just a small note. tvants is relativley new and not a lot of people are using it. the more people that use it, the better the streams will be. therefore, during the u.s. open, try to keep tvants on for as long as possible :)

croat, the buffering is quite slow and it keeps backtracking, like goes up to 50 % and then falls down to 20%, it keeps going up and down but never actauly passes a 50%. any help would be very much appreciated

croat123
08-23-2005, 12:31 AM
hmm, that's strange. i'm pretty new to this p2p live stream stuff. just keep buffering. my internet connection tends to vary between 700-900kbps and it takes about a minute to buffer. but, after that minute, i can watch for as long as i like. some people on an italian board were talking about changing listening ports in order to see it better, but i'm not sure what that means...

i'll try to look into it and to give you some more concrete information in the next few days. there still isn't an english version available for tvants

croat123
08-23-2005, 12:32 AM
if you understand how to use ports, go to the tools menu and then settings. that's where you can switch ports

im connection is about 750kp. i dont realy know about the port things so i just best leave. i was hoping it would work the next day but hasnt :sad: now its barely buffering past 10% :sad:

croat123
08-23-2005, 12:42 PM
yeah, now i see the problem. when you look at the channel listings, there is a column that lists the quality of the feed (the symbol looks like a C)

this morning, it went from 100% all the way down to 20% (right now)

right now i can't see it either. more people have to be logged on in order to make sure we have a strong feed

btw, right now they are showing some triathlon so you're no exactly missing anything

croat123
08-23-2005, 12:50 PM

but does yours still buffer up to a 100%? i cou;dnt get mine past 10% today.
btw, i noticed it doesnt use windows media player, it has its own player

Great find croat, thanks a lot for sharing :)

But I have the same problem like 1sun. Don't really get it to work as it's buffering all the time at very low percentages. It happens especially with the UBC channel some others work fine for me. :confused:

Hhmm...i keep trying to download the program, but it seems to stall/stop at 7% (or sometimes other percentages) Is this just me being impatiant or could this be something to do with a firewall etc? How long did it take most people to download? I have broadband.

ok, here's the deal for people having problems. before i left my house a few hours ago, i limited the speed at which my windows media player (yes that is wmp being used, just in a different window) recieves data. 3 hours later i have come back to find that i had only buffered 35% of the feed and yet i have fluid reception. therefore, all you have to do is open your computer a few hours before tennis starts so that you can watch it without interruption :)

Thanks croat I'll try that tomorrow then. Luckily there are still enough days to go until the next tennis coverage on that channel with the semis of New Haven and the USO and I hope we all got it to work by then ;)

when I fill in 'espn' in the search box, and click on 'search', nothing appears. the only thing that happens is the search button, which flashes away for a few seconds.

the only thing at channels is cctv1 now, and it won't buffer over the 5%. should it be the full 100% to get some coverage? I only have the 'please wait' screen, and nothing else.

can somebody help me? I'm very confused now..

I went to *********** and it brought up a page entirely in Chinese. What does that mean? I didn't even download anything. I already downloaded PPLive.com before and that thing comes up in Chinese too. With that one I know how to switch the language.

Any way....since loaded PPLive.com I've had damage to one of my drives. I don't know if that's related.

croat123

no, it doesn't not have to bugger 100%, 85% is what i have found to be the minimum for uninterrupted viewing

for those having problems with the list of channels that doesn't appear, even when typing "espn", here's what i found:
1/ run tvants
2/ open www.***********
3/ the list of available channels appears on the webpage, there's something like #5 / yellow square/ sthing in blue/ name of the channel in red (ESPN UBC)
4/ click on the yellow stuff
5/ wait for the streaming to miraculously happen (it took almost an hour for me, it was buffering for a v long time, the screen remained blank, it was very poor quality, but now it's nearly perfect (it shows star sports)
