Is there a good Sopcast player for Ubuntu?

It's a program that streams videos from the net using p2p. I never used it, but my brother was quite a fan. He uses it to watch in his laptop (under Windows) football (real football aka soccer) matches that were pay-only in Spanish TVs. The software enables him to see Asian or Arab TV channels that are not accessible normally (ip restrictions likely). – Javier Rivera Sep 10 '10 at 13:53
@Javier sweet! can you edit your question and add the information there so it's not buried in the comments in the future? thanks! – Jorge Castro Sep 10 '10 at 19:52
Yes sure I can edit, but it's not my question. I don't know if so much editing is polite here. – Javier Rivera Sep 10 '10 at 20:01

I've used the Linux Sopcast Player by following the instructions outlined here. It should be OK for you too, depending on your definition of "good". :)
