Via Youtube:
Video is updating only once every few seconds at best, but it's better than nothing.

Portuguese commentary audio is not choppy.  We get short announcements in English, too!

What is projecting on the house-left screen?  It's mostly or all bright-washed out.

I think Brazil were using a prerecorded live action/animation to show something to the crowd. I don't think it was a livestream from China.

the video was indeed a video mix of prerecorded footage and animations but the muffled barely audible voice occasionally was a phone line from Taiyuan giving updates.
