Wewt! Something other than "Gundam: 20th Gundam series to rip off the very first series - ORIGINAL STORY BY TOMINO YOSHIYUKI". I'm excited to see this one. Overman King Gainer is cool and so is Ideon. Those are the only other works I've seen some of other than you know what a thousand times based off his original stories 20-26 years ago.

Warning: Crosspost ahead. Embarassed

I think I've found the link to the stream, but I can't get it to play. First link at the top of the list, labelled NEW:
http://broadband.biglobe.ne.jp/​sitemap/​sitemap_bch.​html

My problem is, when it launches in Windows Media I get a "license aquisition" window full of gibberish characters. (Probably unrendered moonlanguage.) And the only clickable buttons are "X", "Certificate" or "Cancel". Play is grayed out.

Does this mean that the stream is only available to Japanese viewers?

I had the same problem when I tried to view the Solty Rei trailer - also from Bandai Channel - when it was in the news a couple of weeks ago. Do their trailers only work on the Japanese version of Windows Media Player, I wonder?

Upgrade your windows media player, make sure you have DRM installed.

It works fine for me.

Also, I think you need your windows media player to be your default player. If you are like me and have quicktime, realplayer, and a bunch of other players you might need to have Windows media player as the default player because I've had trouble in the past as well.

Went into my Privacy settings and checked "Acquire licences automatically for protected content". Now it works. Confused

I think the site hates me. It won't even stream correctly.

Note: It apparently won't play on Mac OS X. At all. It requires Windows Media Player 10, which MS hasn't released for OS X.

I run windows XP and I HATE WM10. Be greatful. I even downgraded back to 9. Also, even on my other computer which does run WM10, it tells me the liscence has expired and doesn't stream.
Angry am I. Yes indeed.

Believe it or not, but almost every piece of Micro$oft software released for Mac ends up being better than the Windows counterpart. Sure, our lives would be better if the Mac version of Windows Media Player was just a QuickTime plugin, but it's nowhere near the loud sucking sound that the Windows version is.

Can anyone capture the link to the media itself? That might work for us Mac peoples...
