TV-Lite is a IPTV player, with Sopcast and Acestream handling capabilities. It uses the well known VLC for displaying media. This program currently runs on Linux and Windows operating systems,

TV-Lite wants to be a replacement for the older TV-Maxe. It does not have all the features that TV-Maxe offers. It uses the same principle of "subscriptions" and  uses the same playlist format TV-Maxe uses.  Apart from that, it can handle the ubiquitous M3U format used for many IPTV playlists. It aims to streamline a bit the behavior of TV-Maxe in respect to subscriptions. The subscriptions can be downloaded and saved as local playlists, that can be edited and new channels can be added, or the existent channels can be edited.

The subscriptions can only be updated, of course,  but copies of them can be always saved locally, and modified as stated above.

You have to install Acestream and, optionally Sopcast, for this program to be able to handle the respective stream types. Acestream offers a snap pakage, which is easy to find for Ubuntu and other Linux distros with Snap support. Sopcast is currently harder to install, as it seems that is no longer maintained for Linux. It is offered as a 32 bit binary only, and requires libstdc++5 to run.

TV-Lite new releases on Linux: 0.7.2 - 0.7.4

August 1, 2022 at 10:01 PM

Something happened in a short time after releasing 0.7.1. The wxWidgets framework got the first major update in 9 years! As exciting as it was, this broke the build on on the Arch based distributions so TV-Lite could not get passed the wxWidgets update. Also the current binary obviously could not be launched any more.

TV-Lite new release 0.7.1

July 13, 2022 at 3:54 PM

A little more than a month has passed since 0.7.0. Here is the new release 0.7.1

There are two changes that worth telling about. The first one is a redesign of the mini view. The second one is the ability to play the last played stream at startup. 

This release, hopefully, should be one of the last using wxWidgets 3.0.5. The wxWidgets developers have just issued 3.2.0. the first in a new "stable" series.
