vcast - vedere la televisione italiana all'estero!!!

Postby Piadinaro » Thu Sep 27, 2007 4:46 pm

Ciao ragazzi...ho avuto un'illuminazione.

VCAST è un sito che permette di registrare le trasmissioni della televisione italiana (http://www.vcast.it), in formato video mp4 (è abbastanza facile da usare).


Tuttavia temo che, almeno in teoria, non sia molto "legale" in quanto, ripeto, in teoria, sarebbe un servizio utilizzabile solo da chi paga il canone (una tassa) sulla televisione italiana...

...in realtà credo proprio che non vi possano (nè vi vogliano) beccare, per cui se volete provarlo...potete dormire sonni tranquilli.
x iniziare:

nel menu in alto clickate su "faucet pvr", poi l'opzione "registrati adesso": a questo punto vi chiederà di inserire dati che potete inventare di sana pianta (e non è necessario inserirli tutti...per esempio il codice fiscale non inseritelo)...et voilà il gioco dovrebbe essere fatto.
Funziona esattamente come un registratore...per cui, se posso consigliarvi, io inizierei dai telegiornali (ore 20.00 rai1 o canale5)oppure dai quiz (18.50-20.00 rai1 o canale5).

E non ditemi che nn è una bella idea!

:shock:
ragazzi immaginavo che questo sito fosse il massimo per voi, dato che per un'italiano registrarsi la televisione non è granchè importante, ma x voi stranieri vi darebbe la possibilità di seguire programmi in lingua italiana, di qualunque genere...invece non c'è stata ancora nessuna risposta.
Come mai? Se volete vi provo a dare le istruzioni in inglese...

Piadinaro,

is this perhaps available only in Italy? I tried that link but I get an error message: "The requested URL http://www.vcast.it/ was not found on this server".

I can find it via Google and the only way I can see any of the site content is to view the cached pages.

regards,
Calum

And then only the front page. As with any cache - I believe - any links on the cached page do not work where this problem exists.
A presto

Mi pare che sia un progetto ancora in fase beta, comunque molto interessante, io lo uso per registrare interi film :lol:

I am learning English every day, so could you help me by correcting (In private, if you want) anything I have written incorrectly.

Success!

I tried the link at work this morning and was able to view the entire site and register as a user. The only thing I had to install was Quick Time movie viewer and now I'm watching Melevision.

There must be something wrong with my browser settings at home; I'll investigate that further.

It's more likely that your new IP address is not being recognized as a British one...

Hi Giuseppe,

I don't think so; it's a Government Agency and resolves to a .gov.uk suffix.

Wow! We've to investigate about the reason why some of your PCs can't see that website!

Meanwhile, I use a software to convert the mp4 to mp3, 'cause I don't like watching long videos at (at?) the monitor of my PC.
The software is called "MP4Cam2AVI Easy Converter".

I recommend to you the italian "who wants to be a millionaire", which is broadcasted between 18.50 and 20.00 on Canale5.
Other useful emissions could be the "soap-opera",but I don't think (and hope so) that you like them :lol:

Keep me updated!

The site works/worked fine for me in the USA. I've been watching the soap operas during my breaks at work. (:oops:) I can usually follow until they gave upset and start shouting or talking fast....

I like this site. It's a cool idea.

:o
is it Scotland Yard? Are you a detective? Finally, you found us! :lol:

However, I think that the easiest-to-understand programs are those which have the speker on the video ( :oops: difficult to say)...so this is the program schedule http://it.tv.yahoo.net/programmi-tv/ter ... efault.asp

Important thing: MTV has plenty of English-spoken programs that are italian-subtitled; I know that are pretty trash or stupid, but they could be a great thing for you, isn't it?

Piadinaro,

I could tell you ... but then I'd have to kill you!

I can now access vcast.it from home so it must have been a temporary problem on the site.

Calum
