Sopcast (Olympics) on OMX?

Anyone had any luck watching the Olympics on
RPi3/Raspbian/OMX?
I found this site with Sopcast and Ace streams

seems to be the way but I can't get it to work.
I don't get it past the 'start_omxplayer' loop.
Ideas?

Live streams are difficult, even on Youtube :-( General command for Youtube: "omxplayer $(youtube-dl -g

" but I don't think that will ever work well with live videos; they seem to change the underlying stream url frequently (every x minutes, I guess). So then it stalls and you have to restart. Maybe even worse: it doesn't seem to pick up the right, or maximum, resolution but a very low one instead. Maaaaaybe it could be solved by a 'youtube-dl' update, if someone figures out how to improve it.
Sorry, wish I knew!

I'm wondering if the "Court order" excuse is a bit disingenuous given Sky/NOWtv are likely to have been the applicants. It seems to be available via other ISPs.

What about

?
If we were to understand what he means (the site is in Spanish) perhaps that would be a first step into getting it to work...

OK, a current Sopcast URL is:
sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/262498
AceStream ditto:

& completely pointless as anyone who is prepared top break the law by downloading illegal content already knows enough to use a proxy & bypass the restriction

Here is what seems to be a straightforward idea. However it is for Ubuntu and specifying the [arch=armhf] in /etc/apt/sources.list only makes it find nothing.
But if there was that software compiled for us, perhaps it'd work, only it might still be too slow without OMX.

Then use a browser or add-on which can translate Spanish, into English or even Swedish.
