2 .
Create a file with strm extension in that directory, paste the acestream ID in that file, on kodi in the film section play the file.

Thanks! That .strm file seems to be what I'm looking for.

rabaraf, I see the same structure, but are you sure this is cause by Acestream?

It seems to be some cyclical link.

LibreELEC:/sys/bus/cpu/devices # ls -l
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jun 22 2018 cpu0 -> ../../../devices/system/cpu/cpu0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jun 22 2018 cpu1 -> ../../../devices/system/cpu/cpu1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jun 22 2018 cpu2 -> ../../../devices/system/cpu/cpu2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jun 22 2018 cpu3 -> ../../../devices/system/cpu/cpu3

Tried this on 8.2.5, running Plexus 0.1.8 and the latest version of AceStream (3.1.30, from here: https://github.com/sshmanko/acestream-armv7/releases) and not getting any joy - popup saying "AceStream not installed" when I try and load a stream or torrent.

Anyone know why this might be?

I've tried this. I have the .strm file on the C2, and can see it in Kodi.

I don't know if the format should be

acestream://857c7ab59305fdccd621b6525786fe925813568d

or just the hash without the acestream:// (I've tried both)

I've read the Kodi guide about .strm files, but had no further tips: https://kodi.wiki/view/Internet_video_a ... ile_method:

I click on the file under Videos but nothing happens. The acestream works OK if I enter the hash manually in Plexus.

The log I get is:
14:10:39.349 T:4086843792 NOTICE: VideoPlayer::OpenFile: /var/media/sda1-usb-WD_Elements_25A2/tennis.strm

I get unsupported protocol (acestream), is there some way I should link this protocol to Plexus?

Sorry, I couldn't remember that strm doesn't work with acestream.
There is another away, install the playlist loader addon, create a file with extension m3u, edit the file and past at the start
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="test" group-title="test",test
acestream://857c7ab59305fdccd621b6525786fe925813568d
save and in kodi add that list with playlist loader and you will be fine (tested by me)
with this you cand add more than a link.

Thanks for your help. I tried this and was getting the same Unsupported protocol (acestream) error, but I was able to call Plexus correctly using this in a .strm file:

plugin://program.plexus/?mode=1&url=acestream://857c7ab59305fdccd621b6525786fe925813568d&name=Test
