Is anyone else having problems with the NBC tennis streams?:confused: I keep software on my Win 7 install well maintained and updated but the NBC flash streams keep crashing Firefox even though ESPN3 always works great. I had to install Google Chrome which so far has not crashed.:confused:

chrome worked well for you? I had alot of stream issues with NBC using firefox as well.. good for like 10 mins then freezes and locks the browser up.

I've watched live streams of other things before and it's never been this bad. Maybe my connection decided to suck today, I don't know. Sometimes it pauses for five minutes.

It may be due to youtube, which is owned by Google, handling the streaming. I've never trusted Google. Perhaps they are purposely crashing Firefox which, for me, has always been stable.

Anyhow, I'll stream with Chrome until the Olympics is over then uninstall Chrome.

Yeah the stream is pathetic. Good quality, but it won't last more than 5 minutes :o

Today the NBC streams are working great with Firefox. Apparently some IT guy found and eliminated the problem.

NBC is a piece of shit. Their iPad video app says there are no scheduled events going on right now for tennis. :facepalm:

I have to say, the coverage is amazing. Seven channels and the streams work very well.

It's really good today. I guess my internet connection was worse yesterday. Yeah I agree it sucks that it's pretty far behind.

Does anyone know how you can enter the NBC streaming if you don't buy any tv distributor?
It is driving me crazy that I can watch only the centre court(on other streams). Please help me
