it works great !!! thanks for letting us know about it.

You have to choose a channel from the list, i couldn't find the functionality to type in a custom address.

you also might have to let it buffer for a couple of minutes, but that depends on the channel. i'm using a sgs4g.

there does seem to be some functionality missing from this version, however as it is still in beta i'm sure they can be forgiven.

As previously states there does not seem to be any option to insert an address or channel id manually, also clicking on a sop link in an android browser produces a message that there is no software installed to handle the function...

I don't know enough about android to know if you can tell a browser (dolphin) for example how to handle the request? Or to send the request to the sopcast app.

works fine for me, took me a while to find the channel with the match on tonight .

If they can provide an channel input window, it'll be perfect.

I was watching the match on my PC, which was oddly 30 seconds behind the Android! As a result I ended up watching it on the phone.

Good resolution, not jerky, Liverpool won!

The images don't do full justice to the quality (think taking stills off video), but they will give a good idea.

after looking a bit deeper in to the app, there is a url entry bar, its under menu - local media - menu -url

This also allows you just to enter the Sopcast channel number also.
