I wish there was way to make this work, too.
I'm not a dev and neither a true Linux guy, but isn't there a way to tell an app to load its libs from its home directory?

Steps to run sopcast on openelec.

1. Openelec i368 build (Tested on Intel i386 1.9.6)
2. Install plugin "plugin.video.x-sopcast-0.2.10" from here => forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=129996
3. ssh to openelec setup
4. Download libstdcpp5 to storage (needed by sopcast) from here => www.sopcast.com/download/libstdcpp5.tgz
5. Unpack libstdcpp5 package
6. Now we need modify readonly openelec system ;)
7. Go to sites.google.com/site/andreierdei/openelec-addons and download "shell.squashfs-tools.squashfs.i386-1.0.0.zip"
8. Install it.
9. Reboot and ssh again
10. Mount flash as rw => mount -o remount,rw /flash
11. Create two dirs in your /storage for example
mkdir system.old
mkdir system.new
12. Mount SYSTEM image to system.old
mount -t squasfs -o loop /flash/SYSTEM /storage/system.old
13. Copy all files from system.old to system.new
cd system.old
cp -a * /storage/system.new
14. Unount system.old
cd ..
umount /storage/system.old
15. Copy all files from unpacked libstcpp5 package to /storage/system.new/usr/lib (note: copy with -a option see readme)
16. Create new SYSTEM image
mksquasfs /storage/system.new /storage/SYSTEM
17. Replace old image with new
cd /flash
rm SYSTEM
cp /storage/SYSTEM /flash/SYSTEM
18. Reboot and run sopcast from plugins under video section
19. Check xbmc thread for other configuration tips and usage help.

Yes, It's working fine. Channel list is broken but you can enter channel number or configure SportsDevil plugin. Check XBMC thread for detsils.

when I copy /storage/SYSTEM to /flash/SYSTEM I get this error:
cp write error: no space left.

So I copied modified SYSTEM(with SYSTEM.md5,KERNEL and KERNEL.md5) to /storage/.update and reboot system.
Update process is completed, but then i still get the message "plugin script failed".

I tested it on i386 build and X64 build.
Sopcast 'sp-auth' binary only works on i386 build, so plugin works only on i368 build.

I think problem is in python script, sp-auth works in x86_64 too.
I tested it on my desktop pc(x86_64) and it works.

In openelec I get some errors on python when I start x-sopcast

Dj, i was getting that, then realised the typo.

Both squash are missing the "h".

12. Mount SYSTEM image to system.old
mount -t squashfs -o loop /flash/SYSTEM /storage/system.old
16. Create new SYSTEM image
mksquashfs /storage/system.new /storage/SYSTEM
