    Working fine here but I'm using the 240p resolution. 480p also works for me but I have limited data so I stick with 240p. Might bump it up when he jumps to see it in HD

    To the person above me. I haven't had any streaming issues so far.
    Thanks. I have changed to 480p and it got better. It seems the 360p stream is too busy serving too many viewers. The 720p also works well, but it has too many buffering interruptions.

    I am testing the 720p again too see if it will remain stable for the jump, otherwise I will stay on 480p.

    The narrator just mentioned there are 50 network stations, from all around the world, covering the event. I don't have traditional TV anymore, so I can't tell if they are broadcasting here.

    @lovinglinux

    Streaming @1080p from YouTube here with no issues.

    I've just had a look and it appears that it's not being shown on UK terrestrial TV, doesn't really matter as my PC is plugged into my TV so its HD goodness all the way.

    Yeah, shooting up at a rapid rate but they are gonna vent some gas from the balloon to compensate.
