Consider live games not working for rtmpdump.

Rtmpdump can download the stream but mplayer can't play it smoothly. That is, it plays about 1 frame every 5 seconds.

Archived games work well, though.

I would recommend upgrading to premium or using the flash player for live games. I would recommend upgrading to premium anyway because it's beautiful on Linux with mlbviewer. Most of the development work will be towards supporting premium/nexdef users unless a better solution for rtmp comes along.

So I SVN'ed up to the latest revision to display today's listings correctly, and now mlbdvr can't find any streams for this poor non-premium soul.

Here's what I think are the relevant parts of my log file with debug enabled.
Code:
                  (user-verified-media-item){
                     media-item = 
                        (media-item){
                           type = "video"
                           state = "MEDIA_ARCHIVE"

Something broke in r172.

For live and archived games, mlbviewer.py gives this error on selection:
Code:
An error occurred in locating the game stream:

Requested stream is not available.

Requested coverage association: 145

Available content list =
[]
I enabled debug and it died with this:
Code:

    curses.wrapper(mainloop, mycfg.data)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/curses/wrapper.py", line 44, in wrapper

Hope that makes sense to you.

I've got the same error message.
However next-def is down too, so it might be an error on MLB.tv end.

Sorry guys. I had the same code working just fine last night and this morning.

Can't really do anything about it right now. If it can wait a few hours, I'll look at later tonight after work. If you need your fix, try one of the debug tools in the test directory.

I have this one fixed and checked in.

It appears the live games aren't including a streamHead element in the XML. That's only really necessary for archived games and live_from_start=True.

Still don't know what's up with the empty content lists, though.

I also suspect MLB's going to have a problem with Seattle-Chicago game because at the slice server level, there is no indicator of which game they are asking for. It appears only as:

Code:
http://abrlivec2.mlb.com/sliceserver/MLB_GAME_VIDEO_SEACHA_HOME_20090428
I suppose it's possible that the key generated matches one game or another since the request contains the content_id.

Okay, I think I have a fix for the empty content list but I don't totally understand it.

It seems the nexdef media-state is now MEDIA_OFF which I was previously excluding back when we were having JiBX marshalling errors. Since I wasn't looking for anything but MEDIA_DONE, MEDIA_ARCHIVE, or MEDIA_ON, I was returning an empty content list (e.g. no content in a playable state.)

I don't understand why these are marked as MEDIA_OFF unless they really were having Swarmcast network issues and wanted to tell the Flash player not to use the Swarmcast network. Which could still very well be the case.

I'm still at work so all I can do is verify that mplayer latched onto a stream and that Nexdef control tells me which stream it latched onto.

I can't tell you anything about the quality of that stream except that I'm not getting anything above 1200 at the moment.

Still, the fix is checked in and you all can test it with the caveat that, "there may be a reason MLB.com set these to OFF."

Even in the flash player, there are several games that say "media error, this is temporarily unavailable, please try again in a few minutes" or something, so it is an MLB problem, and not just nexdef either, these games are unavailable for some reason.

The strange thing is that these games were available yesterday. I can't check any games from work but I know I've been testing the Bos-Cle game yesterday and this morning and it's one that's been marked with media_off now.

My testing, at least remotely, seems to indicate that these streams really are available but mlb.com has marked them as unavailable.

The media error or temporarily unavailable errors you are seeing in the flash player may very well be the player reacting to the media_off state in the SOAP content replies. As I said, they may be doing some maintenance or something on those servers and so they are purposely diverting traffic off of them.

Wouldn't it be great if they are doing a Swarmcast upgrade to improve the performance of the dropped and downshifted streams?

If that's the case, I kind of feel guilty letting you guys pound on 'em when they might have a valid reason for turning us away.

Of course, they should really do this crap in the middle of the night so I have less sympathy.

Maybe I'll add a config file option, ignore_media_off so those of you who are truly evil and addicted to baseball can pound away and the majority of the sourceforge users who probably won't show up in this thread once my code is released will play by "the rules."

Are the streams that rtmpdump is dumping unplayable in mplayer, or is it just too much cpu load, or lag, or whatever?

like, if you save an rtmpdump stream could you play it back with mplayer later, or would you need to transcode it.
