Updated for NCPA Nationals 2014 Sunday

If you've done this before, grab today's link below. If you haven't, continue reading below today's link.

===============Today's Link===============
http://mobileriderpba-f.akamaihd.net...95/master.m3u8
=======================================

Devices with Kit Kat (Android 4.4 and above) seem to be working with the native player at paintballaccess.com/live. I'll continue to update this thread for people on older devices, or that prefer to use an alternative player.

Since Android has discontinued official Flash support, I wanted to find a more stable way to watch the PBA stream, since the native site doesn't work very well. If Flash still works for you, great! But here's a solid alternative that's worked on many different Android devices.

1. Download and install MX Player (free) from the Google Play store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...videoplayer.ad (I haven't tried any other players, I just already had MX Player and it worked great for me. If you have another that works, let me know.) As of World Cup 2013, try the S/W (software) decoder in MX Player if you're having trouble getting the live stream. H/W was resulting in the stream starting over at the beginning of the day, but S/W seems to be getting the live stream.

Someone also mentioned that BS Player works well for Kindle Fire devices with sound issues.

2. Copy 'Today's Link' at the top. (Or, at least on my device, if I click/touch the link, it offers to open it for me in MX player.)

3. Open MX Player, press the 'menu' button, press 'network stream', paste the URL from above, and press 'OK'. You should then be in business.

TIP: If you close the app and then try to restart the stream, you may be prompted to either 'Start over' or 'Resume'. Select "Start over'. For some reason this refreshes the stream and will give you access to the live feed. If you push 'Resume', it may start you over at the beginning of the day.

Also, toggling between the H/W and S/W decoders alleviate issues on some devices.

iPhone and iPad people, the PaintballAccess.com site should work just fine for you. They made it HTML5 compatible for your devices.

UPDATE: The HTML5 player was working on my phone (SGS3) when I visited the site, but it seemed to go back and restart at the same point in the past. MX Player plays the live feed.

I've had a couple of requests, so if you feel the urge to give thanks, buy me some paint, or maybe a beer at Paypal: jacob728@yahoo.com

Or support the developer that's enabling us to optimize the PBA stream by buying the pro version of MX Player: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ideoplayer.pro - Disclaimer: I have nothing to do with the creation, development, or any other aspect of MX Player. I'm simply an avid Android fan and paintball player that found a workaround to making the stream work better on our Android devices.

Alternate App
PbN user vijil recommended FlashFox. Haven't been able to test it yet with Paintball Access, but he says it works good with other live streams. Get the free version here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...owser.flashfox

-------------------------------------------------

Past Matches

If you're feeling nostalgic, it appears all (or most) of the old links still work in MX Player. It pulls up the full video for whatever day you want to watch, and you can use the timeline to scrub to the match you want to watch. It's sort of tough to get it to the right time on a small screen, but it works pretty well. If I get a chance, I might patch all of the links together here, so you can go back and watch whatever you want.

Incorrect. That's Flash as well. It's the same player from PaintballAccess.com, just embedded on ProPaintball's site. (Of course, unless you have an iPhone/Pad since they made the player compatible for those devices.)

The iPhone doesn't have Flash. It's something called HTML5 and is playing on your native video player (Quicktime?) PaintballAccess was nice enough to make an iPhone/iPad compatible player, but you have to use Flash on Android, which for some older devices, runs very poorly. That's why I offered up this option.

I am a fan of Skyfire, and that's a great option as well, but that option is not free for those who weren't lucky enough to get it for free in its early days.

I'm guessing you have a newer device... The Flash Player runs pretty clunky on older phones. Not to mention some older devices aren't even compatible with Flash.
