    Clone Zone Broadcast Question

    Since the game is not on TV anywhere, is anyone concerned with the Clone Zone site being really slow, or is it capable of handling very large numbers of people watching? I live in North Carolina and would love to watch the game, but I'm concerned it will be worthless with such heavy traffic.

    Anybody know?

    I'm concerned. I've been trying to watch Chizik's presser all day and can't get more than a few seconds to play.

    I got an email the other day from the athletic department stating that they have done significant testing in preparation for the Kent State game, and that XOS was going to have technicians monitoring the broadcast to make sure everything was working. I guess we'll see...

    I would be worried. Cyclones.com is hideously slow. If my site was that bad, I would be fired.

    I should've read this thread before subscribing for a month. I really want to see the first game so hopefully it will ok.

    It better be. Or refunds will be expected. I reserve the right on any purchase to be a harassing PITA.

    Re: Clone Zone Broadcast Question

    Does anyone else have problems getting the sample video (the run) to play on the registration page? When I click on "watch video" it opens up a new window with the media player screen and just sits there. Clicking play has no effect. I know I subscribed to the Clone Zone last year and watched those few bball games that were free video board feeds and it worked fine. I seem to remember having trouble with the sample video at that time too. I think I will bring my laptop home on Thursday night just in case...

    The entire XOS network has taken a huge dump the last couple of days. Unfortunately, cyclones.com (and the Clone Zone) has been caught up in it.

    Re: Clone Zone Broadcast Question

    I watched part of the volleyball game vs creighton and I didn't have any problems. No buffering at all except for the very beginning. Granted I imagine there will be a few more people watching the football game.

    Re: Clone Zone Broadcast Question

    I didn't have too many problems with the BB games last year. As theshadow stated though, XOS has been dropping a big load the last few days so I'm pretty worried about what its going to be like, because I'm sure more people would watch the FB than watched the BB games last year. I'm not confident in XOS's abilities at all.

    I already received my refund. Call the help number and they will refund your fee.
