Some Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Q: How long will it take to download a game file?

A: With a dial-up modem, about three times the actual length of the audio cut... probably not a realistic option.  With a high speed DSL or cable modem, a one-hour MP3 audio file may take 3 to 10-minutes, depending on Internet traffic conditions. So an entire 2-hour game may take 5 to 20-minutes of download time. A five minute audio highlight package may take a minute or so.

 

Q: What kind of quality are these MP3 game files?

A: In order to conserve hard drive space and reduce download times, these files have been saved as monaural MP3s in a 11:1 (9%) compression scheme, 16 kbps bit rate, 11025 Hz frequency, using MPEG 2, Layer 3 encoding, encoded by Xing (old) 3.92.  Explanations of these terms can be found at www.dBpowerAMP.com.  The end result is a slightly less quality product than what you would normally hear on the USA-365.com "live" Internet audio stream during the game.

 

Q: How do I play the files once they're downloaded?

A: We recommend using the WinAmp player and use the playlist feature to load the file for audio playback.  Download the WinAmp player FREE at www.WinAmp.com.

 

Q: When will the next Crown Point Bulldog Baseball or Softball game be posted for download on demand?

A: USA-365.com will strive to post all baseball games within 72 hours of the original "live" Internet broadcast.

 

Q: Where can I go for additional technical support?

A: For more information on the WinAmp player, please visit www.Winamp.com. We also welcome your e-mails at usa365@ameritech.net and we'll do the best we can to answer your questions.
