Quick question: Is it currently possible to specify on the command line which config file mlbviewer should take its settings from? Now that I've implemented realtime streaming to my phone, I'd like to be able to put those settings in their own config file and call it when I want to use that feature.

Dunno about the yanks-tigers game and not going to be able to do anything with mlbviewer this weekend. Traveling to Phoenix for Spring Training and left the laptop behind. If it's a baseball emergency, use the flash applet. . Not sure if the f key works anymore but you could give that a try.

Theo, that's a negative. When I get an idea how the new season will work, I'll feel more comfortable about adding new features.

hi daftcat,

hope you are having a great time in phoenix!

the flash-key (f) in mlbviewer still works fine, however, watching livegames in any other way with mlbviewer is not working. archived games work fine for me.

i assume mlb.com has changed the stream-location for games.

can we help to figure out how to get the stream?

debug-output for today's cardinals v astros game:

File "/home/mrks/mlbviewer-svn/MLBviewer/mlbtv.py", line 1537, in flash_url
raise Exception,e

any way we can help?

Had a great time in Phoenix. Saw a game at Camelback Ranch, home of the Dodgers. Saw part of a game at Tempe Diablo Stadium, home of the Angels. Stayed out late last night + early flight = zombified.

For live games, I'll try tomorrow morning to see what's going on.

SVN revision 223: tweaking with the pattern matching

The problem is they changed the name of the live stream recently. I can't say for sure that this revision will fix it for all games but it is fixing it for games that were previously failing.

If you still run into a problem, use the test/soapevent.py or test/stdout.py scripts (use mlblistings.py to find the event-id) and tell me the url = line right before rtmpdump is started. Specifically, I'd like the text that says something like "live/mlb_c21_s800" before the "@" junk that follows.

MLB.TV video for iPhone 2010 has finally arrived. I can watch Greinke tomorrow at work without having to explain the bandwidth consumption to IT. I watched a little of the SF-OAK game tonight and I'm impressed. Maybe y'all should just buy iPhones and iPads and leave me alone. Just kidding!

haha yeah the new at-bat is sweet. I was watching it on the airplane today (go-go wireless in-flight internet--- learn about it!) It looks clearer than last year, but I still gotta find out how long the video delay is. I hate watching a game on the phone than walking back to my apartment to see that i'm half an inning behind...

No I do not have a iPhone, I have a nokia n900, is a way to made mlbviewer to work on the n900?, it is linux device, runs on a ARM Cortex-A8 processor,the same to the iPhone, has 1GB of application memory and OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration. It also has a Mozilla-based Maemo browser that has Adobe Flash 9.4 support.
Please

Flash issues

I'm seeing a lot of glitches with Flash watching games on Ubuntu 9.10. This just started sometime last week. Anyone else seeing this?

Yes; I can watch archived games, but live games don't show up at all. Live audio works OK.

The mlb.com support forums are full of people with the same problem.

Time for me to install mlbviewer perhaps?

Perhaps I should have been clearer. I meant lots of video artifacts in the actual stream. Flash seems to be acting up within my browser when playing the mlb.tv stream.

I don't even get that far. But they are definitely making a lot of changes to the mlb.com Flash player in the past week. Curious if mlbviewer users have been affected by this, or if all systems are go for the new season? If so I am tempted to install, curious if anyone can steer me towards a "getting started" for Debian.

(edit) I'm now watching Minn/St.L live! I guess they fixed the problem when they got back to work this morning. Kaput, I am not seeing the artifacts you describe. Maybe give it a try to see if this morning's updates solved the issue.

I AM TOO! and it's ticking me off! I was 'getting help' from someone on MLBtv.com and of course the problem was on MY end and it was MY computer.

Is there a fix? Otherwise, I'm cancelling the subscription and they will give me a refund! It's impossible to watch with the seizure activity

Well, I finally went ahead and performed a clean setup of mlbviewer on my install of Ubuntu 9.10 (using rtmpdump from Debian Lenny). I had been waiting until the season started and any issues were mostly ironed out, hoping to just watch via Flash until then.

However, using mlbviewer last night, I was able to watch the stream in Mplayer with pretty much perfect performance. Short answer: Flash sucks, especially on Linux; mlbviewer provides a well-working solution.

I'll cross my fingers and hope that MLB.tv doesn't break things at the last second like they often do.
