Am I missing something here? Isn't multicast used for broadcast, and not for video on demand which is what TVNZ is giving us here?

yes it is - my bad, I was hoping for broadcasting not regurgitated shortland street episodes Embarassed I thought "on demand" would entail broadcasts available on demand.

Very impressed, a lot better than I thought it would be! just remember that (as the logo states) it's Beta version 1.0.. could be a few things that need to be changed or reviewed ;)

Wow.. the Telethon that takes me back!

barf: great site, but one issue here I can reproduce on all my PCs
anything I view which displays a short advertisment first only displays the advertisment and won't load the actual content - ie it just sits on the last frame of the advertisment
Using Firefox 2 and Flash 9 - no problems with Youtube, soapbox or etc

barf - I get the same problem under ubuntu with FF2 and flash 9 - it also wouldn't do full-screen.  However, I left it for a couple of minutes and the main programme started - still no full-screen, though.  On my win xp box (with ff2 and flash 9, also), it's fine.  Did you resolve the problem?
