OK here’s the deal, few days ago, Youtube had coverage of the Olympic game but Americans were not allowed to get near it. The press has gone to report the madness of waiting up to 15 hours delay before being able to watch the Beijing Olympic openning ceremony. Most folks spend more time online reading about the results but were not able to watch it until much later. And so there has to be a better way for desperate folks. We’ve learned the trick and and are reporting to you so that you can watch the Olympic games live also with just a four step process!

On a side note, I wouldn’t mind seeing the game with a different team other than the USA team…see other teams on other sports…

1. You’ll need a proxy from http://www.xroxy.com/proxylist.htm . Choose a country other than your origin. You may wish to try a proxy from China. Note: Pick a proxy with lowest latency and highest reliability would ensure best experience.











2. Note down the IP address and Port on a piece of paper now.




3. Start Internet Explorer (Note: Firefox won’t work). Change your browser’s proxy setting. On IE 6, click Tools Internet Options. Click on the Connections tab and then click the LAN Settings button. In the proxy server section, check the “User a proxy server for your LAN“. Enter the Address 218.201.40.117 (this is the IP address you wrote down) and Port 808 (this is the port number you wrote down). Click OK twice.

4. Now visit a web site with live coverage: http://2008.sina.com.cn/video/live1/
If you have other web sites with Olympic live coverage, please leave us a comment below and other folks may also able to benefit!!!
