I have a BT video card, but I am thinking of video signals delivered
directly via internet. It might be necessary to have ntsb, pal and other
decoders to properly display the signals. I don't really know how video
feeds are transmitted over the internet. So far I have only watched
videos from Youtube, Google. But I'd like to get videos from England,
Germany and France for starters.
Hi Dave,

If you get it to work, let me know.... I tried the "On Demand" from Channel 5 in the UK & FR2 from France & both tell me "You can't watch that, you live in Austria" - most unfriendly. (At least my motorised antenna now lets me watch the 6 Nations on FR2, since they went digital!)

I guess one would have to follow the thread on changing one's IP address to something acceptable to the "on demand" service.
