Re: OT: How to receive Nasa Select?



Getting closer...  It recognizes FF 2.0, but doesn't catch on that I'm on a 
Linux box.  So, the .exe installer file doesn't do me too much good...

By the way, the whooda add-in doesn't show up on Firefox's site.  Makes me a 
little nervous...

My experience was just the opposite.  Firefox 2.0 works and IE7 does not.  
Under IE7, I get a message telling me to download Windows Media player 
(which was already installed).  I downloaded the latest version from 
Microsoft, and it still tells me that I need the media player.

There does not seem to be any support on whooda.com, so I looked up the 
parent company at www.vdc.com.  It is a subscription service, but NASA TV is 
free and the viewer can be resized and moved around on the screen.  Under 
IE7, I got audio at www.vdc.com, but no video.  Just for grins, I tried 
Firefox 2.0 and the site recognized my browser, asked to install an add-on 
to firefox, and it worked great!  I did not try www.whooda.com prior to 
installing the add-on.  BTW - The high definition video loop demo is 
impressive.  You need about 3Mbps to get the HD stream.

I watched ANDE, FCAL and RAFT deployment via the NASA TV Landing page.  Sure 
wish I had known about these other sites.  The resolution is much better!  
and... mentioning amateur satellites makes me feel better about responding 
to an off topic post. :-)

whooda.com does not appear to work under Firefox, so I suggest you open in
MS IE.
