Installing and removing the Octoshape Client from the machine.



Octoshape application installed on a device in Windows, Linux or OSX operating systems.



  1. Installation
    1. Click here for the Octoshape Windows application
    2. Click here for the Octoshape OS X application
      1. Typical install issues with OSX are firewalls or other security programs running in "highly" restrictive modes.  If you need help in diagnosing this please notify Octoshape Support (submit a ticket or email) with a list of your running processes.  You can get this from Activity Monitor in Applications/Utilities and selecting File-Save.  Also, please include your OSX configuration - OSX version 10.X and browser used for the installation.
    3. Click here for the Octoshape Linux application
      1. Download the .bin file and make it executable by typing chmod +x octosetup-linux_i386.bin in a terminal. Type ./octosetup-linux_i386.bin and follow the installation instructions.

        Start the Octoshape client, for example by navigating to the Octoshape folder (i.e. cd into the directory and type: ./OctoshapeClient

        You can now playback an Octoshape stream from a web page or any player, as long as you leave the OctoshapeClient running in the terminal.

        If you are running Linux on a 64-bit distribution the ia32-libs package is required.  Please check with your distro package for the appropriate ia32-libs.  We have a detail Guide for Running Octoshape Client on 64-bit Systems.
