Live chess stream issues


[link to this post]
 
The World Chess Campionship streaming live:

http://chennai2013.fide.com/anand-carlsen-video-with...

Now, it works great apart from 'stalling' every 10 seconds - you have to hit stop/play to get it going again.

Anybody else see these issues? I diunno if it's my connection or not.

Reminds me of the late '90's and realplayer...

Streams fine for me on an 80/20 FTTC connection.

(Only tried for ~5 minutes, it's not the most action-packed stream I've ever seen tongue)

OK, I just timed it over 5 minutes - I get a stall every 17 seconds. Something my end frown

And what do you mean, action-packed'? I's riveting smile

There is something going on, but I haven't got time to debug (I even bypassed my router and plugged straight into modem with ethernet, but it still happened).

Anyway, I found another stream:

Thanks for the links - I used to play myself at club level.

Brilliant game today (once I found the alternative stream). Magnus doesn't give up too easily, and I think he will wear Anand out and win.

BTW, I think my problem was watching on a lowly Notebook with single core Atom cpu. Network tests all are fine - I think it is the site that causes it as YouTube ws fine. Rest day tomorrow, so Friday I will use my 'proper' laptop.

I still play the computer - Windows 8 from the Windows store: The Chess Lv.100 published by Unbalance.
I've only ever won once on the hardest setting and playing White - it's quite good!

Magnus wins! And funnily enough the 'official' stream worked perfectly today (although I still used the youtube stream as it is better).
