    They are hard to find since they are nested 3 layers deep in your site.

    I barely had the patients to download one clip since it took so long.

    The movie had an annoying high pitched buzzing sound while I was viewing it.

    That's too bad if you didn't have the patience, you're missing out. But as you can see, they are lots of matches on there, there are a lot of clips you can try. It depend's on your server actually. That will determine how long clips take to download.

    A lot of people tell me it takes seconds to download the clips on their PC.

    They downloaded just fine for me! Great work again! I was wondering if you had any Joachim Johannson matches by an off chance?

    Thanks Jack! When I get comments like the first one, it can be worrying. But I've had so much positive feedback over the last few months from people all over the world.

    Unfortunately Johnasson hasn't been around for some time, so I don't have any matches of him.

    By the way, these clips also play on Nero showtime.

    The bold background colors hurt my eyes. I cannot remain on either of your two sub-pages for more than a few seconds before my eyes and head start hurting.

    Nice try, but where did the clips come from?

    It seems they are taken from EuroSport TV broadcasts. If these are what you are trying to sell (the entire match), get ready for the lawyers. Those broadcasts are copyrighted material, and when they decide to pounce, you are going to have to pay a LOT of $$$.

    Not that I don't enjoy watching some old matches, but you can not sell matches (which it appears the site is trying to do using PayPal) that you've obtained from broadcast.

    Just to let you know...

    laurie, I have never been able to view any of your matches from your site. After I click on match my browser reads 'Transferring data from www.*********clips.net...', then ends with a broken QuickTime icon. My server or network is not slow.

    I tried the following for example,

    http://www.*********clips.net/files/Aussie_semi_5.mpg
    http://www.*********clips.net/files/US_Open_1.mpg

    What could be the problem?

    The clips are to get you to buy a DVD of the match

    The clips are to lure you into buying the match on DVD. Below is her sell...

    ======================================

    For more information re the matches on offer please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached at laurie@classictennismatches.net and will answer any queries very promptly indeed. I have new matches coming in all the time.

    Please note you can pay online via secure paypal service.
    ======================================

    Even GIVING away copyrighted clips is illegal (which is why people are getting sued for sharing movies online) unless she has the written permission of the copyright holder. Its the redistribution which is the problem, not whether or not she is making any money, although her intent is to profit from the sale of these matches on DVD. Either way, she stands to lose a lot of $$$ when the courts come after her.

    Jason, these clips play in Windows media player. I know for sure that they don't play in quick time. Can you reset your settings on your PC to play windows media player instead? Do you have the latest version of windows media player?

    Let me guess, you're a lawyer? You really need to chill, we aren't talking about pirated movies, we're talking about tennis matches! You think there is a huge demand for old tennis matches? Its a niche sport with a niche following. Very few people care to see old matches & this is the only way to do so. Eurosport/ESPN or whatever is never going to make old matches available to fans. Once a match is over it ceases to exist. So let fans get a chance to see players/matches they've never seen without pooping on their parade.

    And really, you think eurosport will think its worth their time to sue someone selling a few tennis matches? look around, there are other sites that sell matches & there are many sellers on ****. there have been for years. and i'm grateful for it so I can see all these old mcenroe matches. and I don't expect to get them for free, because well made dvds cost money & time. No one is getting hurt like the music & movie industry. we're talking very small numbers here compared to those that download movies, etc. geez.

    Taco ... I have an Anglo Saxon term for you ... but can't write it here for fear of the moderators! But it goes something like Wa..er!

    Noone wants to watch? Speak for yourself little one ... and stay away!

    Dumbest site ever. First of all, not everyone is a PC user. Mac users don't like to bother with Windows media player. MPEG files should play in Quicktime player.... not WMP. Get a clue and make those files more accessable.

    Not to mention horrible navigation and stupid links burried 3 levels deep.

    You really need to get a clue about web design if you want to sell things on the Internet.

    Moose, you're right. It's hard to see anything from the past. A lot of people are delighted to see clips like this. I'll keep making them. There are many people who make clips for people on the net. We must all be going to hell in a handcart then.

    I keep telling you Americans I'm a man. Laurie is still a man's name over here in England! I believe you lot spell it Lory for women.

    up-to-date media player doesn't always mean "viewable" media (especially with WMP *shock*)

    Go back to version 9 and you will see your video.
