    Default Watching Online or downloading the videos

    I missed a fair number of the games this Olympics.

    Is there somewhere online that I can watch all of the games (from quarterfinals or semifinals onward)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. London Olympics 2012 website. But you'll need Firefox with stealthy plugin.

    Thanks Visor,
    I assume you mean this site?
    http://www.london2012.com/

    Where exactly do I go on there tho? I can see the scores, results and what not but no video links. Is there some secret archive?

    Thanks!

    Try the official Olympic YouTube site, they have most of the matches and great quality video:

    Also peruse this thread "OLYMPICS 2012 (London) - Videos Here !"
    If you live in CAN, i noticed some BCers mentioned there about CTV (or CATV ??), Canadian broadcaster's video archives accessible only to Canadian IP.

    I don't know. Some Internet wizard must know a way. Anyway, there are many download options offered in the video forum.

    Not sure how long these videos are going to be available on this site. I am very happy with their quality and the convenience as long as they are available.

    Great news! The youtube restriction is off. You can now watch everything on http://www.youtube.com/user/olympic/London2012


    Compared to the CTV videos, the youtube videos have commentaries.

    Sorry to hear that. The billions of NBC dollar are still hard at work. How about the BWF website? I assume that it will work eventually.

    wait, so is it safe to conclude that no one has the quarter finals, semi finals, and the finals uploaded somewhere where we can download?
