Ha ha...well after all my efforts to watch something, some clips are now available to download here...http://3dvision-blog.com/
Here's my experience with only a 2.2Mb connection. I could capture the raw stream with VLC but it kept cutting off after about 15Mb which amounted to a few seconds of video time. The idea was that I was going to download the stream first and then watch it on my other, faster and 3D compatible system. I ended up with about 30 clips of a few seconds long that were lagging and jerky. Stereoscopic Player wouldn't open them for some reason (they must have gotten
(Ye olde' English) corrupted during the download) so I had to open them all in Windows Media Player and screen capture them. I could then watch them in Stereoscopic Player in page flip mode. The 3D looked nice, especially the depth of field looking over the lake, but by the time I'd done the screen grabs etc the resolution and quality was quite low and so it wasn't a very detailed picture...certainly not HD.
I think the 3D will be a great addition within the context of the drama of this tournament and other future 3D events. Just looking at a 3D scene though, nice as it is, does get a bit pointless after a while unless it is used to enrich the drama of either a sport or movie.
I'm going to have a look at one of these videos. After my difficulties, I think I'll just watch our HD coverage and try and download 3D video that has been successfully captured and uploaded on the net.
As a 3D and Golf fan though, it's all quite exciting.
