Web Coverage?

Postby Half Miler » Sun Aug 24, 2003 12:53 am

I've read in a few posts that some of you are able to watch live coverage of the meet at Eurosport.com. Here in the States, of course, there's no TV coverage until Tuesday, so I was excited to hear about any web feeds.

Checked all over the Eurosport site but all they had were previously-taped interviews of Jones, Capel, etc. While this was better than nothing, I'm really curious about any actual event coverage, live or not.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Goto www.eurosport.com

Click on the "Live Audio" icon near along the left-hand side of the page. Paris is 6 hours ahead of the USA East Coast during this time of year, so make sure you adjust for that in order to get the correct audio feed.

Also, you can get the live text update through www.eurosport.com, but better yet, I'd goto the IAAF website, click on the 9th IAAF WC icon (just under "Live Now" along the right-hand side of the page. From there, you can click on the icon "Select your channel" under the General Info section on the right-hand side of the page. You'll be able to see the full text read-out of the competition as it happens.

Here's some general info. "Live Audio" is actually delayed by about 10 seconds across the web, so if you are listening to the audio and watching the text update as it happens, you'll see the result on text prior to hearing the result on audio.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

I've been unable to get Live Audio to work on Eurosport. I've got Real Audio Player set up on all my browsers, but get errors every time.

Is anyone able to get the Live Audio feed? I read where some others are having problems as well.

At this pace (2.45.xx), they could be under 27m.

I saw on this and a few other threads that some people are having trouble getting the eurosport live audio feed to work. I also have troubles getting realaudio to work as a plug-in. If this is your trouble, you might be able to get around it the way I do. Just open your RealPlayer (no need to open a web browser, just the realplayer) under file go to Open Location. Where it asks for a URL type:

rtsp://realserver.tf1.ext.imaginet.fr/e ... 2003_0.smi

Hit ok and that should do it. Hope that helps.

Where did you get that url? The one I pasted in (from the link page) doesn't work.
