ABC begins beta testing HD video streaming ABC.com has now begun beta testing a video player that will allow the network to stream its television shows in high definition.
The player, created by Move Networks, does not require, but strongly recommends a 2Mbps broadband connection, 1 GB of RAM, a video card with 128MB RAM and a monitor that can handle 1300x770 pixel resolution.

So far, only four shows are being beta tested, with one episode appearing from each. "Desperate Housewives," "Grey's Anatomy," "Lost," and "Ugly Betty" are currently available but ABC says more shows will be added soon.

Each of the episodes air with "limited commercial interruptions," but users cannot fast forward or skip the commercials that are in place.

I tried it out today and watched Lost. Too many Lexus commercials!!!! It worked ok but I noticed after each commercial when the next segment starts it is in regular stream def. then HD gradually kicks in. Some freezing towards the very end. Other than that it looked fine on a 24" Dell Monitor.
