Argh - I'm having trouble finding the driver version I'm running. If it's in the repository, though, wouldn't I be running it if I'm showing as being fully up to date?

Your driver is just fine. The problem is mplayer. You need to recompile mplayer with xvideo support. See here:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...90#post3511490

Follow the Ubuntu guide portion about updating your mplayer install. Make sure to do 'make distclean' before rebuilding. Also, BEFORE YOU RUN 'make', look over the output at the end of the ./configure script. It will tell you what video output drivers will and will not be included. You should have xvideo (xv) in the included list. If not, we'll have to figure out what's going on. But one thing is for certain: you already have the xv extension up and running so that's not the problem.

Then after that it settles in at the 2200K stream (most often) without any problems/switching/drops for the rest of the game. I am west coast so more often than not this happens when I am watching 7pm PST start times. This happened last night with the WAS-LAD game. Couldn't get an uninterrupted stream until probably the 3rd inning then after that it stayed on and smooth and uninterrupted until game completion. Does anyone else see this behavior? Any ideas?
I see this issue too. I believe it's because this is probably their busy hour where a lot of West Coast users are coming online as well as the East Coast users who can still stay up this late to watch a few innings. NexDef (despite its recent rough days) has been getting better and I fully expect it to smooth out as the season goes on.

ISSUE: If a game does not have a nextdef stream (the SFG (AWAY) feed of the 5/5/2009 SFG @ CHC game is an example) the mlbviewer won't load the game at all for me. I have video_follow=sf set. When I browse to that game and select it to load it fails. I have to turn off my video_follow in order to watch that game...and I have to thus watch the Cubs HOME feed of it. Is there logic in mlbviewer to detect when there is no nextdef stream and load the non-nextdef stream appropriately? Am I stuck being a premium subscriber that I can't watch a non-nextdef stream? I haven't paid attention in the thread to any setup issues or settings for non-premium subscribers so I apologize if this scenario has been handled already.
The stream selection logic is as follows:

0. If coverage association is 0 (national coverage), select it.
1. If stream is in video_follow list, select it.
2. If stream preference (home vs. away) is available, select it.
3. If no stream has been selected yet, select the first one in the content list (the list of streams.)

I probably need to add an extra check for team in game matches video_follow but selected coverage is not available. This situation is not supposed to happen, but unfortunately, it does from time to time.

Although, honestly, it's probably easier to add a hot-key to toggle video_follow on/off for a particular session. I'd actually prefer this because I like "Gracie" (Diamondbacks) but I like Vin Scully more. So when the Dodgers were playing the D-backs, I was dismayed that the video_follow was choosing Arizona over LA. It would have been better just to turn off the video_follow logic and allow me to decide which stream to choose when two video_follow teams play each other.

As a premium subcriber, you are allowed to watch non-NexDef coverage. However, you need to remove the 'xterm -e' portion of the video_follow command because non-NexDef is a piped command from rtmpdump to mplayer.

A video_player setting that works well for me in both modes is:

Code:
video_player=mplayer -cache 4096 -autosync 30 -really-quiet %s
However, having said that, live non-NexDef video is still not supported by mplayer. There is still an open issue with ffmpeg to get this fixed. Archived video in non-NexDef mode works though.

I'll have either the coverage selection or the video_follow toggle finished for Monday.

SVN revision 200: Experimental support for Jump To Half Innings

I think I have the bugs out but I also think it's a low risk commit if it's still buggy. I'm leaving town tomorrow, returning (and sleeping) Sunday. I still have a lot to do before I leave that I'd prefer not to work on code tonight.

So, here's how it works (and what I know is already not working):

Pressing 'i' key will bring up a line score interface with the following instructions:

Code:
Enter T or B for top or bottom plus inning to jump to.
Example: T6 to jump to Top of 6th inning.
Enter E for Extra Innings.
Press <Enter> to return to listings.


Last available half inning is: Bot 9

Enter half inning to jump to:
Pretty self-explanatory. Yes?

Unlike MLB, I realize that some users would like to jump to half innings without knowing the scores. So the inning frames have a + if the half inning is available and a - if you can't select it. Maybe in a future revision I'll add the ability to turn the scores on. Sometimes I like to browse high scoring games and watch the big innings.

chomiak, if the line score graphic (not shown here) confuses Orca like I'm sure it will, you can turn it off with the following configuration file option:

Code:
show_inning_frames=False
By default, it's turned on.

Now, bugs...I already know extra innings isn't working. If you select E, you'll land in the bottom of the 9th. I also don't print out the extra frames because I got lazy on the interface. I will probably fix both of these but not for awhile. I just hope there aren't many 18 inning games until then.

The other bug is that my regular expression isn't sophisticated enough to tell the difference between 1 and 10 so if you try to jump to the bottom of the 11th, you'll land yourself in the bottom of the 1st. I do plan to fix this one next week.

Finally, I haven't tested this on live games yet, but maybe we can brave that adventure together tonight.

Please report all bugs as I'm sure there are more than I've accounted for.

NexDef seems to be working well tonight. Jump to Innings seems to be working too for live games. Live games without jump (Enter instead of i) come in at the right spot. Archived games start from the beginning. J-2-I works for archived games. And speed switching seems to work rather well. If only we could seek the stream without choking mplayer, we'd have the complete package. This should be more than enough to keep all you NexDef users happy you didn't ditch Premium for Basic.

Pretty exciting feature set. Enjoy!

Same error. One thing you can try is removing your cookie and sessionkey files.

Code:
$ rm ~/.mlb/cookie
$ rm ~/.mlb/sessionkey
You can also try resetting your broadband modem.

Finally, you can try adding your address to your user profile on mlb.com.

Preimium subscriber; archives but no live tv

Had already tried all suggestions except resetting my broadband modem; will try that and harass mlb again. I really do appreciate your efforts even if I'm having trouble getting in on it. Mlbviewer really is a fantastic program!!!

Anyone use the jump to innings yet? I did for the Yankee first. Better than watching the 30 second highlight reel.

live game plays briefly

Resolved the location issue; just as I suspected, even though I told them repeatedly, none of the mlb techs made sure they had my tv account with the right email address so they were putting the info in the wrong account!!! Now the game starts and plays for just a few seconds then quits and goes back to the main listings screen. I'm pretty sure it's something with mplayer as I get something about can not open socket and file not found and only one byte consumed instead of some other number of bytes. I know there are posts about debugging mplayer problems so I probably need to look for them but if anybody has any experience with this behavior and has any suggestions, please let me know.
Btw the game isn't playing on my mac either not even briefly but is running in iceweasel; don't know what i'm getting visually. Obviously would rather use mlbviewer but this is encouraging.

I messed around with the Jump to Innings feature. Worked like a charm. I was able to jump directly to the bottom of the 9th of the DET-CLE game to see Granderson's amazing HR-stealing catch. Incidentally...it is just EEEEVILLL to be throwing 99 mph in the 9th inning as Verlander was tonite. EEEEVVILLLL~!!

Nice work on the JTI function. Incidentally...I was able to specify the AWAY stream from the main page before hitting "i" to go to the JTI page and the stream selection stuck. I wanted to see the catch on the DET feed knowing they'd show more replays of it than the CLE stream.

Those warnings are normal for mplayer. I have them too. Even the 1 byte thing. I use -really-quiet to suppress them and mplayer still works. I am not sure why yours isnt though. Maybe you need to recompile mplayer? I had to do that once to get it to work right. Or, have you run the rtmdump patch for mlbviewer? That could be another reason. Just some thoughts.
