Have this problem when starting (KDE 4.6.3)
[tridc@archy ~]$ sopcast-player
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/", line 36, in <module>
from VLCWidget import VLCWidget
File "/usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/", line 39, in <module>
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'Instance'

How to fix it? Thanks.

@ kfgz
I had the same error on my quad-core.
I thought it was a bug in some version of vlc.
I didn't know that 'trick' for multi-core processors!

You need to add

Strange...I've removed the package, installed it again and now it works :)

I have now built and tested on my laptop(32 bits) and my desktop(64 bits) and it works out of the box(standard vlc 1.1.5-2).
I have also installed vlc-plugins and still working perfect.
If you look in the package(sopcast-player) there is no
I have only and vlc.pyc
Do you use standard vlc or a development version?(vlc-dev, vlc-git)

@archtux, is it now :)
Is this thing working for you with the last vlc, without any hacks?
ImportError: /usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/ undefined symbol: libvlc_get_vlc_id

I have vlc and vlc-plugins isntalled, but still:
[vladimiroff@latitude ~]$ sopcast-player
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/sopcast-player/lib/", line 38, in <module>
import vlc
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[vladimiroff@latitude ~]$

In which package is this vlc lib for python?
