Use mpv.

Facing the same problem as @blum, suspecting a VLC problem.

Hello, Since the last update I have a problem with acestream-launcher or acestreamengine,

$ acestream-launcher acestream://.................. --player /usr/bin/vlc Streaming started, launching player...

Exiting... LIVE - status: playing down: 1396.0 kb/s up: 0.0 kb/s peers: 21

It exits right after the player is shown, with no error or anything. Is there any way to know what could be wrong?

@joaojotta it would be better if you created an alias in .bashrc like alias acestream-launcher="acestream-launcher -p vlc" or and edited .desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications.

@Brofjst Yes, it is indeed created by acestream-engine here

@nico_ok do not remove it or acestream won't work (at least not on kodi, i do not know for other usages). Btw the account it is not made by acestream-launcher but i think it's made by acestream-engine.

Just managed to change the default media player by changing the line in

default='mpv' to default='vlc'

This is how it looks now:

parser.add_argument( '-p', '--player', help='the media player command to use (default: mpv)', default='vlc' )

Just installed and all working great.I have noticed a new user account has now being created (acestream): is this expected behaviour? or can/should remove? Thanks a lot!

Requires makedepends=("desktop-file-utils") for update-desktop-database

Hum... quickquestion: How do I change the default media player from mpv something else? Let’s say it’s vlc. Thanks
