Somehow the Canadian and Aussie feeds are blocked in the US. NBC sucks,
we don't watch their coverage at all. At least NBC does say they only
work with Windows or some Mac browsers. Some CNBC feeds work. Maybe by 2010.

It will only change if people fight for it. The IOC is forcing the media companies to block your address based on the location of your provider. You can get coverage out of country by using a proxy in the country of which you want to view.

I'm not quite sure how to do that. I tried and it still showed an error
message "no video" when I selecteda live stream. A subsequent attempt
just took down Firefox.

Default (OT) Number One Bug and the Olympics

Wasn't there supposed to be a Linux version of Micro$oft's
Silverlight? I forget what its called but I'm certain I've heard of
it before. I watched the opening ceremony of the Olympics on my Vista
(ack) laptop and was very impressed with the show. Best opening
ceremony of any Olympics I've watched ever. The Chinese have really
shown what they are truly capable of.

Anywho, I was sort of impressed with Silverlight. It worked pretty
well, a FAST, especially in Firefox 3. I've had problems with Flash
in the past on WinXP, Vista, and Ubuntu. Recently upgraded to Flash10
on my Vista machine and many of those problems have done away. The
main one is random lockups and BSOD when watching Flash video in full
screen for too long. With Flash10 that's gone. Can't wait for
Flash10 for Linux to come out of Beta. I'm impressed with its Windows
counterpart, its faster and uses less system resources.

I am not sure what the that is that you are talking about but I found that telling the servers that you had MS IE or some other MS product stopped Firefox from crashing. Are they crashing us on purpose?

I would say that was a good thing until Silverlight takes over the internet and Linux users are forced to pay MS for the rights to surf the net.

I think mono is also on the black list. I know it was when I caught it as a teen.

It doesn't work with the US nbcolympics.com; I finally ended up having
to dual-boot into WinXP in order to watch the live & rewind Sailing videos.

I didn't say it would. I don#t think Moonlight is anywhere near
finished.
