Full Length Videos

These are full-length videos in medium or higher resolution ( 360x240 or better ) and are intended for the serious viewer who doesn't mind spending some time downloading.  

  • 2001 Indonesia Open  - Bambang Supriyanto, Chindana Hartono Kusuma, Pulella Gopichand, Wang Chen et al
  • 2000 Sydney Olympics - Gong Zhichao, Camilla Martin,  Hendrawan,  Ji Xinpeng, Peter Gade, et al.: Sorry- IOC has withdrawn access to these clips so they are no longer available.

Problems Viewing Videos

Video Formats

The longer videos here are provided in one or more of the following formats. Note that proprietary formats such as Quicktime, AVI and RealMedia all have distinct advantages of their own but since they are not available to many users and their future usability depends upon specific companies they are not used here. Also streaming formats are not provided since the net is simply not broadband enough for high resolution streaming video.

All the longer videos are provided in the open MPEG standard and at present all are provided in pieces small enough to fit on CDROM's (700MB or less).
