I missed the opening ceremonies for the Olympics in Beijing and I wanted to watch them online. Searching around, it took quite a while for me to find them. Perhaps I’m just dumb, but I imagine I’m not alone.
So, if you want to watch the replay of the opening ceremony, you need to go to the Great Hits section for videos at NBC’s Olympics site. The opening ceremony is in 4 different parts which you can stream online.
Interestingly, the site is using Microsoft Silverlight rather than Flash (at least on the Mac). So, you’ll need to install the Silverlight plug-in. You will be prompted to do so.
It is definitely worth watching. It is a most awe-inspiring show. Really amazing.
