you'd think they'd let us here at the DSN see the webcast but... our computers aren't setup to deal with the MMS:// urls and we dont have anyone willing to set one up to make it :) oh well... i'll be hoping to find some recordings later, as none of the tv channels we get here will carry it either.

Is anyone else having trouble obtaining the webcast? I've been directed to a page asking me to download microsoft windows media 11.
Tried to do that but don't think I succeeded. Then I tried the various other sites they recommend - the ones in Japanese - but couldn't get anything to work. Anybody got any suggestions, thanks in advance.

Under 2 hours 30 minutes to launch (hope someone deletes back the pointless webcast questions).

Under 2 hours 30 minutes to launch (hope someone deletes back the pointless webcast questions).

Given that this is a site full of fans for this kind of thing, I think questions about how to properly make sure we can SEE it, is not pointless discussion at all.  

A note for those having issues:

VLC Media Player is an open source alternative to MS Media Player, and if you install it and use "Open Stream", you can view the sample, and webcast stream when it is available.  There is also a portable version available at PortableApps.com for any interested in always having stuff with them.

Now, back to our regularly re-scheduled launch!

DSN stations are all GO, and waiting for launch so we can pick up the ball and help get it to the moon!  All factors that I can get my ears on from here are GO.

Works and there's two funny Japanese guys joking around about something :) Bad bandwidth though, as it's very jumpy.

Wow love the music. Think PAO could learn something?
