Zattoo on Ubuntu Feisty

Zattoo is a program that allows us to see streaming TV channels over Internet.

It is unfortunately closed source.


Let's go to official Zattoo web page: zattoo.com

Check on your language flag to see what channels are available to see at your zone.


Register to obtain zattoo program: http://zattoo.com/register

After registering, select linux and download zattoo deb file:
e.g: zattoo-2.2.10.6523-i386.deb

Now install the deb file:
$sudo dpkg -i zattoo-2.2.10.6523-i386.deb

I get dependency problems:
zattoo needs libgtkglext1 and libxul0d but those are not installed.

We install those required packages:
$sudo aptitude install libgtkglext1 libxul0d

Once dependencies are solved zattoo package configures automatically.
If that does not happen, then exec:
$sudo dpkg --configure zattoo

Download and install the Adobe Flash plugin from http://www.adobe.com if you have not it on your system yet.

run:
$zattoo_player

introduce your zattoo login (used when registering) and enjoy!

NOTE: To obtain new zattoo versions when they will be available, go to zattoo page, click on login word near country flags, and introduce your email and password.

NOTE: If you wanna know on which ports zattoo is listening, exec this command:
$sudo netstat -l -p -e | grep -i zattoo
