Bonnaroo webcast problem

Specs: WXP SP3, P4 / 1500Mb

Trying to watch a webcast from the Bonnaroo
festival, via the AT&T website. I've downloaded
and installed the Move Media Player plugin for
both Firefox and IE, to no avail. Instead, all I
see is the following, mocking blurb:

"The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL:

The following error was encountered:

Unable to forward this request at this time.
This request could not be forwarded to the
origin server or to any parent caches. The
most likely cause for this error is that:

The cache administrator does not allow this
cache to make direct connections to origin
servers, and
All configured parent caches are currently

Can anybody help me? Is it a DRM issue - can
somebody in the UK see the video?

Thanks in advance - Sarah.

JCS618, FWIW, I'm in the U.S. if it matters and I got a 404 file not found when I tried that link.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for taking the time to check it out for me.

It might be that you tried after the broadcast had finished for the night, however, from what I've read of previous webcasts, it's as likely that the AT&T site is just badly run. I used to get seamless playback until the last few events - I suspect they're using a different system ("Move Media Player") that is throwing up so many obstacles to seeing the stream that it's unusable.

Ho-hum - I'll try again tonight!

Thanks again for your help Ed :)

If anybody in the UK would be kind enough to see if they can get the festival webcast to work for them, I'd be very grateful...

I've heard the AT&T webcasts this year are restricted to the 50 United States. That error sounds like what is called Geo Restriction and if you are in U.K. that pretty much confirms it. Sorry. I'm watching and it is great. The Move PLayer has stellar quality.

Hi JBob,

Glad you enjoyed it.....Grrrrrrrrrrr! :)

I feared it was a DRM thingy and that my days of enjoying the US festivals was over. However, thank you for putting a name to it - the AT&T site is spectacularly and, probably, purposefully useless in explaining why it didn't work.

Ho-hum...long live NPR!

Cheers, Sarah
