Apple needs to get over themselves and stream them on YouTube.
And give Google more ad revenue than they already get?

You can find many streams on Ustream, roughly half an hour before the event starts. It's effectively a stream of a stream.

It's quite laggy but hey it sure beats watching it on a tiny iPhone.

In the past you just opened the Apple site in Safari on iOS. Find the stream page on the home page and it just plays in there, same as any other web video.
You just go to apple.com on safari. I watch all the live streams on my iPad. Although this year I'll get to watch it via Apple TV on the big screen :D

Ok, then why not HTML5 .mp4 video?

Guys,

I think I might have thought of an ingenious hack :D

Is it possible to use Google Chrome on Windows and change the User Agent to Mac OS X and Safari?

I don't have a Windows machine so can't check. Would someone be able to check?

Thanks!

Edit: Or, change the User Agent to iPad or iPhone

I remember trying several of those add ons during WWDC to try and fool the site to think I'm using a Safari browser etc - used on Firefox and Chrome.

It unfortunately didn't work :(

Yes... Thank you, but he was obviously talking about watching it on a Windows PC

This won't work as it's not just an issue of the user agent but they are using software that is embedded in Safari for OS X and OS X itself to display the video.
