    Thanks for the tip. Just added Stealthy to Chrome but the videos are still not available. Any other USA viewer got it to work?

    Entering panic mode as the next game will start in a few hours...:rolleyes:

    Not strange at all. live stream not available where a television company has broadcast rights.

    I use Chrome with Hola set to UK and it is working. I am in the US.
    However, it is really lagging. I have to set to 360 instead of the 720p :(

    Thanks Indra. The 1st thing I tried was Hola/UK, which did not work for me. None of the Day 1 games are available except the trailer. Does anyone else know how we can watch the live streams in HD in the USA? Thanks.

    dude people died due to massive floods all across the continent. Obviously the wires got affected. No one needs to be fired. And stream quality isn't an IOC criteria. i am pretty sure badminton does a better job at streaming than equestrian or synchronised swimming...
    Hope your stream works better going ahead. You can try lshunter, in case it doesn't. If push comes to shove, ask those attending for periscope or meerkat

    All problems seem to have been solved today, good job by them! The old matches are still there but... yeah. Don't send the Kento - Domke match to people!

    Yeah, not always the case. It's not broadcasted in Germany, either, but the stream is always blocked...

    There is nothing wrong with the stream for big matches so its not an issue with the internet link. It probably more has to do with the cost of streaming. I'm starting to watch the FU/ZHANG v. FUCHS/SCHOETTLER 1500+ users without a hickup thus far but the previous match with lesser known players was choppy as hell.

    Are there any videos uploaded so far? I can only see those highlight videos so far. Are they not available for Germany or just not uploaded yet?

    They (bwf) only upload all the matches of a day as one big video, which is available after YouTube is finished processing.

    Which is totally awesome. Enjoyed watching Tien Minh Nguyen vs Lee Dong Kuen on demand.
    Thank you Sportdeutschland! (I even like the cute german commercial advertisements;))

    BWF or PBSI

    These things happened too in Indonesia Open.

    but then again.. i Think BWF and their so called media is messed up



    1. Many of the uploaded videos are not complete in Youtube. Oe example is the first Tommy Sugiarto match. 29 minutes???
    2. Outrageus quality. Lagging. Ugh. I mean.. i am using an university fiber optic connection to watch..
    3. This country blocking sometimes inconsistent. Yesterday (day2).. i was able to watch in Youtube without VPNs or things like that... And then day 3.. i cannot watch with proxtube.

    For anyone who is having problems watching 2015 world championships

    Try Use proxyflow. It worked for me. It is a addon to your google chrome and once it installed, It will let you watch youtube live streaming. Try using it for today QF. I have tried out from different VPN and all of them working
