MicroXP-ST v4 is released and now available to download!
Already know how to install? Simply click the Downloads link above and download the latest version of MicroXP-ST
First off, Hello MyP2P folks. I, TwinKillings, don’t take credit for this, I just compiled it and modified it to make it easier for MAC OSXers. So here I have created a little step by step tutorial on how to get StreamTorrent to work on MAC OSX.
ALSO, I DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY HARM THAT SHOULD BEFALL YOUR COMPUTER. I DON’T PROVIDE THIS INFO BECAUSE I HAVE TO. IT’S ONLY BECAUSE I WANT TO.
There is no direct way to install StreamTorrent build 0078 onto Mac OSX. Here is the only method that works really well.
This method allows you to use StreamTorrent in a virtual machine.
What I have done is made a 500+ MB premade MicroXP installation that has StreamTorrent working and tweaked it. I took eXperience’s stripped down version of Windows XP called MicroXP and have installed all the required programs and necessary applications to make it work for everything StreamTorrent. *UPDATE* this version is 600+ MB.
CURRENT VERSION IS: v4
This version (v4) is built on Mountain Lion OS X 10.8 64-bit
Forthcoming versions (v5 and up) will be built on 64-bit versions of OS X as well as options for x86 Windows 7 or x64 Windows 7
Now for the Requirements:
At least (and these are bare minimums):
A 2.0GHz 32 or 64-bit Intel Processor in your MAC (Will work on x64 10.7 and up)
MAC OS X with newest version of VirtualBox (4.2.18)
(www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads) click on download link VirtualBox 4.2.18 for OS X hosts
2GB+ of Ram
64MB of Video Ram for proper video playback
10GB of free storage space on your Hard Drive
Initial Video setting capable of at least 800×600 which can be changed later. (Made it more compatible with netbooks and macbooks)
uTorrent or another torrenting program for your Mac. uTorrent can be found at www.utorrent.com
Links to the WiZiWiG Forums:

http://forum.wiziwig.eu/forums/22-MLB-Baseball for the baseball links!
Here we go:
1. Firstly on your Mac OSX, go to http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads and grab the LATEST “Virtualbox for OS X Hosts” version.
2. After download, simply install with the (mostly) step-by-step instructions.
3. After everything is installed you will need to adjust an update setting so as to not cause problems with mismatched files later on down the road.
(VirtualBox updates way too much for me to keep up with)
and the click on the update arrows. Uncheck the “Check for Updates” box and click OK.
NOW for the VERY IMPORTANT PART:
Now use one of these links to download the file:
Mirror Download Link:
Torrent Download Link:
Looking for the old version? (Click Here)
3a. Downloading using a torrent client (If you use the Direct Link skip to Step 4)
4. After download simply double click on the
“MicroXP-ST v4.ova”file and it will automatically add itself to your VirtualBox list of virtual machines.
Simply click Import to add it to the list in the VirtualBox Manager
5. To start the machine simply highlight “MicroXP-ST v4” and click start in the top left corner of the VirtualBox window.
Starting the Machine (if things are going properly you should see this!)
6. It should then start and once it has booted you will need to wait for it to find drivers and adjust itself for your computer. (Give it a couple minutes, it may ask you to reboot)
7. If you see this screen, then press “Yes” to restart. (If not, then don’t worry about it.)
8. After you reboot MicroXP-ST v4 you can begin to use XP and test out all the functions. It is normal that StreamTorrent loads up on reboot, (I added it to the Startup folder, you can remove it if it bothers you.)
If you want the cool icon like I have that launches MicroXP right from the OS X desktop…
If you go to the View options in VirtualBox (with MicroXP-ST running)
Click on Seamless Mode or CTRL+L it will then look like this.
You can even go into Fullscreen mode from here too, which is pretty cool.
I have also included VLC if you would like to get some different view options for the streams. See forum.wiziwig.eu for more info on how to get VLC to work.
Use it for what it is. Don’t try and modify too much of MicroXP, you’ll break it.
Especially do not try and change the user name from Administrator to anything else. It will break.
You may password it if you like.
It is basically Windows XP Pro. So if you want to use it like XP you can, but I took the time to make sure things work properly with the way its currently set up. Don’t cry to me if you break it. You have been warned.
Peerblocker will not interfere with StreamTorrent. It is there to protect you from the MLB goons.
I have decided to preempt the virus software due to some issues in performance it may cause. I have installed Secunia PSI to keep things up to date, it should run in the background.
eXperience for creating MicroXP
