How To Watch The Olympics With Silverlight OR Windows Media Player

Since a lot of viewers are querying Google on how to watch the Olympics without having to use the Silverlight player and instead use the Windows Media player, here are the instructions.

Go to and click on the video tab. Then click any video to watch and you’ll get a popup window with video in it. If you already have the Silverlight player installed it will automatically use that unless you click the "standard player" link. Doing that will put you into a single stream that uses the Windows Media player. If you do not have Silverlight installed, you will get the option to install it. If you don’t, you will just get a Windows Media based stream
