    Video on Demand - Clone Zone

    I was thinking about subscribing to Clone Zone but was wondering about the video quality. Has anyone subscribe and what did you think? Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Not bad quality. Only real issue is when everyone is trying to get on at the same time like for a game. It can be slow to get on. But once on, the video was fine.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Games are streamed at 540kbps. Press conferences are usually closer to 300kbps. Make sure your internet connection can safely handle those numbers. Also, it is preferred to have a wired connection -- but some wireless setups will be okay. It kind of goes without saying, but have the latest version of WMP (11?) or Flip4Mac (2.something).

    Most of the problems encountered by CZ subscribers are one of the following:
    (1) Poor internet speed
    (2) XOS network (which hosts cyclones.com) going down, not allowing folks to even get to the website, let alone CZ (this happened for part of the Winston-Salem State game)
    (3) Poor video feed from an opponent (like Toledo, who had serious IP problems all game)

    I subscribed for a month to get a couple basketball games and see how the quality was. Ran perfectly for me, and was excellent quality. I'll be subscribing for the rest of the season.
