    Any way to view these BBC videos??

    http://www.bbcattic.org/blueprint/me...fast_elk.shtml

    Just came across them and they cant play at all. Then if you try the ram files it claims it is a text file. SO why is it doing this?
    Looking at it in chrome.

    It's not playing here either. Could be bad page design.

    Are you in the UK?

    I am NOT, and I can't even connect to the server

    telnet rm-acl.bbc.co.uk 8080
    Trying 212.58.251.74...
    telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

    AFAIK, that's on purpose as the BBC doesn't want users 'abroad' to watch BBC content

    only UK for vids altho radio progs work all over the work i think


    opened with opera and firefox fine both times

    does not open in mplayer for me [text file] but perfect in vlc 2.05 standard for 12.04

    my guess is mplayer can do it too with correct plugin/settings but try vlc should be fine on chrome right click and save ram file [where it says view as real media]then open with vlc


    hope that works

    I am in the USA, so that makes sense.
    I tried using VLC to open the ram link and it had errors connecting.
    I have seen some BBC content posted to youtube.

    There is a solution: get a cheap VPS with Ubuntu in the UK itself, and then use that VPS as a SSH-SOCKS tunnel. See http://ipv6-or-no-ipv6.blogspot.nl/2...6-and-ssh.html

    or even cheaper, actually FREE. use TOR. and change your exit node's fingerprint to UK and to any other country you want to appear coming from.

    No need to purchase a VPS then.

    A better solution would be for content providers to stop trying to control their audience in this way
    You think that's air you're breathing now?
