Hello Polo World,

Together with Nico Pierik from Netherlands and Tom
(another member of his canoepolo club) we've made a "task force"
in order to provide some games from the World Championships 2004
in digital movie format so everybody can enjoy great moments
of our sport .

At the moment just the Men Final is available (GER vs HOL).

Nico and Tom have been working (hard I believe!!) to get an acceptable
AVI file and, because of the many problems with the ASF files (a typical
"movie file format"), they managed to create a XVID (video codec -
http://www.xvid.org/downloads.html) / mp3 (audio - www.winamp.com)
AVI file so, if you don't have them installed, you have to go to those
sites and download/install them on your PC in order to play it on your
computer properly.

My part is just to provide the FTP server (for the ones with less "computer
skills": a computer where you can go and pick the files to your computer)
from where you can download the file.

The size of the file is 195 mb and you can get using the following data:
User: polo
password: kayakpolo

and, once more for the ones that might need, if you have any doubt just
"follow" the pictures I've posted in attachment.

As my FTP server (in fact my working PC...) just allow 6 FTP users at a
time, after download, please make a copy for your friends, club players, etc.,
etc., so they don't have to download it also directly from my PC. Thanks.

Remember once more that you have to install the codec & mp3 codec (e.g.
from winamp) to be able to play the avi file.

That's all for now .

Thanks a lot Nico and Tom.

Best regards.

João Botelho.

PS -
If your PC has a video card with "TV-Out" watch the game on your
TV because it will be much better there.

Help wanted..I just found out that I'm a complete disaster in these things. Movie has been downloaded succesfully, but I most certainly need some help how to get this XVId programs running.

Any suggestions are more than welcome...

Martijn thanks very much, files XVid have been installed in C:\programs, but that's were my knowlegde stops. Problem is that I'm a complete incompetent It-user. So a little more help would be appreciated.

In favour you 'll earn one "none-pushover" in case we'll play Hoofklasse again... (might be around the time i'll retire)

There is no directory index so you will have to use the whole URL. When there is more material you will find it here.
