    I have downloaded PPLive and TVAnts, and I could not get either of the semifinals at Monte Carlo to work today.

    Could someone please tell me what I have to do to watch the final between Federer and Nadal tomorrow?

    I really don't know how to navigate channels or find the links I need to show tennis. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    Thanks

    you can forget pplive and tvants tvkoo etc.cause no channel they have is showing the final
    the only way is peercast on sport + (french channel), but they are scheduled to show Fed-Cup 1 pm and the final starts 2.30 pm :(
    so we better hope the Fed-Cup match ends fast...

    you need this program

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    After I download that program, is there a channel or a link I need to click on?

    What is your location? Don't you know anyone with The Tennis Channel? Looks like your stuck following the live scores. I can tell you that Roger will win in 4 sets.

    I don't get the tennis channel here. Cablevision doesn't carry it. It sucks, I know. I was hoping to at least see something on the internet.

    some french guy provides this stream and it's a wmp file
    I don't think it works with winamp.
    and you need to start it with wmp player or else no picture, at least for me...

    I have downloaded Peercast, then I clicked 'yellow pages' but I can't see any mention of the match in the list.
    What do I have to do? I don't have the tennis channel.

    it's not shown until the stream is actually on, which will be when the final starts, as I said one guy is providing this stream and will put it up only for the matches

    Here is the link

    you will see there a list (most of the time just 1 event) they are showing at the moment. Just click on Play and wait for few secs.

    Vlad, I have the same problem....now all of a sudden the "play" icon is not there.....and when it is there, it shows 0/0...nobody is connected.

    It's driving me nuts, as I see Nadal has already broken Fed twice! :mad:

    Use www.sopcast.org

    Download the software and go to the channels section.

    Select Fanshop TV and you will be in business.

    The channel is:

    http://sop.sopcast.org/sop/broker_noauth

    or

    sop://202.101.35.149:29019/channel-21345

    You still have plenty of time to do it. It wont take long. Nadal just won the first set 6-2.

    A bit, but it is not too bad. I can see mostly everything. It does freeze every now and again, but it is pretty good.

    It isn't laggy for me on SopCast. I am seeing everything. Just a freeze every now and again. Nothing major.

    It's freezing constantly on me, especially now when it has been frozen for over 3 minutes. Live web video clearly has a long way to go.
