I have DSL, running WMP and it is streaming perfect.
Best runs so far...
Trevor Hansen, Struharik, Shapiro killed it.
Rusty Malinowski rode awesome but fell once.

Sharpe fell twice.
Shane did maybe three tricks total.
Grassman kiled but fell once.
Tino fell.

is it just the internet compression that makes the video grainy?

It is so political that Sharpe got in.

Same thing every year dude.

Rusty's run was so much better than Sharpe's. Plus Chad fell twice..

I hate the tour.

Parks throwing almost everything switch was pretty sick Hyperlite rider or not!

And I agree Sharpe should not have advanced. Everything will be political when there is human judgement. That is just the way it will be.

Soven's run was the poop too.

Ok maybe someone can help me out. I have ADSL and I get about 2-3 seconds of good footage then it justs starts freezing/jumping. Is it just my sucky conection?

Must be - I have DSL & it works fine...

Except, as others have said, the CAMERA WORK SUCKS! It's like the dude doesn't know people are watching or something.

Hopefully this is a learing experience and there will be improved coverage to come - it is a cool idea...

Just got back,,,got some good footage too.

angi - was the camera remote controlled or was someone actually operating it?
Old    wakejunkeygirl            05-01-2004, 7:20 PM Reply   
Chris--If I was seeing the correct camera, I saw two guys controlling the camera at different times..but it was not being held by either, they were zooming it around really fast but it was mounted. I am guessing that was the live webcam, becuz all the other cameras were being held by individuals ??

ya, now they're still terrible filmers AND poorly cutting between two cameras as one can't cover the whole course now because of tents that block the view. nice. my girlfriend and i were just trying to watch the women ride but we gave up.

i agree, chris. why didnt they just use tripods? oh well, it was still terrible. and what was with the cameraman on the left (when the boat was on the left side of the course) zooming in waaaaay too much and losing the rider half the time? did that piss off anyone else besides me? someone please take that dude's zoom button away.
