How Windows users can watch Apple’s live stream event today

Apple live stream October 16 event

It doesn’t matter if you’re a Windows or Apple fanboy, we all are tech enthusiasts. So if you are a Windows users and want to watch the Apple’s live streaming event on your PC, similar to last time and hopefully without streaming problems (remember that fiasco?), as Apple is concern, you’re out of luck as it will require Safari on Mac, Apple TV, or an iOS device. But there’s still hope, as Windows users can still be able to use the VLC workaround and in the previous event.

How to watch Apple’s event live

  1. Download and install the VLC player, if you don’t have it already. However chances are you already have it installed as it’s one of the best media players out there.

  2. From the menu click Media and select Open Network Stream.

  3. Paste this link on the field.

You’ll notice an “Unable to open the MRU file…” until the Apple live stream starts.

Now if you have an iPad Air, iPad mini, or any Mac product make sure you have the latest version of Safari. The event will start at 10 AM PDT/ 1 PM EST on October 16, 2014, (today).


If you can’t watch the live Apple stream, you can always find good liveblogs from the following sites:

Update: If the live stream ins’t working as you want, TWiT.TV offers a good Apple event coverage.
