The "AFL is on broadband!" thread seems to be getting a little jumbled, so maybe we can use this one just for "quality" postings and info.
I loaded the Bulldogs/Saints match at 5:30 PM EST on Friday. After an initial 20 second buffering I watched the rest with no problems. That was just 13 hours after opening bounce. Don't know how they did that, but Wow!
Tried Kang/Haw @ 1:00 PM EST Sat. Took 5 attempts to load before it started to run correctly. Thought I was good until halftime, when it just quit playing, period. Gave up.
Sunday morning watched my Blues put on another defensive clinic against the Bombers. No problems---other than the final score.
Sunday afternoon watched WCE/Frem and BL/Syd with no problems.
This afternoon I watched Adel/Port. Just to be perverse I tried using Firefox and got a good 512 kbps feed. No buffering. A great match. If you get the chance, watch it---or try.
Unfortunately my results don't match up with those of lowend5 who recently posted his woes on the other thread. Broadband can be fickle to begin with and BigPond/Telstra seem to have their own set of problems on top of that. I'm not going to get too excited about my string of good fortune. I just hope I haven't used it all up.
