    Hi Usman. I’ve loaded SodaPlayer on my imac OS Sierra 10.12.6 and when I try to load an AceStream link I get a popup which states….AceStream Error Cannot load the transport file.
    Can you help me out?

    • VPNRanks says:

      Hi Konrad, Following is the setup which you can use for your mac.
      1. Search your computer for “Network and Sharing Center” (or Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network and Sharing Center).
      2. Click “Internet Options” bottom left.
      3. Click on the “Connections” tab.
      4. Click LAN settings (under Local Area Network (LAN settings)).
      5. Uncheck “Use a proxy server for your lan” (under Proxy server).
      Solution 2: not all broadcasts created via new version of Ace Stream (2.1 and higher) are suppported by client software of old versions (2.0.х and lower). If you attempt to watch a new broadcast using the old engine, an error “Cannot load transport file” will appear. Update your Ace Stream to avoid seeing the subsequent error
      Important Note: Solution 1 is applicable on Windows. While the second one applies on Mac devices
