Installer. Get it from:

TV-Lite 0.7.6 Windows

Previous stable version

TV-Lite 0.7.1 Windows

Installing Acestream is recommended Get it from http://info.acestream.org/#/install


TV-Lite package for Ubuntu 24.04
TV-Lite_0.7.6 deb package Ubuntu 24.04

TV-Lite package for Ubuntu 23.04 (works with 23.10, too)
TV-Lite_0.7.6 deb package Ubuntu 23.04

Ubuntu users can benefit from a PPA supporting Ubuntu versions, from 18.04 to 22.10 (!). Add ppa:tv-lite/ppa-git to your system's Software Sources by typing the following commands in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tv-lite/ppa-git
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install tv-lite

Installing Acestream is recommended 

sudo snap install acestreamplayer 


A package for Arch, Manjaro and other Arch-derived  distros is available now in AUR

Installing Acestream is recommended 

sudo snap install acestreamplayer 

Also take care to install (actually downgrade) to the following custom built VLC package. Run these commands. After that you can update VLC again, from the repos.
The official VLC package is useless. It has two dependencies missing (aribb) and a missing plugin. It can't open most of the MP4 and HLS streams.

curl -L -o vlc-3.0.12-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst https://www.tv-lite.com/uploads/tv-lite/arch/vlc-3.0.12-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
sudo pacman -U vlc-3.0.12-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Then you may upgrade VLC with the one from the repositories, since the dependencies and the plugin will stay installed.

About this software
