The only game they've webcast is the Kent State game. They'll also be doing Toledo, but I haven't heard of any others.
I have an iMac with a wireless connection. The game simulcast didn't work well for me, although the audio didn't have a problem the video would only go for about 15 seconds and then freeze. I also wasn't able to view the thing full screen either.
I've heard those on PC's with a wired internet connection did have good luck, and IE and Firefox on PC has a full screen button available that Safari or Firefox for Mac did not.
you won't need to worry about which cable is best. Because no matter which ones you use, you will get the same picture. I put it on a TV for kent state, and it is by no means a good picture but it was better then watching it on the computer screen.
Has anyone here tried it in the last 3 games? Does it constantly buffer? Hows the video and does the play by play keep up with the game?
I also wanted to ask the computer wiz', what kind of computer cord would i need to hook it up to my LCD and watch it? It could be a great investment for the next 4 weeks or so on the road. Thanks!
Honestly I was quite impressed with the Kent State game. The picture was fine (although small - but nothing I couldn't deal with). The feed was uninterrupted. I was under the impression that we'd have KSU commentators but had John and Eric instead and they were right on the mark, no delay.
As I understand, Toledo is the only game scheduled for streaming so far which sucks but it is still well worth the $9.
Wished I could hook up to the tv as well but I dumped the laptop for a desktop this time around which I'm starting to regret to some extent.
We watched Kent State - full screen - good picture from the family room couch. Over the course of a month, the money is an extraordinary good value. The Toledo game will be their video feed - I hope we put the ISU audio with it, but, I don't know if that can be done.

I used the s-video out on my laptop, slid the video window over to that screen, set it to full screen and watched the game. I ran the headphone line out to a receiver. I had no problems with the audio or video going out. Make sure to shout off your screen saver. I also did this over a wireless connection with no problem.
