Hi Strong Eagle and group,
I'm also interested in watching Singaporean TV from my PC, especially Channel NewsAsia (CNA). Unfortunately, after many attempts I'm still having trouble doing that.
Strong Eagle seemed to have an excellent theory, but it isn't working out for me in practice. I'm not able to use a proxy to view CNA Live from my PC here in California.
The live stream I'm referring to is here:
I'm a fairly tech-savvy person, but not a programmer or network expert, so I may be missing something.
I'm using IE8, with Windows Media Player 12, and manually changing my proxy in the connections area of IE8.
By all rights, this should be working -- but it isn't.
Instead I'm getting the TVU networks player in a "stopped" state. It never loads any content.
(This is the same behavior of the TVU player that I get when I'm connected from California *without* the proxy.)
But I can see that the proxy is working, because typing "yahoo.com" brings me to "yahoo.com.sg"... so yahoo thinks I'm local (to Singapore).
And I know my TVU networks plugin is working, because I can use it to view other content -- by going directly to the TVU networks site.
To eliminate the "time zone variable" I changed my PC to local (Singapore) time and rebooted -- trying all my steps again. And again, the only thing that fails the final step of loading CNA content.
The very last thing I did was download the TVU networks application for Windows and install it. I looked for a proxy setting there, and didn't find one.
Strong Eagle... can you tell me if I am missing any steps, or if there is something else you can thing of for me to try?
Can someone... (anyone! :) try the CNA live link for me from within Singapore and let me know if it is working?
As a quick aside: TVU Networks has a lot of good content, including programming from China and Taiwan. I like both their browser extension, and their Windows application.
Thanks, in advance, for any help!
