2019 FIVB Women's Volleyball Nations League

  • Looks like FIVB has figured a way to circumvent my download method. They split off the audio. So I can get the videos still, but it comes without the audio--which is a plus in the case of the matches that Captain Hyperbole calls but I wanted the CHN v BRA match :(


    In need of a new method :sos:

    Teach me, senpai!


    Been watching the match from that fB page and it was HQ stream with good commentator. Any possible way to get replay?

  • dude, go to the FB page that sloth told us about. it's great to catch the videos with the good announcer.

    I can still watch all the matches with my FiveBuh subscription but I like to download the ones i really enjoy for keepsakes.


    I like to watch the ones I haven’t seen offline to avoid herky jerky streaming, and I can skip around more easily.


    I’m so against Facebook I have my computer set up at the system level to deny all connections to it.


    Thanks for the reminder, though. I may have to go to the dark side. :(

    With the $20 FiveBuh subscription you can watch and re-watch all you want ... until the tournament is over. I can't figure out how to download them though. I can get video but no audio. I googled around and this seems to be a new way that folks are protecting their streamed videos from being downloaded. Lots of GOT people unhappy.


    If you are in a country that doesn't offer the subscription you can use a VPN. That's what I did. I'm Canadian these days. If you are in that situation and want help, PM me. It's easy as pie if you are interested.

  • goodness gracious, CHN goes from C team to A team, bringing out all the big guns.


    they have such a surplus of good players. i'm really impressed in brasilia with yang hanyu. she doesn't seem to do the backslide but her attack in front of the setter is remarkable by how quick she adjusts her arm swing. she never seems to fully extend her arm so the set looks like it's too low, but she just snaps her arm and hits it so fast that the blockers can't get to her. i don't think she got blocked many times (as compared to the other MB, hu).

    Goodness gracious indeed. Lang ping took us all by surprise

  • sakoda i only remember from WCh 2014 x DOM, she basically killed DOM with her backrow attacks.


    the thing with JPN is, after their peak in 2012, they have not had the same quality since then. and btw, did anyone notice how short they are right now? they've gone backwards in height. their MBs and OPPs are 176 cm!!!!! as far back as beijing 2008, they had kimura, araki, sugiyama and kurihara, these were all 184-187 cm tall! in that team, only shin and takeshita were short.


    in the current team, excepting iwasaka, the tallest players are 180 cm tall (kurogo, ishii, akutagawa).

    Sarina Koga 180 cm, Miyu Nakagawa 180 cm also. They still have Haruyo Shimamura 182 cm and Erika Shinomiya(Araki) 186 cm and Mai Irisawa 188 cm, as one of the newcomers. 😊

  • I think so. That's how it works. After winning the set from Brazil to qualify, they take out Araki and Shinnabe. If Serbia hadn't been douchey and gifted them that opportunity, they'd have left them in and beat Brazil. It's all heartbeats.

    Brazil kept shooting themselves in the foot. 2-0 against Germany and even match points and lost 3-2. Gave up a set to Mexico. Went extra points and did not get a 2-1 lead over Netherlands (chance to get a 3-1 win and all three points). Serbia had already clinched so yes Japan benefited, but Brazil had chances and let them slip. The loss to Germany is what killed them from 8 to 7 wins and dropped 2 points too.

    LOL I know Japan can only win if another team actively loses. That's why I like them. That's DEFENSE :rolll:

  • So what kind of VPN are you using sitenoise? I have VyprVpn which is normally reliable and serves me well in the pass but for whatever reasons it can't fool fivb..can't go pass welcome without being redirected to the bs "not available in your country" landing. Anyway have you tried using jdownloader 2 for your "procuring needs"?

  • So only china and Poland has new roster for 2nd week? Interesting for china, i mean they are the host and even though they will not be able to make it to top 5 they are still part of final 6.


    I heard usa will have the same roster? Exciting how these young team will play against serbia wil bosko and mihajlovic and there is a high possibility that italy will change their roster too against usa and serbia.

  • Italy roster for week 2

  • I heard usa will have the same roster? Exciting how these young team will play against serbia wil bosko and mihajlovic

    Serbia will perform at the next tournaments without the main players ( Boskovic, Mihajlovic, Veljkovic ). The opportunity to play will have young players, with less experience in national team.

    Olympic gold medal, Sydney 2000. : Vladimir Batez, Slobodan Kovač, Slobodan Boškan, Đula Mešter, Vasa Mijić, Nikola Grbić, Vladimir Grbić, Andrija Gerić, Goran Vujević, Ivan Miljković, Veljko Petković, Igor Vušurović - HC Zoran Gajić

    Exactly. Brazil choked whenever it mattered and that's all we can take from all of this. Serbia and the other teams had nothing to do with it.

    Gold - European Championship 2013 (M) Prediction Game
    Bronze - World Championship 2014 (W) Prediction Game

    Bronze - Volleyball Nations League 2019 (W) Prediction Game

  • Wow Italy will the strongest roster.

    I hope to watch Folie in the action !!!

    What a fight for OH position !!!

  • I like Folie and I think she should be a starter next to Danesi! But isn't it better for her body to skip tournaments as VNL and only play important tournaments, because she is very injury prone?
