imageWe all know football has low WAF. Having kids around doesn’t help either. So having a live stream on computer helps in this situations. Luckily, these days free TV is easy to find.

Start by going to some P2PTV portal like MyP2P.eu or WorldTvPc and search for live sports. Try to find a TV station with high bitrate, high rating and in language you understand.

Then, figure out which P2P video application you need. Most popular are TVU, TVants (translated) and SopCast. Download and enjoy!

Good choice for Euro 2008 is TVants and Croatian public TV station HRT.

All is not perfect, tough:

  • be sure to connect well before you plan to start watching as it can take several minutes before you get enough connections (this can be fixed on Vista and XP),
  • stream is also delayed for couple of seconds to half a minute,
  • I don’t know about other programs, but TVants has a band of Chinese ads on top and bottom of video window, but it’s not annoying,
  • picture will hand from time to time, and occasionally freeze, try reconnecting if it gets bad.

Warning: this is probably illegal, so it’s your responsibility if you step on someone toes.

No way that _watching_ is illegal.

Transmitting, on the other hand, is. But that's not our problem.

You can use this link rtsp://media.saan.hr/htv2 for look football, sports or anyone on croatian 2 TV program. It's useful because you don't need any software, but only player who support RTSP protocol. As we know stream is slow when miltiple users look or stream video. I think that stream speed so high there, because I don't see any slowmotion pictures.

@spider: That's why I prefer P2PTV. It's not slow when more people join... Actually it gets faster!
