Update: Even though MyP2P is not online anymore, a new site featuring a similar design and functionality, and old members of MyP2P, is. You can point your browser to to access it.

Update 2: WiziWiG has shut down. Read on for a list of alternatives.

If you are looking for alternatives, check out the listing at the end of this article. went offline less than a month after I reviewed their service here on Ghacks. The site was basically a live sports aggregator. It collected live links from a variety of sources, bundled them neatly as game and match listings to make it as easy as possible for its users to find live streams of matches they want to watch.

For the past five days or so, myp2p has been offline. Both the forum and main website are not accessible anymore. I have been asked by several users who read my article if there was an alternative available, with football season starting in Europe and all.

The official news is this: is offline and may not come back. The developers and maintainers of the service have moved to a new domain called which is currently experiencing heavy traffic and as such denies connections. The forum, hosted on the subdomain works fine though, and users can read up and discuss what is happening right there. website screenshot

A forum announcement reads:

Site update: At the moment our main website is offline. The forum as you can see will keep running and you can here provide eachother with links and info. We hope to be able to have the site back running tomorrow morning European time. Thanks for your understanding!

Update 11am CET: still working on it, we try the best we can!

List of alternatives for the service

Forum members find several live stream links in the forum, for instance in the Weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays forums. Here are several alternatives that are currently up and running:

  • - The successor of MyP2P, great site that is now fully accessible.
  • Football Streaming - Lists several football games per day with links to multiple streaming options.
  • Livetv - This appears to be a Russian service that is however available in other languages as well. It concentrates on sports and has without doubt one of the best, if not the best, selection of sports matches that stream over the Internet. Most streams are online streams that you can watch in your browser if you are having Flash installed, others link to programs that you need to install before you can watch the matches.
  • Live Foot - A French website listing many football matches and streaming options for each match (including language used in the stream and if registration is required).
  • VSLive - The website covers all sports and displays information about streams on its front page. It divides sports by tournament, division or country making it easy to find what you are looking for.
  • SportP2P - Another sports streaming website covering more than just football. You find basketball, cricket, motorsports, hockey, or rugby as well listed here.
  • Stream2Watch - Displays soccer, cycling, rugby, cricket and other sport streams that get updated regularly.
  • Live Streaming Sport - Another site that supports more than just football. Seems fairly accurate and up to date when it comes to streams listed on the site.

Note: Several MyP2P clones have been created that look like the original site but are not related in any way to it. Many of these rip-offs display lots of advertisement and some may even be malicious. We have made the decision not to add those because of that.

We do recommend that you have proper antivirus software and maybe a popup blocker installed before you visit any of those sites. Many of them display massive amounts of ads and popups to you. Note that requests to install a plugin are ads and not something that you need to do to watch the streams.

The new Wiziwig website

Alternatives that are not working anymore

  • Free Football - Offers many matches including UEFA Champions League, Friendlies, UEFA Europa League and all European and International football leagues. Has also a section for other sports including Cricket or US Sports like Baseball, American Football, Baseball and Basketball.
  • LS Hunter - Has live stream links for football, basketball, baseball, motor sports, rugby and more.
  • SportyFever Link to live game streams, mainly football but also cricket. [no longer available]

    Why not make use of the mplayer.conf?

  2. Mike J said on August 1, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    Huh, I have never even seen this “font cache” pane; videos play at once for me, using VLC & XP SP3.

    1. Martin said on August 1, 2010 at 3:39 pm

      Mike, in theory this should have only been displayed once to you, at the very first video that you played with VLC. The time this window is displayed depends largely on the number of fonts in your font directory.

      1. Mike J said on August 2, 2010 at 2:30 pm

        huh, I lucked out for a change?? Amazing!!
        Apparently VLC keeps this info through version updates, but I didn’t see this message after a fresh OS install about 8 weeks ago, & a new VLC.

    yes, yes, i have the same problem. sometimes, VLC crashes when it is playing .mov file.

      Great tip, thanks a lot Kishore.

  5. javier said on August 14, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    @Kishore, I’ll try your tips, but does this mean it will no longer show subtitles either?
    I do use subtitles, but the fontcache dialog box pops up (almost) everytime I play a file.

    Could this be related to the fonts I have installed? Or if I add/remove fonts to my system?

    I’ll try to do a fresh install also, if your tips does no work. I’ll post back here later…


  6. Kishore said on August 15, 2010 at 12:38 pm

    @ Javier, The trick i posted will show up subtitles too. If not,

  7. Kishore said on August 15, 2010 at 12:39 pm

    @ Javier, The trick i posted will show up subtitles too. If not,Dont worry, VLC is currently sorting out this issue and the next version will be out soon.

    No probs @ Martin !! Its my pleasure

  8. Ted said on October 22, 2010 at 3:57 am

    Try running LC with administrator privileges. That seemed to fix it for me

  9. Evan said on December 8, 2013 at 1:48 am

    I am using SMplayer 0.8.6 (64-bit) (Portable Edition) on Windows 7 x64. Even with the -nofontconfig parameter in place SMplayer still scans the fonts. Also, I have enabled normal subtitles and it is still scanning fonts before playing a video. Also, it does this every time the player opens a video after a system restart (only the fist video played).

    Does that mean that only instrumental versions of songs will be available for non-paying users?
