Do many geeks here watch NASA TV?
How is your performance of the stream?
I have watched with varying degrees of success for many years.
At work and at home, I can stream the standard NASA TV steam pretty well, it's acceptable quality
However at home now I really want a better quality stream to watch on TV.


This helpful comment on Slashdot links to several versions of the stream.
The 1200k/s stream looks fantastic, but I can only stream a few seconds before it will stop.
I tried late last night at home, Waitakere City Auckland, still with no success. (No other machines using the WiFi, torrents stopped etc of course). I am using VLC on MacBook running 10.6.2. BigTime is my plan.


The stream is Yahoo/Akamai, does anyone know much about these?
Is it possible to connect to a local Amakai server directly?


This is the stream I use most.

The NASA TV page does not link through to the Yahoo streams, I can't find a directory of Yahoo NASA streams.
Also I read that the Yahoo streams may be delayed 1 or 2 minutes, this is fine with me, I would prefer a better quality of stream with a delay.


Cheers,
Joseph.

In North Americal it's available un-encrypted on Echostar 7 so I don't watch the streams. It's only 480i (not HD) but still better than streams I think.

I started this stream while watching on satellite and the stream was delayed 10 to 15 seconds, but that may just be normal buffering.
