How does that work? The main page that opens the video covered in ads that open another window saying something about installing a player.


ABP doesn't stop the windows/DIVs from appearing, but stops the content from appearing. It's a minor inconvenience to close the ad windows once the close buttons appear.

JUST IN TIME FOR MAIN RACE


Exactly the same for me. At least the main race was worth watching.

Can't close them.... pressing the "x" just opens another browser window and the ads remain....

In some cases you can't go fullscreen until the ad windows are closed.

 

As regards clicking the X spawning new windows ... not for me it doesn't. Which browser are you using? (I'm using Chrome).

Thanks

Re: VC018 - Why Is It Suddenly Appearing?

Just to add to the general complaints about the BT Sport online service, and share similar tales of woe from the weekend...

 

I switched internet provider for the sole reason of watching MotoGP.  Big mistake.  The service this weekend has been terrible.

 

On Saturday evening during qualifying I was dumped out of the video stream and got the now infamous vc018 error, this persisted right through to race day for moto3 and moto2.  During that time, I tried all the suggested fixes https://community.bt.com/t5/Watching-BT-Sport-via-the-App-or/Top-tips-for-Silverlight-Issues-with-wa...

 

I remembered that I'd installed the lastest Microsoft security updates (Win7 32bit), so after getting nowhere with the official fixes, I also uninstalled those, including an IE11 update which /appeared/ to fix the problem... Reading this forum today it would appear that this wasn't necessary as the service was eventually restored. 

 

BT - you really need to take responsibility for the platform that you have chosen to deploy your content on.  While I understand that you think it's necessary to wrap everything up in a DRM framework to protect it from copying etc.. there are, as many have pointed out, other technologies that achieve this aim and that actually work properly (hello BBC and the relatively wonderful non-silverlight iPlayer)

 

Having experience sliverlight on Eurosport for superbike coverage last year, I should have expected similar problems with BT Sport.  Fool me twice, i guess...

 

Tonight, I'm going to reinstall the missing security patches - I'll be back if the problem reappears after this...

 

Anyone on the forums know what the cooling off period for BT Broadband/Infinity is?  I'd be better off switching back to PlusNet fibre (cheaper), and getting a MotoGP video pass.

Re: VC018 - Why Is It Suddenly Appearing?

Well my error code has gone from VC018 to VC019 !!there is Nothing wrong with my pc because 3 weeks ago i watched the first opening moto gp race at qatar, i totally missed the america's Race including free practice and qualifying due to this STUPID setup from BT, if nothing happens in the next 48 hrs ! i'm leaving BT to switch over to sky, i would rather pay extra for a sport i can follow all year round without errors, and reading past posts i think others will also move from BT
