Watching World Superbike LIVE online

Some people have been asking how to watch WSB live?

Visit www.worldsbk.com first, to see if the movie loads. If it doesn't, here are the steps to make it work.

We are blocked in the US from watching WSB live because of Speedvision's rights to the series. The solution is very simple; make your computer think that its from europe! The answer is to use a proxy server which is something that you can do on both Mac's and PC's. Sadly I don't know how to make it work on PC's, but on mac's its quite simple.

Step 1; Find a proxy server that is in a country that broadcasts the race live.
http://www.publicproxyservers.com/page2.html
I find the Hungry servers to work well.

Step 2; System Preferences>Network>Double Click on your network connection>Proxies tab.
You need to type in the number into the Web Proxy, Secure web proxy and stream proxy window's.

Step 3; Test the server using a web browser. Try getting online and see if you have web access. Then try opening up the world superbike web site and loading the movie.

You might have to try different proxy servers, but you'll eventually find one that works. Also, on a mac, Firefox is the only program that works properly with the World Superbike web site. So if might not load properly without the use of firefox.

Hopefully that works! Everybody should be able to watch these races live and this is how ya do it! You've gotta pay for MotoGP, but its worth every second!

Excellent hint for the guys that are restricted.

If I may also propose an alternative. You can go an register here:

http://www.racing-underground.com

(absolutely excellent site, you'll find literally anything about motorsports)

There you will find all WSBK and MotoGP races that you can download via torrent links (I use uTorrent client). All races and qualifying is up for grabs almost immediately after it's finished. So you can download and view iwithin an hour after the live fee has finished.

Hope that helps gents,

Doc

I joined last year for $30 I believe. I had no problem watching the videos archived or streaming.

I just found this thread and read your tips on how to watch on line. What is strange, is that I did watch last weeks 2nd race live without any "monkey business". All I did was go to worldsbk.com and clicked watch race now. With my luck though if I try it again it won't work. I'll try though and post up.

I was able to watch both races last weekend. I think I'll set up a proxy server just in case it doesn't work in 2 weeks time.

It could be your internet provider... I had no problems viewing the race from my work on a fractional T1, but DSL or Cable modem, no go.

Just tried registering but they require in invitation code.

I'll have to try the proxy server suggestion to see if I can watch the WorldSBK videos live.
