AceStream multimedia player is capable of capturing video from several different sources, synchronizing it with external audio and also of supporting subtitles.

The user can even add logos or even watermarks and capture frames. It supports most of the audio and video formats which includes AVI, WAV, MKV and other without the need of installing codecs. To run it on MacOS, we need to install another software called SODA PLAYER, which is one of the best in the market right now.

The developer team finally released a version of the application that supported AceStreams few months ago. They used the latest AceStream engines, not the one that comes with the famous KODI addon. Early test indicated that the casting is better/more stable than the official AceStream app, even on windows. Great application where finally AceStream on Mac + HEChromeCast was supported.

It Works like a charm! The only other options for Mac users was super sketchy, which is not a favorite with users.

How to install AceStream on MAC

  1. Download and install Soda player as any other application on your MAC.
  2. Open the browser and go to the football streaming site and select the match you want to run on the AceStream media player
  3. A page will open with many alternatives to watch the match. You will have to select one of the AceStreams that is of interest to you.
  4. Right click on the AceStream button and copy the link address to the clipboard. OR you can even click on the utton and the link will be open in the tab. Then from the URL box of the browser, copy the link.
  5. Once the link has been copied, run the Soda Player application that you installed.
  6. The main screen shows an option “Open an AceStream link”. Click on it.
  7. A box will pop up. Paste the URL of the AceStream video in the box and click on “Open”
  8. Wait for the stream to buffer. When running it for the first time, it may ask for some addons to be downloaded. If so, download them which may take a few minutes. S, when you run it for the first time, it may take some time for the video to start.
  9. Once the downloads finish, the streaming will start.

Kodi acts as a front-end interface for Acestream, which does the actual inept streaming.

  1. Open Kodi.
  2. Right-click the menu item for AceStream in the menu bar at the top of your screen, click “Options”.
  3. Set the live buffer to 30 seconds. This means that our stream is 30 seconds behind the live broadcast. If our connection is poor, the buffer will run out and our stream will lag. If you still have problems with lagging, increase the buffer. If you have a very fast connection, you can try decreasing it so you are closer to the live broadcast.
  4. Disk cache- I set mine to 3 (meaning 3Gb). This is the maximum size that you want Acestream to store the live video on your hard drive.
  5. Go to Advanced settings. Set total maximum connections to 500.

Using AceStream securely is essential for it involves peer-to-peer (P2P) services. Using Cyberghost VPN to use Acestream securely will help and one can use worldwide servers to unblock geo-locked content from different countries.  

AceStream on Mac OS will be successfully installed after all these efforts. Hope this helps you install AceStream on Mac OS and get through one of the best software for free.
