Megacubo: Useful multilanguage and multiplatform IPTV player

Megacube is our next multimedia application to be reviewed. After posting about Popcorn and Stremio, now it's the turn of this interesting and striking IPTV Player, with which it is very easy to see On live Tv and videos over the Internet.

Megacube is a fabulous program to consume content from Streaming TV channels, over the Internet and anywhere in the world, including Radio channels. And all, through a friendly and simple interface that is usually quite attractive, sometimes much more than that of other similar programs, for certain users.

Among the characteristics or functionalities of the application that make it stand out or stand out, are the following:

  • Miniplayer mode: That facilitates the reproduction in «Miniplayer» or Miniature Player mode a reproduced content, to be able to access any other site or application while still viewing it, in the corner of the screen of our choice.
  • Anti-advertisement function: That mitigates and facilitates the display of advertising content in a more acceptable way for the user, by having to consume content that includes them.
  • Easy management of Favorites: Which allows adding an open channel to the program's favorites section, to be able to view them directly later. To add, press the «Ctrl + D» keys and to remove it, press the «Ctrl + D» key again, if the channel is open or loading.
  • Other: A growing Community of users that continually add new channels, which can stand out in the assisted channels section where they can show the data of the audience achieved on the Internet in almost real time. Among others, more advanced.


Install Megacube is extremely easy, you just need to run in a root terminal la command order next:

wget -qO- | bash

In my personal case, I ran it from the path / opt with my normal user with administrator privileges (sudoers). After executing the command, and if there are no errors, it can be executed through the direct access in the main menu, multimedia category.

When starting for the first time, the application asks if you want to use in exclusive or shared mode. For our test case, we select the second option, and then for its search bar we proceeded to search online content that coincided with a search pattern. Once a link has been obtained and selected, among many shown, the application tries to connect to the content of the selected channel to display it on the screen, as long as it is accessible for that moment.

In short, and personally, it seems to me a interesting alternative to use in case for some reason it cannot be used Kodi, Stremio, Popcorn Time and you want something more than just use VLC or a program of Torrents. I also emphasize that according to my experience, takes a long time to open, although I assume that maybe, it is because of the speed of my Internet link.

      Greetings Sam! I searched the internet and I didn't see any documentation on that audio problem. I couldn't tell you what it is, it sounded good to me when I installed it. I use Stremio, it is much better. I currently use it without any problem.
