The A380 Rollout Live Thread! Now Showing!

Tue Jan 18, 2005 6:26 pm

Guys, it's a great day:

I'm sitting in Freiburg, Germany, and in a couple of minutes the big event will start!

I even flunked out of University for this!

Let's add to this thread LIVE, as the action unfolds. I can't wait for the rollout!

I'm in school right now and our computers doesn't always have the right software for live TV. I think Airbus.com will send it with Macromedisa Flash. Anyone who knows of a live webcast with Windows Media Player?

The Lufthansa captain himself, he didn't do great advertising for his own service. He said Economy class will be horrible.

The A380 webcast from Airbus doesn't seem to be working for anybody. AFAICT there may be a problem with the SWF file. I note that if you decompile the SWF file, the URL the video streams from is:

rtmp://flash.zonepro.com/arirbus/live

Note the typo "arirbus".

DO NOT use the airbus.com feed, use the N-TV feed, as pointed out by geizistgeil in this thread. He also provided the direct link You need Real player though. But you probably have it on your PC.

Anybody know of a Media Player feed?

When a frenchman sees an Airbus flying over his house he calls "vive la France", when a german sees an Airbus flying over his house, he calls the court.
