  • Open VLC
  • Go to View > Playlist
  • Double click Local Network
  • Click Network streams (SAP) once.
  • Wait about 30 seconds (if your firewall asks you to allow VLC to access the network, say OK).
  • Double click on Gustavus in the main window.
  • Double-click on a channel to view it.
  • Go to View > Full screen to view in full screen.
  • For more selections, instead of Local Network choose the Internet playlist beneath Local Network and navigate through the channels.

Mac

  • Open VLC
  • Go to Window > Playlist
  • Go to File > Services Discovery > SAP Announcements
  • Wait about 30 seconds (if your firewall asks you to alow VLC to access the network, say OK).
  • Click on the plus sign next to SAP Announcements to see channels. Click on Gustavus to see local channels or UCTV International to see international channels.
  • Double-click on a channel to view it.
  • Go to View > Full screen to view in full screen.
  • For the International channels you may get better results if you go to Video > Deinterlace > Bob (that will get rid of the lines you see when there is a lot of motion).
