How to: Run Acestream on Mac OS X

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on TumblrShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestShare on Reddit

OK. So I’ve searched and searched everywhere and until now it seemed the only known method to run AceStream on Mac OS X was to install Virtual Box and setup a virtual Windows XP, which is a rather complicating method. I’ve managed to find a few ways to port the latest AceStream to work on Mac OS X.

I have put together a couple of different method tutorials below for you all, so you can follow whichever one works for you and make your own app from scratch. It shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes and it’s not hard at all. Let me know how it goes.

Method 1 (Newest – 2016) – As of currently this is the latest method used to watch AceStream on OS X.

November 2016 – This is the latest method to get AceStream running on Mac OSX using Plexus for Kodi. This tutorial should also fix any “Torrent not available or invalid” errors you may have been getting before in previous tutorials. – It will also fix any “Installation Failed” errors when trying to install Plexus.

Watch this tutorial if you’re using the latest Kodi v17 “Krypton”.

Watch this tutorial if you’re using Kodi v16.1 “Jarvis” (Or older).

If Acestream cant connect to the stream or is stuck on loading the video then it might be because your internet provider is throttling torrent data or  you might be living in a geo-restricted area. You might need to use Ivacy VPN to make it work. Click here.

Things you will need:

Kodi v17 “Krypton” – Download
Kodi v16.1 “Jarvis” – Download

You will be required to give my Facebook page a “like” before the download links appear for AceStrean.zip, P2P Sport and Plexus.

Manually playing an Acestream Channel ID:

Sometimes P2P Sports doesn’t work correctly due to poor servers. So if you want to enter in your own channel ID manually to play, then you can do so by installing an add-on called P2P Streams. — https://youtu.be/bIPp6r0UTbsThis tutorial is specifically dedicated to people who have completed the Jarvis tutorial as I didn’t cover p2p-streams. If you’re doing the latest Kypton tutorial I already explained this in the main video.

UPDATE: As of Sunday 29 November 2015, P2P Sport is no longer supported by SuperRepo so it will NOT appear on the add-on list within their repository anymore. However you can still download it by clicking here and following the brief instructions below OR if you don’t like reading you can scroll down to find an updated video tutorial on how you can install P2P Sport.

2. Open Kodi
3. Scroll to the right and select SYSTEM and then Settings
4. Click “Add-ons”
5. Install from zip file
6. Select “Desktop” within the list

Acestream Video

UPDATE: This method has been patched and will only work if you download the AceStream.zip file (located above in method 1). Once you have downloaded the zip; extract it and place the .app file inside your mac applications folder. If you do not do this then you will most likely get “Torrent not available or invalid.”

Since P2P Sport is no longer available on SuperRepo and the process of installing it has changed a little bit from how I showed you in Method 2, I decided to revisit and give you all and update on how its done.
