I am unable to stream LIVE videos only. I can replay older ones just fine. This is at my work computer (lunch break, natch) but I have no problems at my home computer.
Windows XP, SP2, updated through LiveUpdates
Windows Media Player 11 installed
Divx Codec installed
Extra .dlls for Firefox installed to plugin directory.
Have tried the work arounds of playing WMP files on other sites and then trying Gamespot again. No dice.
I always get all 3 portions of Live Broadcast for On the Spot loaded and can live chat or do the trivia quiz. But the video area stays with a black screen and then says "Connecting to Media" then "Stopped"
This is a very disappointing problem that seems very common and should be a priority to fix. One of my main reason for being a paid user instead of free user was the advertised ability to stream live videos.
I did try IE7 and got the same error message.
Pretty much the same thing, except mine always says "Buffering". Any soloutions to this yet ?
I upgraded to get the E3 goods last year, and just never unsubscribed. It's nice to have video's in high res. Although if GS isn't going to be offering anything along the lines of the E3 thing like last year, I dunno if I'll continue my subscription much longer. It seems like there aren't as many benifits as there used to be.metroid_dragon
Can't really blame Gamespot for E3 downgrading. I don't doubt they'll get as good a coverage of the event as they can though.
