    Hi guys

    I've just spent the best part of the day downloading the HD football clip from EURO1080i. When I try playing it back using RealPlayer it says I need to install an MPEG2 software decoder. Can any of you people recommend one, preferably free! Thanks in advance.

    encaser, thanks for your suggestions. In my eagerness to view it late last night, I'd completely forgot that I already had VideoLAN installed. I've just played the clip and it's definately whetted my appetite to get HDTV ASAP. The detail is incredible. Once again thanks for your help.

    Rob.

    Yes, via emule. It took the best part of the day (for 204mb). I'm tempted to d/l the full 16gb demo but my ISP would probably throw a wobbly :laugh: !

    dvdmike. first get a binary loader software package like emule http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=71866
    install, then run the software, select connect, then do a search for 'euro1080'. select the hdtv euro1080 fussball file (normally the top most entry), right click and select download. use videolan (or other viewer) to view once downloaded. away you go.
