During the tournament an on-line broadcast from the "Olymspiysky" Sports Complex will be provided on site www.kremlincup.comstar.ru (http://www.kremlincup.comstar.ru/). Connections will be made daily from 10 a.m. until the end of the matches. In order to organize the Internet-broadcast "Comstar United Telesystems" will use 5 video cameras installed at each court of the sports complex. Depending on the type of the Internet connection the users will have the possibility to view the matches on-line at the speed of 56 and 256 Kbit/sec.

Only problem is that I'm not getting any audio at all.

Anyone else having that trouble?

It's amazing to watch the matches live on the computer. :hearts:
Eventually, video feed and/online broadcast from the tournament website will be popular.
Grand Slam websites don't have one yet.. :rolleyes: :o

this is the 4th? (maybe only 3rd) year moscow has had a webcast (best quality tho, cause only center and court 1 had the 256kps option before) and no other tournament has decided to do this. looks unlikely... :mad: the grand slams should have something like this for the courts that aren't shown on tv

The matches are pretty damn boring without sound.. I feel asleep during the Benesova vs. Bondarenko match.

This time gotta listen to loud trance beats to keep me awake. :drink::yawn:

Its not so much the commentary because sometimes the commetators are so inept and have such a strong case of favoritism.. its too aggravating. I miss the sound of the balls being wacked (oooh yeah ;)) and the squeak of shoes and the grunts (not in some players cases :p).

Commentary in Russian.... thats gonna be scary. ;)
Btw matches start soon. :bounce:

If its still this choppy for Marat's and Anastasia's + Vera's matches i may just break my computer with my bare fists...

Its always has this nasty overlay light too. At first when the picture shows up its a nice natural light.. 20 seconds in its like someone turned on some fugly bright lights. :(
