Ace Link is a macOS menu bar app that allows playing Ace Stream video streams in VLC player.
Paste an Ace Stream hash in the Ace Link menu. Ace Link will launch the Ace Stream server in Docker and open your stream in VLC.
Requires VLC, Docker and macOS High Sierra (10.13) or higher.
Ace Link is an unsigned app because Apple does not allow p2p related applications. If your version of macOS does not allow opening unsigned applications, follow these instructions to bypass this restriction.
Ace Stream server only
If you want to play a stream using a player other than VLC, run
docker run -p 6878:6878 blaiseio/acestream and open
http://127.0.0.1:6878/ace/getstream?id=<hash> in a player with HLS support.
- Show stream meta info in VLC
- Maintain a history of streams
- Validate that a stream is working before launching VLC
