    Will there be a torrent for today's broadcast (even with no sailing) ?

    A big Thank You to Rudder, and everyone else on this thread. I was able to watch the NBC Sports Network broadcast, so stepped away for a few days. But I feel confident that I won't miss anything if I can't continue watching live. I'm a newbie when it comes to bittorrent, and am very grateful for all the help I've gotten here to get my feet wet.

    Thanks InnerVoid for the explanation. I was able to watch the NBC Sports Network broadcast, so stepped away for a few days. garpgarp posted some trackers (on Friday) I added them and did a 'force reannounce to all trackers' - that move got it started again.

    What does it mean if qtorrent shows 'Stalled' in the Status column? Don't know how to 'unstall it', so I'm downloading the files from the google drive. If anyone can help me use qtorrent, I would appreciate it.

    ah, ok, that's helpful. maybe that's why his replies to questions in the farce that calls itself the 'press conference' seem so . . . wooden?

    Isn't Peter Burling the skipper?, or is he the helmsman? I'm a little confused.
  8. My attitude was: I'm from SF, so it should have stayed in SF, I feel the loss of 'nationalism' (even in SF) rubs me the wrong way - It's the 'America's' cup, America earned it from the British, and for many, many years it was other nations trying to take it to their homeland. So I started thinking: "I'm just not interested in defending in Bermuda, probably not going to pay much attention . . . Then . . . I found myself watching a lot of Youtube videos about the cup in the weeks leading up to LV. I kind of get why it's there. I couldn't wait for LV to start. It seemed to be just Coutts and his 'mates' racing in a location that 'Sir Russell' and 'Sir Ben' could make as 'their stadium' for 'their cup'. Why would 'not-Sir' Larry hand it over just like that. The YouTube videos I watched helped me . . . somewhat. These boats are not what we saw in SF. I was worried they would be so much more like the 45s . . . but seeing them in Bermuda, they look a bit more like the 72's than the 45's. Seeing videos of them practice racing didn't encourage me. ......... but I got drawn in. Finally, thanks to 'Rudder', I finally got to see a full race, will all the 'race course' graphics and I'm hooked again. I'll watch everything . . . again.

    I like the fact that the New Zealand boat is sailed by sailors from New Zealand, I wish the 'America's Cup' hadn't become the Sir Russell Coutts Cup I hope that if America loses, it won't be to Sir Ben Anisile (which looks pretty unlikely right now), I'm in San Francisco, so I just can't feel good about an 'America's Cup', managed by Sir Russell Coutts, where all of the skippers are 'America's Cup' 'mates'. So, yes, I'm happy for Peter Burling and New Zealand, there is hope yet, and thanks TimBits for the background. New Zealand must be proud.

    If a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it . . . This thread is about the racing replays, so I think it's appropriate for most of it to be dedicated to how we can see this stuff. I'm in San Francisco and my internet provider is the Xfinity service by comcast. I can tune in for 2 hours to watch the NBC Sports Network broadcast, But it is like getting lost in the forest: Oh! Look!, Artemas is ahead! (cut to a commercial . . .) Now New Zealand is ahead [how did that happen] (cut to a scene of about 30 people in bleachers, all of whom start to wave at themselves when they see themselves in the broadcast . . .) Now New Zealand is rounding a mark . . . how far back is Artemas . . . wait for them to get around the mark and maybe we'll see (if we don't cut to a commercial) - wait! a ribbon is finally at the bottom of the screen: the races are postphoned, were are showing replays from . . . while we wait for wind.. hmm I think the funniest moment today was when a commentator said something like "there is a huge crowd of spectator's in the race village" . . . then they cut to a shot of the race village, and there are maybe 30 people milling about. So here is an interesting thought - this round seems to be all about 3 boats tied for last place. Just like American TV, it's all about who will be kicked off the island. ---------- But seriously, at the start of the series I got the impression that New Zealand was going to be at the end of the standings, with Artemis nipping at the heels of Oracle. Now it looks like . . . something very different, and I haven't got a clue who the skipper of the New Zealand boat is, or where he came from.

    I don't have any experience with any of this, but I can confirm that qBittorrent v3.3.12 worked for me once I realized could right click on the filename within the software and 'open container' to figure out where the files were. Then I could just doubleclick on the filename and windows media player would play them. - another set of files somehow wound up somewhere else and when I double clicked on them, WMP would not play them. So there was some initial confusion

    Thanks for including your snip - I've downloaded qBittorrent v3.3.12 and it appears to be downloading

    I finally figured out that (maybe) I can watch it live here in San Francisco on NBC Sports . . . that is if my infinity cable package includes NBC Sports . . . I'm going to try to tune in tomorrow, but I think watching what Rudder is providing us is going to be better.

    Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to embed the image. I used snip, cntr-C, cntr-V and it looked like it embedded, but it disappeared as soon as I posted it. The file is attached.

    Thanks InnerVoid, I found 'torrentopener' on Cnet (which I sort of trust) and installed it. I downloaded today's ACQualDay4.torrent file, used the Browse button on Torrent Opener to select it. I clicked on the Select button and It gave me this: (see next post) It's been 'waiting' for a long time, and seems to indicate there are only two files . . . ? Can anyone explain what is happening here?
