Once they dropped the choice of being able to have commentary and video in 2 tabs it reduced the value for me, not that I did that every game.
It's odd that some people can't do this. I watched the Wycombe game and listened to audio as well. The way I did it was to watch using Chrome and listen to the audio using Firefox. Maybe I was just lucky but it worked for me. I think the reason it doesn't work for others is that you are opening 2 tabs in the same browser.....?

The only problem with listening to the audio at the same time is that it lags a few seconds behind....which I got around by pausing the video until it caught up.

no Bob, tried one in chrome for video, one in Firefox for audio. worked for about a minute then ,' too many streams' or whatever...

wondered if it was due to my method Wink would be interested to hear of ex-pats hitting the same issue with two browsers..

even so, only an idiot would design it that way in the first place. Though I think there may be something in doing it to reduce the bandwidth/server load, can't imagine an audio stream bring that demanding though..

They do it to stop 2 simultaneous logins, they are limiting now to just a single login per account(it used to be 4) and they can't differentiate between audio stream and video stream logins they treat them as 2 logins.

30 years now and I've moved on and still we got the torys back in the chair
The current generation are out on the streets
With a whole new set of reasons to be fighting police
No justice and Stephen we know where to start
Gangs are busy tearing inner cities apart

30 years still living in a ghost town
Still dragging us down
Telling us the way we should live

Guns of Navarone....

They told me it was never designed to be able to play audio and video simultaneously.

Some clubs provide commentary (e.g. Pompey), but they have to do it at their own cost which probably means that Swindon commentary will never be added.

Have people found that the quality of the stream is better in a certain browser?

I get that, that's sensible.

 I don't get them actively stopping a second tab independently playing the radio comms. There must be ways to stop more than N logins.
