    Just pop the URL into VLC and have a look at it right away. Carlton is doing commentary.

    So then the same URL delivers different content to different territories. Marvelous, this will create some confusion. =)

    I think this year the ASO has been second-guessing itself a lot...Sainz getting time back, then not, Withdrawals vanishing from the list, now this...

    I want the old fascist "no buts" ASO to be honest... I mean the site is FUBAR and now we have to factor in their changing minds... :deal

    I've found it now on VLC but my broadband connection is so slow, the buffering is terrible!!!

    Eurosport Player on the other hand runs seamlessly, so guess i'll have to wait to 23.00 and watch it that way

    I can't believe that camera crews have a day's free roam in the bivouac, and we get ministers & argentine bands and disco bob apple. Christ.

    No, I think that was just me confusing things; the Tennis I was seeing is on British Eurosport on Player (I have a subscription), the feed from VLC is showing Dakar but it's now frozen... i've been looking at a shot of Patronelli on his quad for five minutes now!

    Check! Confusion is put on hold then.

    And why would Patronelli for five minutes be a bad thing? :D:D

    If you are recording it will do that a lot, but VLC is AWESOME. When you go to watch the recorded file later it will magically play ok, complete with all the bits you didn't see because you were looking at Patronelli.
    I love VLC now. It's my new favourite.
    I'm hoping to convince my girlfriend to have a threesome with me and VLC.
