That would be me.

I got everything working but the mplayer window would not expand beyond the default dimensions. The only solution was to use a software video accleration solution but that was so resource heavy mplayer continually crashed and the output when it didn't crash was unwatchable.

In the end it turned out much simpler (if annoying, as I had to set it up each time) to plug my wife's work laptop into the TV and use the Windows Flash Player.

If you do manage to get a working solution, I'd be very interested!

I got it at 800K NexDef. I don't mess with higher speeds because they are more unreliable. Also, I find Windows easier on my wrists because the tablet support is better but even with mplayer, the nexdef performance is worse. On my media server (old Linux laptop), I just do non-nexdef and it works great.

Maybe someone with a better setup can test a faster stream for you.

It's working okay for me (at least today), I got through the top of the first and into the bottom without issue. I have been having a bit of trouble with autobahn on the live feeds though, having multiple exceptions forcing me to restart it.

Argh! Like now, it's crashing about every minute now.

Archives are dead right now. :-( Let's hope they fix that soon. That's this error:
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):                            [HOME][800K][--]
  File "./mlbviewer.py", line 1518, in ?
    curses.wrapper(mainloop, mycfg.data)
  File "curses/wrapper.py", line 44, in wrapper
  File "./mlbviewer.py", line 1169, in mainloop
    stream = available[current_cursor][2][myteam]
IndexError: list index out of range
if you're seeing it.

Thanks daftcat

Thanks for all the work this year. Your development and support of Mlbviewer has certainly made viewing the games this season a pleasure compared to what Mlb offers.

Question... do you intend to continue developing this program? It has to be a labor of love and with your physical problems plus time constraints, it must to be somewhat of a chore trying to stay ahead of all the changes Mlb has thrown your way. If you did hang it up, it would certainly be understandable.

Reason I'm asking is I use what most consider to be ancient hardware and without Mlbviewer I suspect I'll have to upgrade my computer ( like buy a newer one) to be able to use whatever Mlb provides next year and there is always a good deal around if you have the time to wait for it. IOW, a little lead time would be nice since I don't enjoy spending anymore money than is necessary on computers. Truth is my kid runs the high-powered new machines which I buy and I use her left over junk.

You are a Royals' fan, right Straycat? They look to me like they have some decent young talent. 2010 might be a pretty good year for them.

So many factors it's hard to predict...

How are they going to change it next year?

Will there be an adequate solution to whatever problems arise? We lucked out here that rtmpdump existed (before it got taken down) and we were able to get patches from the ffmpeg team and that some of you clever types were able to hack away at nexdef and figure out how to use it.

What will my time look like? This is a biggie. Even though the economy is starting to look better (depending on where you're sitting and how much of the kool-aid you've been drinking ;-), I anticipate a demanding work schedule for some time to come.

As you noted, my hands and wrists get over-taxed in proportion to the demands of the work schedule. Lately, they haven't felt so bad because we're in a between-projects lull. When we get full-swing into the next project and especially closer to release deadlines I may not even want to look at a computer when I get off work.

There are no guarantees but I'll tell you that I'll at least want to get something that works for me next year. Being able to chill out in front of a ballgame allows me to relax over-tired muscles.

If I get a chance (e.g. all the work, health, other life stars align), I'd like to re-write the code to make it easier to support previous seasons in object-oriented fashion (one gamestream to rule them all, inherited subclasses for the specific seasons.) I also want to write a "gui" library to clean up the main mlbviewer.py code in the same fashion (listings window, statusbar, play function, and inherited classes to handle season-to-season details.)

If I don't get a chance, 2010 mlbviewer will likely ditch backwards compatibility in favor of a quick and dirty year-to-year solution. I don't get the feeling that too many of you watch previous year games because nobody has complained that 2008 games aren't working with this year's code.

So the short answer (is it too late for a short answer?) is "we'll just have to wait and see."

It might not be a bad idea to get a new computer anyway as mlb keeps moving in the direction of not supporting older hardware. And with Windows 7 coming out next month, there's bound to be some good deals around.

I appreciate your reply. However, I have a suggestion and it is naturally only my opinion but I hope if you do support Mlbviewer it is kept simple. And the major reason for this is that if you over extend yourself with all of your plans, you may simply throw you hands up and say [redacted]it! And then we are screwed unless some competent character who enjoys thankless tasks picks up where you left off and that is not a gamble I'd put much money into.

Nice little things like "jump to an inning" are fine but if you could simply keep Mlbviewer up with MLB changes next year so I can from the terminal avoid the webpage and the silly flash player(assuming they even use it next year... could even revert to something similar to Silverlight or worse.. who knows?) and get both radio and tv even if only the 800 stream... that to me is all I want. I just want to be able to watch or listen to the game with Linux without the absurd "conspicuous consumption" upgrades that a pig outfit like Mlb finds necessary to boost their revenue. I keep a very small partition with xp on it just in case, but believe me, I don't want to have to use it.

And for all you freeloaders out there - send this guy a few bucks to show your appreciation for all his work. I don't know Adam from Adam but to avoided being groped by Madison Ave (particularly when you are enjoying a superior product) should be worth at least $10-$20... if we have to... bribe him. ;-)

Emergency fix - daftcat?

i agree with wolfvorkian -- i would be 100% satisfied if mlbviewer worked next year exactly as it did this season. if you want to add bells and whistles, no worries, but certainly we appreciate the work you have put in the project, making the viewing experience that much better for us all.

that being said, any chance it will work for the playoffs?

i didn't know this service existed, but for those of us who will be traveling or are on the west coast trying to watch the alds, this would be great!

thanks again!

For anyone trying to watch game 163 live and running into multi-angle, try this:

Code:
test/stdout.py 14-272749-2009-10-06 MLB_FLASH_800K_STREAM 7013641
That will give you the rtmpdump'ed 800K stream but at least it's the right angle.

Similar might work for nexdef but I'm not sure.

Fixing code isn't exactly how I want to spend my sick day. Of course, being sick isn't exactly how I want to spend it either.

If anyone wants to take a stab at the fix, I think it's parse_soap_content() and check the view-key parameter and exclude the MULTIANGLE whatever key. Use stdout.py <event-id> | tee logfile to see the soap tree to parse.
