I looked for a semilier thread but didn't found any.

anyways I got a question my friends. I remember the Archer VS earl IPT Match, where the broadcast was free. and It was very Laggy. because like one billion people attempting to connect and see the stream apparently then Here in AZ AWESOME forums a nice guy came and gave us a secondary alternate private link, where it has little people connecting to it, and the Stream there was AWESOME and FAST :) So i'm having the same problem now, in the match that is broadcasting LIVE. its really slow to me, anybody have an alternate link? It's so laggy for me, i can't even watch the match :(

i'm watching here by the way.

http://www.internationalpooltour.com/Live/4-austin-murphy-vs-efren-reyes.aspx

Thanks for anybody who will input a suggestion or anything at all, i really thank you.

Schmidt won i think, but i can't see anything..... the stream disconnects on me every 5 seconds or so. then it freezes then connects again and so on... so I'm watching 5 seconds and losing 15seconds of the match every single time, help pls if an IPT Member who knows their links, give us and we will appreciate it ;)

I am watching it via my laptop. I have about 5 other windows open but as I have said earlier, it has been perfect so far. It is like watching LIVE tv. I have Verizon FIOS as my internet provider (about 15 mbps) and it is much faster than my old cable modem wherein I was only getting 6 to 8 mbps.

Well, thanks truly for the advice. I'm a computer expert, but limited to this (old) Redhat 9 (LINUX) system for the moment.

Using the flash player 9, I get about 2 seconds of video, and then it crashes.

ah linux :D I used some linux before, ubuntu, pclinuxos, and some other distro's

I watched a stream via VLC without a browser i've read a howto about this in ubuntu forums. but i'm not that expert. So goodluck there my friend, hope it works for you.

John wins. You could hear John tell Oliver that Oliver had some bad rolls after the match. John is a class act, I really like the way he treats other pro players.

Someone get TAR on the horn and get Sigel to play either one of these guys 14.1 for $$. Mike still thinks he's the king and its 1983 or something...too funny. He's a legend but he didn't do much on his last comeback at eight ball. If he's running 150's and getting bored like he says, they should get him to play one of the current champs.

KT pointed out that the last time John & Mike played, John beat Mike "quite handily" to which Mike replied "well, it was a close match". Mike then went on to say that he would love to play John and then followed up by making the excuse "well, remember it's straight pool, not 9 ball". LOL, already making excuses to why he would lose. :rolleyes:

Both John and Oliver are class acts. I had the pleasure of meeting them last summer at the 14.1 event in NJ. They seem to be pretty good friends off the table and respected competitors of each other on the table.

There's the rub...does Mike really want to play and does he really think he can win...

It's hard to say if what Mike Sigel says while commentating is really what he believes, or if he is just stirring the pot for KT and the IPT.

To make the video appear larger just lower your graphics card resolution.
I have mine set to 800 x 600 and it's almost half of the screen and quite acceptable actually..

(It still says "Reyes vs. Murphy coming up next!" for me. Matter of patience I guess)

I'm still confused about the rules. Austin scratched while on the eight ball and Efren had to run out with ball in hand???

Even KT and Sigel are asking what the rules are...

asbani
04-29-2008, 07:42 PM
if he pocketed the eight ball and scratches, its a loss.
but if he misses the eight ball and scratches, its a ball in hand for the other player.

thats also how we play it :D

Efren breaks dry. There are a couple of clusters.

Austin starts running. Sigel criticizes him for not "spinning the ball enough". Offers to give him lessons. Austin misses, not because he used centerball...

Reyes starts running but gets hooked. Make ridiculous cut shot in side pocket while breaking our problem cluster. Runs out perfectly.

I don't care much about the competitiveness of this match. I just love watching Efren pick apart a game of 8ball.

WOW!

4-1 Efren

Reyes breaks dry.

Austin gets out of line after a few balls, but Efren has a few problems.

Sigel doesn't understand what Efren is doing. Efren plays one ball to half a pocket while trying to free problem ball. Makes ball but misses breakout. Turns over table on next shot.

Austin has safety options but stays aggressive. Runs out.

4-2 Reyes.

Austin breaks...

<<wife interrupts me>>

Austin rattles a ball.

Efren pockets a duck, then uses his next shot to break out cluster. Looks good to run out, but gets out of line. Sigel questioning tactics. Reyes recovers. Sigel apologizes for being a dumbass.

Efren wins. Up 5-2.

That's why there wasn't a lot of betting. Everyone knows Efren can destroy him but they also know he has a heart of gold so you don't want to bet on Efren blowing him out and then find yourself mad at him for giving the kid a chance to shoot.

I think Efren is just playing shape a little looser and seeing what happens knowing that he can't lose. Austin is playing pretty weak, surely not near what he's sometimes capable of, but bottom line is he has no chance at all beating Efren missing two balls a rack.

Good experience for Austin, but its getting hard to watch. Why Shane wasn't picked instead of Austin still puzzles me to no end...
