Media players

Ace Link allows selecting your own media player. Ace link does not transcode streams, so pick a player that supports popular audio and video codecs. VLC, IINA and MPV are free and open source media players that are able to play nearly anything. QuickTime and web browsers will play most streams, but not all.


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 run the AceStream engine without running Ace Link, you can just run docker run --rm -p 6878:6878 blaiseio/acelink. You can mount a custom config file:

docker run --rm -p 6878:6878 -v "$(pwd)/acestream.conf:/opt/acestream/acestream.conf" blaiseio/acelink
