Cycling.tv
 
Well, this is really pretty cool. I got turned on to http://www.cycling.tv by someone on here. It is a great time killer at work. :eek: Does anyone have any other such links? How about cool TV links in general?

You will quickly run out of highlight clips to watch. Last time they said they were going to do a free live race broadcast, as soon as LA said he'd show up, they made it pay.

The other thing is you cannot fast foward through highlight clips. If you use opera you will get the WMP seek bar (but you won't be able to select the clip you want to watch), but with IE it's hidden. I don't get why they'd do that.

Yep... cycling.tv is nice when I've got a Windows box available to me but I get no love when I'm on one of my FreeBSD, linux or Solaris machines.

I watched all the highlights. Now what? They haven't changed the highlights in a week!

To their credit, they've actually got a spot about commuting! I didn't expect that.

How often do the highlights change?

Not very often, true - maybe they change monthly - but the season is just starting...
I would guess with more content, they would change more frequently.

Actually it will work. You'll just need to install mplayer and the mplayer-plugin. The cycling.tv browser detection script will yell at you and complain but it's stupid (as most browser detection schemes are) and you can choose to override and continue. I have confirmed that this works on Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and Linux.
