You can also livestream the WWDC keynote on Apple's Events page
Earlier we let you know that in a break from tradition, Apple will actually be live streaming its keynote event today. Usually, the live keynote is for attendees only and Apple will only post the full video after the fact, but today is different. And, even better news for those of you who don't have an Apple TV, it turns out Apple will also be livestreaming the keynote on its Events website as well. 

Of course, putting the video online doesn't mean you can watch it without using an Apple device. Even if you want to live stream the keynote from the Events page, you will need at least Safari 4 with OS X 10.6 or Safari on iOS 4.2 to watch. Apparently, even if you have Quicktime for Windows installed, the stream will not work. 

And, as usual, if you can't get access to any of the live streams, we'll have a all the news here as it comes out.

"Streaming video requires Safari 4 or 5 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Lion, Safari on iOS 4.2 or later, or QuickTime 7 on Windows" That's what is on Apple's website...

This is what I was was asking for...a live stream on apple's website...I would have loved to watch it on my pic but its okay I will watch it on my idevice...apple wants to make the WWDC an all apple event so it is obvious that they want to restrict it to apple devices...I think it's okay because this keynote is more important to those who already have apple devices

I just really can't wait to laugh at how they're going to follow tradition by bringing absolutely nothing new to the table and allowing android to leap ahead in the smartphone world :D

So the event page
http://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2013/
says "Live Streaming video requires Safari 4 or later on Mac OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later." Doesn't mention Windows.

So why is there a link right there to download Quicktime for Windows?

So you even need an apple product to watch a stream online, what a nut house

if you are on Windows and are eager to try and hack your way into the live stream, you can install a User Agent Spoofer plugin for your browser of choice. This way, you can try and trick the Apple website into recognizing you as an Apple user. Here's a popular plugin for Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/us​er-agent-switcher/) and Chrome (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-ag​ent-switcher-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfm​g). Check out the instructions on how to use those plugins from their respective websites.
