Veiwing sports events on line prob

  ray27 09:48 06 Jan 2008

I have been looking at a site that allows access to view sporting events for free via your computer click here
In order to view the event you have to download certain software and the most popular one seemed Sopcast which I installed .
It works fine on my sons lap top but when I try, after it finishes buffering, the box where you view the event is nothing but coloured vertical lines, the sound is fine, can anyone suggest what the problem could be, any advice would be most welcome cheers
