Once it's downloaded, you'll want to copy it to your /Applications folder.

Now, the first time you run it, you'll want to right-click or CTRL-click it and click open.

Be patient on first run. Once it's working, you'll see this.

Now it's time to find your Acestream stream ID. It's a big long string of characters. You'll want to copy this string.

Hit play, and be patient. It may take a while to find peers and start buffering.

There you go!

Some notes:

  • (reddit thread by /u/GreatBusinessman)
  • Acestream P2P -- the more popular the stream, the more peers you'll have.
  • Some ISPs throttle P2P traffic. If you have constant buffering, try a VPN.
