Sopcast Player, the P2P streaming application that allows you to watch various TV channels online, is now available for Android, allowing you to watch TV on your Android smartphone or tablet.
SopCast for Android is currently in beta and doesn’t support all the features the desktop application does; for instance, you can’t edit the server list, manually add a TV channel or open sopcast URLs. But the default TV channel list is pretty ok for most people.
In my test, the application worked great on my old HTC Desire HD running Android 2.3.5. Unfortunately I couldn’t test it on newer Android devices but according to it’s description, it should work on any device running Android 2.2+.
Main SopCast for Android features according to its official webpage:
- Powered by latest SopCast P2P engine, supports all SopCast P2P channel types.
- Play local videos (supports most audio and video file types)
- Low CPU usage
- Memory buffering
