KBS, MBC ...
A lot of you wanted to watch streaming videos but failed with online sites and tired of TVants crashing all the time, right?
Here is the solution. For the moment, it worked to all the time. Vista for sure, XP at least...i think Mac too.
Well it works. Personally the image goes smoothly. But some people still get freezing images sometimes.1/ Download VLC 0.8.5http://www.oldapps.com/VLC_Player.php
Very important : this tutorial may not work for latest versions of VLC (9.0 or more i think...)
To check your version of VLC: Help > About...
EDIT: Some say that this method also works with newer version of VLC. It also works with WMP and Gom Player (press Alt to get Menu > same method)
So yeah...just try.
I read somewhere that there are some problems with WMP and streaming links. > Still want to watch with WMP ?2/ Follow these steps
a- File > Network
c- Paste the stream link (it automaticaly paste in the bottom box)
d- Tick the buffering/caching button. Let the defaut value. (i've put Optional
but in fact it's Mandatory
e- Ok > Enjoy! ^^Official Stream Links:
(help this tutorial by giving other stream link ^^)(Official links don't work during a major sporting event outside of Korea)KBS

Note: Some of these links work better in Windows Media Player then VLC.KBS
mms://188.8.131.52/tbc_tv (works fine with Gom Player)

- Close everything such as MSN/antivirus/etc that ruin internet connection AND video memory.
- Disable your firewall.
The image might freeze from time to time.
It's no big deal. Actually it's a good sign if you just get the image/sound for 3sec then freezing.
Just retry again. There is no buffering time like in TVants, so hopefully you won't miss a lot.About Caching option:
What the Caching option is, for people that like to tinker a bit, is setting how much of the stream you want to pre-download before the video starts.
So a caching amount of 5700 means that you are downloading the video in 5700 millisecond chunks.Fast internet connection: You can easily increase this amount to get a smoother picture.
Low internet connection: Dropping the value should help.
For Vista users: the computer automaticaly changes to Aero. Don't freak out XD4/ Still not working at all?
I don't know...be persistent XD
If you have a problem about the steps and stuff, you can PM me. Or leave a comment.
