There's no need to record the matches, you can download all later on the Wimby website. But IF you need to record i dunno how...

BTW, I don't loaded the Semis Venus-Maria from last over 500KB and toke two hours to dl...

The stream is DRM protected....license is for 45 days - I'm working on something.

I'd expect the matches to be all over bittorrent later today. :)

I think you might need a license to watch them so it might not do any good, but I'm not sure.

U r absolutely right you do! The license is also individualised to your pc.

Actually you can record it but you can't watch at the same time. It doesn't allow you to access the same stream twice at the same time.

That's right, even those of us who have paid for this service it seems have only 45 days of license...which means if you dvd the file...it won't work! I'm looking at the DRM method now, and I'm not even sure it would allow u to copy from the hd to dvd. I'll have a look when I get home from work and see what if anything is available for download today...we're still on rain delay after after about 30 mins of play in total.

If you using something like WM Recorder recording to .asf....you still cannot replay that - it will look for the DRM rights license

so if i download the matches and after the 45 days the license expired, will i be able to still watch the match? possibly upload the match now that u don't need the DRM license? Thanks

damn i knew it was too good to be true :o

No u can't - as far as I can make out from what I've researched today the DRM remains on your pc. The subscription kind of states it's for 45 days - we are not going to know if we can play these things on the originating pc after that time...until it happens. The DRM is set the minute you stream or play the thing for the first time

Yeah, I allow such a thought as well. ;)
I think someone will try, and we'll know for sure.

I have a software called tunebite that records the copyrighted video into a format without it... the disadvantage is that it loses some quality and it takes time to do it...because the video has to be played completely just like the VCR

Plus MATCHES are soo heavy!!! Dulko v Laine played 6 games and it was already 300MB... if you want to download you have to necessarily do it at 1000K because at 500K its only streaming video... :(
