viewing videos online

I am currently trying to view football games on however you must be running either windows or Mac OS to be able to view them. is there any way to be able to watch them through linux? also would having wine installed help here at all?

I have no problem watching their content (the free part of it since I'm not a subscriber). Do you have the latest flash player installed?

It says on the site:
ESPN360 uses Adobe Flash player 9. You can download the latest plugin by selecting the link.
So if you have flash player installed it should work.


linux, software
