What does the plugin do?

Ace Stream is a plugin for VLC Media Player that allows direct streaming from servers and torrent streaming.

Copied from Ace Stream Information Center:

"Ace Stream is an innovative multimedia platform of a new generation, which includes different products and solutions for ordinary Internet users as well as for professional members of the multimedia market.

Note: Ace Stream uses in its core, P2P (peer-to-peer) technology, BitTorrent protocol, which is acknowledged as the most effective protocol to transfer/deliver «heavy content». Ace Stream is more than just BitTorrent client for file exchange via P2P-networks!

The main directions of platform specialization: AVoD (Audio and Video on Demand), Live Stream (live broadcast), localization of foreign BitTorrent traffic, decentralized social networks, and IOTT (Interactive-Over-The-Top). Ace Stream platform provides excellent audio-visual quality for Internet online broadcasts/shows and the most effective system of storing and delivering audio and video content.

Note: Ace Stream users watch online video with audio-visual quality level ten times greater than quality of video on YouTube (provided in 1080p format) and many times greater than broadcasts/shows of all other existing services of VoD and Live Stream provided by OTT (Over The Top) service operators, which do not use P2P technology.

No existing Live Stream service or standard CDN operator using unicast can provide live broadcast with the same high level quality, for the same number of viewers, that can be provided by the average Ace Stream user from his personal computer using home Internet-channel!"

Linux Installation

Installing AceStream on Ubuntu 13.10

There is currently isn't any AceStream package for 13.10 (Saucy) in the repo, so let's use 13.04.

Adding AceStream repo to sources.list

Open a terminal and type sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.

At the bottom of the file, add




deb raring main

then save and close the file.

Now we need to add the repository key to our keyring, so enter sudo wget -O - | sudo apt-key add - into your terminal and hit enter.

Install AceStream

Next, we need to update the local apt repository with the repository we have added, so type sudo apt-get update and hit enter.

To install acestream, type sudo apt-get install acestream-full and hit enter.

Unmet dependencies

If you get an error like this:


The following packages have unmet dependencies:

acestream-player-data : Depends: libdvbpsi7 (>= 0.2.0) but it is not installable

E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

then we are missing a package required by AceStream and we will need to install the missing package before we can go ahead with the AceStream installation. We can get the libdvbpsi7 package from this site. Just navigate to that page and click the deb package for your architecture (32 or 64bit) under "Download 'libdvbpsi7'". Once the file downloads, you can install it with the Ubuntu software centre.

With that package installed, you should be able to run sudo apt-get install acestream-full again in your terminal to install AceStream.
