More About P2P TV On Mac OS X

After discovering the Linux version of PPS, I went on to the other P2P TV providers to check if they have client software for other OS besides Windows. So the next one I found was PPTV, which has a web based version for OS X. The prerequisite was to have Microsoft Silverlight installed. I was skeptical because of the high CPU issue when running Flash. And I was right. PPTV did work on OS X but the trouble is that Silverlight takes up too much CPU resource. My CPU temperature went up to about 80 degree celsius when streaming contents. Bad idea.

I guess I should just stick to my iPad. Just hope that the streaming apps support Airplay fully in iOS 5. Then I can continue to watch the contents on my TV via the Airplay. 🙂

Anyway for the folks who don’t mind the heat on your Mac, this is the link to PPTV – http://cool.pptv.com/

  1. I can’t seem to get PPTV on my Mac to work – I have tried using Safari, Firefox and even Chrome on my Mac, and have Silverlight installed, but everytime I tried playing a movie or TV Series, I always get a 节目加载失败 error message.

    I am using it on both my 2008 MBP (Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz) running OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) as well as my Core-i5 27″ IMab running OSX 10.7.1 (Lion), and both have the same results.

    Any ideas what could be wrong?

    1. Hi. I suspect the country you are accessing or the programme you are watching from could be blocked.
      Does it happen to every stream you choose?
      The usual blocks are HK serials. I do have problem accessing it in Singapore too.
