Who could confirm the time of this ceremony ???

Thanks

It starts at 8.10 pm SGP which is plus 8 hours GMT this sat.

If you are on the pacific west coast it will be around 4am? Anywhere east of that - it would be on at least at an earthly hour!

Dammit... Always the same issues with those webcasts for events of (apparently) high public interest. Why is it still impossible in the year 2010 to provide sufficient server capacity to handle such high amounts of traffic? Thank you, IOC (or organising committee) for thereby excluding the many countries in the world whose TV stations don't broadcast the ceremony (or anything else from the YOG).

The picture not only freezes every couple of seconds, but after three minutes (or so) you even get completely kicked out of the webcast. Big, big, big failure!

Same here (regarding the fact that every 3 minutes, i should restart the feed) !

The funny thing is: Whenever a song is performed (first the Singapore anthem, then that piano player's song), the webcast works fluidly for me. But whenever there are other performances, with more movement and camera cuts, the picture starts to freeze again. So I hope there are many more songs to come.

Much better than expected so far, I've been watching since the big flash dance at the beginning....but it really lacks originality, seems like these are all ideas from previous Olmypic ceremonies.

The show also looks quite expensive, at least from a Canadian $ view point.
