While many may argue, the invention that re-defined the way people used to spend their free time called TV is going out of fashion, slowly but surely. With the world of technology constantly introducing new innovations in every possible aspect, the modern TV does indeed bring a whole lot of cool and useful features on the table. Then again, what does a television set have that a powerful desktop computer or laptop does not? And with the increasing number of softwares and solutions that allow us to watch high-quality video streams, one can’t help but wonder if these new models of TV (such as 3D, ultra HD, etc.) are a necessity or luxury. I’ll leave this discussion for bigger tech-savvy people than me.
Mistake me not. I’m not saying that watching a movie on an Ultra HD TV screen is the same as watching a 480p movie on a laptop screen, with the display stretching the movie so it will fit the whole screen. Of course that ultra-modern technology TV brings the cinema at your home. But is owning one of them absolutely necessary to enjoy your show, movies and even video games? It’s not. In this article, I’m going to explain to you how you can enjoy HD movies and live streams on your laptop, smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, so you won’t have to spend a lot of money on TV just so your furniture will have something to be pointed at (F.R.I.E.N.D.S.-reference-alert).
AceStream – The Most Popular Streaming App
One of the most reliable applications to rely on is AceStream. The popular peer-to-peer streaming video application allows you to watch high quality video live streams that are shared by other people from anywhere around the world. The best thing about AceStream is that it is available for Windows, Mac, Linux/Ubuntu, Android and Apple iOS. Practically, it is available for anyone who may find interest in it. Although using this application seems just as easy as every other app, getting AceStream links to play requires careful operation. Therefore, we’ve made sure that you have a thorough guide on how to use AceStream.
How Does Ace Stream Player Work?
This multifunctional technological solution that got all tech enthusiasts excited is bound to change the way people share, publish and watch videos, concerts, shows and everything else in audio and visual file format. Aside from allowing you to watch all the TV channels you would otherwise watch on a television set, Ace Stream is a gret way to consistently find reliable HD sports streams and never miss a second of your team’s play. No matter your device or operating system, you can download, install and set up the popular Ace Player for use in a matter of minutes. Here’s how to use AceStream.
The first step is to visit the official site of AceStream.org and download the app for free. After you download it, open your “downloads” folder or wherever does your browser downloads data. The installation process is pretty easy, just as any generic installation. When the installation process is complete, you will notice that there are two new apps installed on your device: Ace Player and Ace Stream Media Center. What you will be using more is the Ace Player, so go ahead and open it.
In the tab menu at top left, locate the first item on the first menu from left to right “media” and select “Open Ace Stream Content ID”. This option is for watching streams and to make it work, you need to find reliable AceStream links. My personal choice is always Reddit. On this community you can always find a like-minded streamer who selflessly provides a high quality stream for your mutual favorite team’s game. For example, try googling “real madrid stream reddit”. Then, search for a game thread that has been upvoted most and look for Ace Stream links. When you find a link, copy it and paste it in the field where the app has asked your for stream content ID.
While sometimes the quest of finding reliable links can require a lot of time and patience, it is definitely worthwhile. The app can sometimes load your channel in mere seconds, while sometimes it may take a few minutes – it depends on your connection. Keep in mind that if you’re trying to watch a HD channel you need a fast Internet so it will run flawlessly.
As aforementioned, AceStream is available for Linux either, as well as for Android, iOS and Mac OS X. To install this app on Mac OS X, you will need to use some sort of virtualization software, such as Virtual Machine or BootCamp. Even if you’re not a real tech genius, you surely know how to Google stuff. Just hit the search engines and look for BootCamp and how to install it. Panic not, because it’s much easier than it may sound.
Thanks to the incredible efficiency of peer-to-peer distribution method and the reliability of AceStream, streamers today are able to provide us with streams at high bit-rates, which results in incredible quality streams, completely eliminating the need to ever turn on the TV again. Without apps like AceStream and good Samaritans (read streamers), we would’ve had to buy the latest TV models and pay overly expensive bills on cable companies in 21th century, an idea that to me sounds utterly funny.
