Does anyone watch the ABC 24-hour live news stream? I have had trouble with it intermittently and now it has stopped completely. Until today I was usually able to watch it though sometimes it would freeze for varying periods of time. Today I haven't been able to get it at all. I get the static image of the presenters and the loading progress bar but nothing else. Other ABC/iview sites all work normally. I would think there would be some kind of announcement if there was a technical problem but I can't find anything. Can anyone shed more light on this?

Presumably American rather than Australian ABC.

Works for me in horrible lo-res with lo-fo sound via cable without a US proxy.

EDIT:  video is no better with a US proxy.

Yes, I thought it was clear from the context which ABC I was referring to. You are right that the quality is poor, I think that is for people with slow connections, which seems to be an issue there, but I would still like to be able to get it. So you say you can stream it right now? I can't get anything and I don't know why. Like I said, no problem with other ABC/iview sites, just the live news. What could possibly cause that?

I misread your reply. No, it is Australian ABC that I am interested in.

ABC News 24 is streaming perfectly for me right now using UnoTelly.

Bitrate is about 510kbps and the PQ looks great except for a bit of pixellation on shots where the camera pans quickly.  There is no stutter or freezing.

Thanks for the verification. I found the problem. Something was blocking the site and not reporting it.
